apr 16: ezmy as fairy godmother

Like many ladies I know, my prom dress was the first full-length “real dress” I ever owned. The popular colours the year I graduated were maroon and white, both of which make me look like paste, so I went with an unconventional spearmint green. With rhinstone straps. And white shoes (that you can’t see below but trust me, they were awful). Not sure what I was thinking:

Anyway, it was a great dress at the time. And I had a pretty great evening, due in no small part to how awesome I felt in that dress.

So when I heard about Fairy Godmother of Ottawa from momicon, I knew this was something I wanted to be a part of. Because highschool sucks enough without having to worry about not being able to get a pretty dress on the one night highschool might not suck. And I just so happen to have a few dresses kicking around that I really don’t need. A full-length, caffe latte coloured bridesmaid’s dress comes to mind…

The resolution for today then: pack up three dresses and take them to Brown’s to be donated to a very worthy cause. Fairy Godmother Ezmy to the rescue!

Update on previous resolutions: Saturday breakfasts are still going strong. I made apple cinnamon pancakes this morning – oh so good. And the stroller is clean and up for sale. Oh and I researched all of the candidates in our riding, sent a couple of emails to clarify platform positions and now feel ready to vote. Are you ready?

  1. Beautiful picture :) And great idea, thanks for sharing about the Fairy Godmother. I recently wore my highschool formal dress for a murder mystery party and it was hilarious, but I don’t think I’ll be wearing it again.

  2. I managed to find several dresses to donate, including few that I LOVE that don’t fit, and it made me so happy to know they are going to a good home! It’s a nice feeling to share right in our community, and I keep checking their FB group hoping to catch a pic of someone in one of my dresses.

    I just love what this organization is doing, it brings a big smile to my face.
