This 1947 wedding dress was “made from a nylon parachute that saved the groom’s life during World War II.”

Just a reminder

I’ve moved tumblrs.The new one will hopefully be more varied, expressive, and me. If you still wish to follow me or I follow you and you have changed names in the past few weeks, please let me know by replying to this or via ask box. I don’t want to post the link because I think most people just follow this as a fashion blog and I want to return to feeling more like a part of a community. :) I will be leaving the blog up and letting the queue run out, but it will no longer be in use.

Thank you to everyone who supported this tumblr. ♥

I’ve been losing interest in my Tumbr. Because that the demands of school have so limited my use, and because I follow so many people, I can barely keep up with those who I consider friends. I also think my content has been less interesting, less me. It has just become some fashion blog, not mine.

So, in about 24 hours, I will for the most part stop using this tumblr. I may post some things from the queue, but nothing new will be added to my queue.

I will be starting a new Tumblr. There will be fewer posts; but, hopefully, the posts will be more diverse and better express who I am. If you want to follow me message me and I will let you know. Also, if you have changed your user-name in the past few weeks and I follow you, please let me know.

Thanks to all who have followed this Tumblr, and who have sent me kind messages :)
