Dress Back

trying to let go of some things

I have lost count of the number of gorgeous formal gowns I own. But the fact is that there are just no formal balls in this town for me to go to. At least certainly not enough for me to justify the number of dresses I'm holding on to. I had hoped to have an opportunity to wear all of them at least once. But it seems like every ball I go to is goth or fetish and so the PVC stuff I own is already adequate for all of those. And all those formal dresses are just taking up way too much room in my already ridiculously overcrowded closet.

It breaks my heart to let them go. But I'm going to try and get myself to weed them out and donate them to The Ruby Room, an organization that provides formal dresses for high school girls that cannot afford to buy a dress for their prom. This process might be easier for me if there is some one else out there that will do it with me. Anyone in Seattle have a dress or two they want to donate?
