My Favourite Item

A couple posts ago I asked if anyone had any questions about me (since I couldn't come up with 7 random facts). The only respond I got was from Jennie. She asked "Out of all your clothing, shoes, bags etc, what is your favourite item, and why?"

My favourite item is a late 1950s/early 1960's dress my grandmother gave me. It is one of the few pieces of old clothing she has kept. She has always had a deep love of clothing and held onto this dress as it was a favourite of hers. She gave to it me last year and it fits me perfectly. The soft green netting (which hangs over a rich brown lining) is quite worn and starting to disintegrate so unfortunately this dress spends most of it's time carefully folded in it's box. 

Here is a (slightly blurry) picture of it from last year when I went to see Swan Lake at the National Ballet in Toronto. 
That's All
