Over the years my Great Aunt Mernie gave me a lot of really fun clothes. My favorite was always this dress with a beautiful peacock feather print. She told me she had it custom made when she lived in Italy. To my young, college self this sounded awfully glamorous. I was super excited to discover this photo that was unearthed in her house and included in the memorial service slideshow.
I had not worn the dress in a few years but broke it out for our fancy dinner on the town this week. I was excited to get a bunch of compliments and appreciation for this fun, funky dress. Aunt Mernie's awesomeness lives on!
