The dress that never was.
the dress I brought off Etsy. My heart still breaks a little when I look at it, but I just can't reconcile myself to the length. It is too short so the dress and I are not meant to be. I have only recently discovered that I am actually tall. One would think that I might have figured it out years ago, like when I stopped growing for example, but this is not the case. For almost my entire life I have believed myself to be average to short. It wasn't until a month or so ago when a friend looked at me like I was slightly retarded and said "But Vicci, you are quite tall...". Thats when I finally understood why jeans and maxi dresses were never long enough...all these years I thought it was because my generous bum was using up the extra fabric, it now appears that is not the case. I am simply fairly tall. In my defense, I am the oldest of five children, yet all my siblings are taller than me. I have forever been told that I am a midget, and short. Now of course I realise that they are just extra tall! Its funny how you get perceptions about yourself, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. I blame my family and their brainwashing!
