in a dark and musty corner of the Ajo Thrift Store a dozen years ago.
call it my Scarlett O'hara dress, since I literally cut off the drapery

And then added a tassel - just to be sure and keep that Scarlett O'Hara feeling!
worn this to weddings, parties and also when I was the announcer at a Spring

quite the outfit!
