I was recently told I had to wear a vintage dress to a birthday bash in my hometown.
It was my second birthday party and my mother, a retired fashion designer, had planned to go dressed up in one of her vintage suits.
She had a vintage Louis Vuitton watch and a vintage leather belt.
“I don’t have to go to a tailor.
I can just wear the clothes,” she said.
I was told I needed to wear the suit in the first place.
When I went into the tailor’s shop, I saw a man in a dress and a leather jacket with a gold necklace and a silk scarf.
The clothes were a gift from a friend.
But then I realised I had the same old thing, which was not in the suit.
We bought the suit from a shop in Sydney’s CBD, but the tailor, who also happened to be my mother-in-law, was adamant about it.
He said the suit would fit, but it wouldn’t look as good as a dress.
For three months I wore it in the dressing room, in the mirror and on the sofa.
I loved it, and I wore the suit at the next birthday party in Melbourne.
After that, I went back to wearing the suit only when my mother went to visit a friend in London.
My friend said she wanted to wear it too, and my sister was worried about how it would look.
So I went to my local shop in Melbourne and bought it, expecting to be able to wear that suit for my sister and my family.
In the end, I was still shocked that the suit didn’t fit as well.
At first, I had thought that I had worn the suit to a party.
There was one of the guys at the party in the wardrobe who knew it was vintage.
He said it was from when he was a young man.
I was stunned and asked why it didn’t suit me.
His reply was that it wasn’t.
And then my sister said she was wearing the same vintage suit that she wore at my first birthday party, but she wore it to the first wedding in the past decade.
Her sister had bought it from a thrift shop, but her mother insisted on it being from her old life.
Then the designer who made it told me that it would only fit me if I wore this suit for the next three months, which meant I had been wearing the old suit for years.
This suit has lasted me through many, many wedding receptions, and to this day I still wear it every time I get married.
As for my mother in law, she said she liked wearing it and would wear it at weddings.
