Last month, a friend asked if Maddie would like
to be in a vintage wedding dress fashion show
called Unboxed Memories?
Hmmm -- sounds interesting, doesn't it!
Maddie agreed, tried on a dress and we pretty much
forgot about it since it was at least 6 weeks off.
Well, those 6 weeks zipped right by (just like summer break has done)
and last weekend it was time for the
The show was being put on by a local church as a fundraiser
for scholarship money for women.
The chance to wear a pretty wedding dress and help raise
money for women -- that's what I call a win/win situation!
|Maddie and Annie -- sneak peek at the beautiful brides|
they will be someday far, far off in the future!
Maddie's friend from cheerleading, Annie, was also in the
fashion show. The dress Maddie wore was from 1973 - so not terribly
old or vintage.
There was also a flapper wedding dress and dresses from 1909, 1912, 1920's,
1930s and every decade.
They also had a futuristic dress!
I think I'll stick with vintage!
It was a very popular fundraiser
(I was surprised by how many people were there)
and I'm sure they collected
a good sum for scholarship purposes.
Definitely not something that was on the bucket list for summer -
but it was a great experience and so fun to have a teensy little
peak at Maddie and Annie as brides way off in the future.
