|The original photos|
Read on to see how the adventure unfolded...
So there's this dress I own. It's not a particularly special dress. I bought it on sale from Harbour Town years ago with my Aunt. We bought the same dress. Kinda cute - we have never done that before :) But that's all that's special about it. I wore it a few times when I was a lot smaller. It's Size 16.
In Round 3, I decided I wanted to wear it again, in Sydney (Round 3's finale). I promised that I would wear it. I made a big song and dance blog post about it and everything. Here's the link:
Introducing...The Yellow Dress
I didn't make it. How embarrassing. :) I did end up wearing a Size 16 dress in Sydney! But that was a flukey size.
So I am recommitting to wear this yellow dress, on the Round 4's finale weekend in Brisbane. It's just a casual Summer dress, it's not 'the' finale dress.
But it's a goal I have. To keep me more accountable to my goal and on track, I'm going to upload a photo here each week to show how close I am getting to the zipper doing up :)
Wish me luck! Operation Yellow Dress Mark 2 is on.
