Formal dresses waiting for their moment(s)Part of my day was spent in our home office. This is where my vintage lives as well as my formal and semi formal dresses.
Seeing as the reoccurring theme for a military move is to make lists and take pictures of your stuff, I figured I'd start here. While most may not fully care about dresses...I do. I love dresses. I live for them. Which is something I doubt my mom would have ever expected me to say, mostly because I hated dresses when I was little. My mom couldn't pay me to wear them. Heck I didn't even know (or care) what the difference was between skirts and dresses.
Now by no means was I snapping a picture of every dress I own, that would be pure insanity, but I did take pictures of my nicer dresses. A lot of these dresses have seen a lot of love...while others are just waiting for their moment to shine. Lets just say I have a few ball gowns that haven't seen any love and I blame the fully on the lack on military balls.
I figured that since I have pictures of these dresses, that I would share a few with you as well.
First up are dresses I have worn. Some were for balls (dances), others for date nights and one for our second wedding reception.

I have a few others that are sitting in the closet, waiting for their moment, but these are some of my favorites. I have so many nice dresses, because I love dressing up. I love how I feel in a nice cocktail dress or gown. I just wish there were more reasons for me to wear them. One can hope and dream.
Do you have any dresses that you keep for those "just in case" moments or parties? Is there a dress that you just can't give up? Do you like dressing up?
