"The Most Beautiful Dress"

Share Marcia Munich's love for fashion and become entranced by "The Most Beautiful Dress."

When I was 5 years old,I embarked on my first adventure into the "World of Fashion".

Having seen a dress in the window of a small children's shop in Tuscaloosa, Ala. a week earlier, I invited my friend and neighbor, Frank (also 5 years old), to accompany me to view this example of Haute Couture for "little people".

WITHOUT parental permission and TOTALLY against ALL my mom's rules, Frank and I started out to see "The Dress".

The shop was about a half a mile from my house--through 2 busy intersections over railroad tracks and into the Jitney Jungle (a grocery store) shopping center. We navigated the trail without incident, walked into the store, and straight to the size 6X, light blue organza dress with pastel plaid ruffles around the neckline and hem. The attached petticoats billowed under the soft layers and I turned to my little friend, Frank, and said "Isn't this the most BEAUTIFUL dress you have ever seen?" (I don't remember Frank's response)--Nor do I remember the shop owner's comments or response.

However, two days later, my mother called me inside as a package had arrived for me.I opened it and there was "the most beautiful dress".

Years later my mother told me that the shop owner was so over-whelmed by my enthusiasm for "just viewing" the dress that she decided that I MUST have it.

The moral to my litlle story is that sometimes "just looking" means a lot more that "just looking"!

My Senior Prom Dress

Prom season is coming up in a few months and we all get nostalgic about that one memorable moment in our lives. Read on to discover how a prom memory is kept alive throughout the years!

Story by Jaine Flanagan


I still have it -- it's in a cedar chest in my living room. I bought it for $15 on sale in 1954. It was originally $150 and was reduced to "get it sold." It was a limp rag when I tried it on, but I knew it had possibilities.

Notes from Nicole

We're all about go green here at The Wardrobe! What about recycling clothes though?  Ever thought about it?  Take a look at a short story from Nicole from Withee, Wisconsin!

This past Monday morning, I was suffering from a bit of post-Christmas blues.  All the holiday hubbub is over, the Christmas cookies are all gobbled up (which doesn't take long in our house), Christmas songs have left the air waves and the holiday greetings have left the lips of friends, family and store keepers, not to return until December 2010.  It's just plain old winter from this point on.  Cold, frigid January has taken hold of our lives with an icy grip.


Feature: Meet the Queen of Green!

Look at what we've stumbled across!  
And here we thought Heather was the "Queen of Post-Its"!

Is it just me, or have you noticed that old Bing Crosby classic is suddenly out of tune?
