I saw the show with my 12 year old daughter and we both cried, a lot.
We did not borrow anything but have talked about what we would borrow or if we could donate from our own clothing, what would it be.
I have so many, many clothes. I collect vintage just about everything and my current love is feather hair pieces. I have a photo of my mum and dad when they first met at a wedding. My mum was a bridesmaid and wore a beautiful red velvet dress and a white feathered hair band.
She died on September 13, 2008 and for her funeral I had a black hair band made to wear at her funeral. It was just something I had to do.
I told a friend about it recently and she gave me a white feathered hair band almost exactly like my mum's.
It was an overwhelming and amazing gift and made me cry, which I seem to do so much these days.
My daughter said she would donate a bracelet my dad gave her for xmas this year. She was wearing it when my dad called on Jan 3rd, 2009 with the news that he got married. She tore it off her arm and doesnot want to wear it. She would love to give it a new story and we are working on a project together.
I have urged so many people to see this show and hope it means as much to them as it did to us.
