On a day sometime in February Amelia and I went to the U-District. We were browsing as usual, visiting all of the vintage stores. I never find anything there because I love (and purchase) mostly pre-1950s garments. At the first store we went into, Valley of Roses, I found a late 1930s dress with embroidery. It was two inches too small in the waist but I tried it on anyway and it fit!
The shop owner, Mary wanted to take mine and Amelia's photo for the store's Facebook. What she took resulted in some of the best photos of me and Amelia together that anyone's ever taken.
