Kate & I wore these matching dresses out to dinner to celebrate the day we met 15 years ago on June 4th. I loved the gorgeous color of the coral-y pink lace pattern with the black background. I'd say it fit true to size as I wore a 22/24 & it was a bit snug on me as I normally wear a 26/28. I thought this was a fun dress to have at the same time...I really liked it. This is my first Poppy & Bloom dress...the design & fabric were great. My only complaint is that it snagged really easily, but anything lace & lace-like will do that. I should have worn black shoes...what was I thinking?!
Cute girlies! Kate & I met in an online group called Plus Goths. We were smitten with each other & arranged to meet in person in Chicago where she lived at the time. I thought she was the prettiest girlie I'd ever seen. We dated for a while, but are now best girlies for life & I love her with all my girlie heart. We get along better now than we ever did way back then. It was soooo long ago that our first photos together were taken with a non-digital camera & I don't have them scanned it, so here are some pictures of pictures... 
The top photo is Halloween 1999 & we were dressed for a wake at a friend of a friend's house. The bottom picture is New Year's Eve 1999. 
Dinner at Restaurant Muramoto. First course...Rainbow Roll & Dragon Roll, Ceviche, & Seaweed Salad...
Followed by Poke & Scallop...
After dinner we were going to drink a bottle of wine Kate got us from 1999, but she wasn't feeling well, so we have to drink that at a later date. 
Each of our views at dinner, close-ups of our necklaces. 
Kate got me this necklace as a New Year's Eve present several years ago from a seller on etsy, love, I need to find more dresses to wear it with! 


  1. Happy girlieversary! You both look so pretty in the pink lace dresses. And I love both of your necklaces! :-)
