When Alycia was about 10 years old, she told me that she doesn’t like dresses and will never wear a dress or skirt anymore. I really don’t know why both she and Cass suddenly hated to don on anything feminine when they reached their double digit birthdays. But both the girls started to wear dresses again last year, albeit reluctantly, when we had to attend a friend’s wedding dinner. Alycia was again compelled to wear a dress when she attended her school’s orchestra concert recently and all her friends wore formal dresses! Her friends dragged her to the mall to shop for a dress 😁
For the 1.1.2020 wedding that we will be attending, both Alycia and Cass again felt that it’s a torture to have to shop for fancy dresses and shoes. I reasoned to them that they shouldn’t feel awkward wearing a gown or dress when everyone else is dressed up to the nines. They should instead feel awkward when they’re the only ones not dressed up. They finally see my point and agreed to go shopping with me to get their dresses on condition that they’ll only wear the dresses once 🙄
Yesterday Alycia went shopping for dresses with her grand aunt and Sherilyn at the mall. When Sherilyn video called me from the mall and showed me Alycia’s dress, I was floored! She looked fabulous and genteel. She’s never wore anything like this before, except the time when she was a toddler, when I dressed her up in cute tulle dresses.
Grand aunt reviewing and approving the dress. It’s an off-shouldered dress and Sherilyn kept pulling the sleeves off her sister’s shoulders to teach her the correct way of wearing it 😆
