Birds of a feather

 Vintage Silk Jersey Gown with Ostrich Feather cuffs

Vintage Silk Jersey Gown with Ostrich Feather cuffs

This is another amazing gown from the collection, I know it seems odd to photograph this in front of our dilapidated tool shed, but I actually like the juxtaposition.  This gown is so fun, and feels very silly to me, like something Phyllis Diller would have worn. Again, I have no idea where I would wear this, and yet, it is just too great to let go of.  This is I believe the definition of the term "an embarrassment of riches"  It seems so ungainly to complain about having all of these beautiful gowns, and yet, when there are too many to know what to do with, or how to store, it actually does become overwhelming.  That is why I believe this visual archive will be the best thing that I could do.  So that when it does become time to let go, I will still feel that I have some connection, and some way to remember.
