You know the anti-graffiti upholstery in trains and buses? Well this dress reminds me of that.
In a deep and dark flea market, when my heart was palpitating like it was nobody's business, I dug up this dress. In hindsight I should have left it there like a buried non-treasure.
But sometimes I get excited and think "YES! This is going to be a winner." And then I get it home and post-purchase euphoria subsides and I think "What the hector was I thinking?!"
So this is it. We made it past $1500 (thank you thank you thank you my kind, generous sponsors!) - and here's my ugly dress.
A friend described it as this, and she's so bang on correctomondo.
All money goes to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.
As there is currently no early detection test, women are usually diagnosed in the late stages of the disease - when the cancer has spread to other organs in the body.
It is important to note that awareness in isolation of funded research will not save a life and that a pap smear DOES NOT detect ovarian cancer.
Please sponsor me today! (Or tomorrow is great too. Or the next day.)
