Auntie Fashion

I’m the fashion world’s most-enduring muse.

If you can’t do it for yourself, do it for your country . . .

For those of you who are still waffling over what to wear for Wear a Gown to Work Day, I have a suggestion.  What about your old prom dress?

It’s rather wasteful to purchase a prom dress only to wear it once.  I’m sure that the lovely young lady in this photo thought the same thing, and that’s probably why she chose a dress that she could wear again when another special occasion arrived.  Obviously, she wanted her prom dress to do double duty on the Fourth of July.  If Wear a Gown to Work Day had been invented when this photo was taken, perhaps she would have chosen something appropriate for that event.  In any case, she was thinking ahead, just like you need to do before the big day arrives on May 29.

And remember, if you can’t wear a gown for yourself, please try to wear one for your country.  There are a lot of places in the world where women won’t be wearing gowns to work because they aren’t allowed to work.  Take this opportunity to show the world how proud you are to be living in a country where women like you are free to do their own thing, free to make money doing it, and free to spend that money on gorgeous gowns!

It’s not about you.  It’s about freedom!
