After yesterday posting all those gorgeous evening dresses for the Manor Ball I was looking back at some photos of me at the Stillbirth Foundation Ball over the past four years.
Amazingly I have gotten a lot out of one particular dress as I have worn it three out of four years (this makes the husband very happy as you know most men cringe when you say “I have to buy a new dress”)
The first year I wore it I was 8 months pregnant
The second year of the event I got away with wearing it again – this time not pregnant and feeling very glamourous.
The third time I got to wear it was at this years ball – four weeks after having Indiana (looking rather tired compared to the other photos!!). Must say I was not as comfortable this year as the breast feeding boobs were not allowing me to relax!
This little number slipped in to the picture for ball no 3 in 2008 (felt it was a bit much three years in a row so decided on something new).
Hubby certainly can’t complain after the use I have had from the lovely red dress (I have worn it to a number of other events so probably got at least 5-6 wears out of it making it less than $100 a wear!).
Next year it is time for a new dress – maybe I will pick one of the others I chose for the Willow Manor Ball.
