so cool! I wish I could participate, but I'll be being a bridesmaid at a wedding that weekend. I'm totally going to share this though, and I can't WAIT to see the results!

I wish I had pictures from what I wore from sixth grade through highschool: Flapper, Faded movie star (with floppy hat, halter dress, cigarette holder a la Gloria Swanson -lost on 7th graders), 1880's town dress, off-the shoulder hoop skirt a la Winterhalter Empress Eugenie/ Scarlet O'Hara. I made them all myself unfortunately there is no photographic evidence and since this was all pre-1985, the garments are long gone. Great idea for a contest!
