As so many of my clothes stories go, I saw this dress on a TJ Maxx rack and fell in love. Isn’t that how most love stories begin? 😉
But most of my dresses do not go through such a crazy concert like this one. Last May, the SUNY college down the street from my house was hosting their usual pre-finals Spring Fling. Matt and Kim were going to be playing and with free admissions, you know I had to be there. It was my first college concert and I wanted to look really cool. So I wore this dress with fishnet stockings and my brown, suede heels. And Post-concert-Olivia would have smacked Pre-Concert-Olivia for her outfit choice. Because that night I endured falling down in a CRAZY mosh pit, getting on someone’s shoulders, and torrential down pouring rain. By the time I left the campus that night, my fishnets were torn and I was covered in mud. I even had to go about cleaning my muddy shoes with a toothbrush the next day.
Despite the crazy night, I had the time of my life. It was so much fun to dance with my friends in the rain and to listen to one of my favorite bands. And whenever I wear this dress, it brings back such great memories.
