"Love me tender, love me dear
Tell me you are mine
I'll be yours through all the years
Till the end of time"
-- Elvis Presley, Love Me Tender

This outfit is a tribute to my parents on their 46th wedding anniversary. The brooch is actually a bunch of barrettes that my mom wore instead of a veil (she handed them down to me on my wedding day). She wore lace blouse and a mini skirt in lieu of a traditional wedding dress, and my dad was a dapper groom in black and white. I think I did a pretty good job in channelling their wedding photo. Happy anniversary, mom and dad. I love you.
