When I left the studio I could not stop thinking about that dress, I scoured the internet searching to find this dress to buy online, I Amazon'ed, I Googled, I Ebayed... I never found it. I eventually gave up the search.
Last week, I was back in the Vixen Studio with my bride-to-be cousin, Kelsey. My mom and I had treated her to a fabulous pin-up makeover and photo shoot with them and I came along to watch her transformation. I noticed that pink dress hanging on the clothing rack. "Oh you still have that dress, I loved it so much! If you ever get sick of it and decide to get rid of, let me have first dibs on buying it!" Nikki said, "Really? I was actually thinking of getting rid of it, the zipper doesn't work anymore so we never shoot in it." **side not the dress is made of a super stretchy fabric that easily slides over my head, and a zipper is absolutely not necessary*** I said, "How much do you want for it?" She said, "$15?" I said, "Sold!!"
So the moral of this story: never give up on fashion! I always say, if I am meant to have something then I will have it, that it will become available to me and my budget some how some way... finally taking home this pink beauty really proved that theory... (even 2 and half years later!)
