I’ve been wondering when exactly I got my frequently worn leopard Diane von Furstenberg dress. Last year, when the photo below was taken, I figured that I bought the dress between 2000 and 2003.
Good guess! While transferring files off an old computer, I found this photo from 2002.
I had worn the dress to my gorgeous sister’s wedding rehearsal dinner the same night the photo was taken; I suspect the DVF was new at the time. The dress has held up wonderfully, but the Ralph Lauren leopard-print shower curtain is long gone. Too bad! It was such a good backdrop. The “wild cat’s paw” pose reminds me of Lady Gaga‘s monster-paw gesture and since I’m getting perturbed by studying a nine-year-old photo too closely (youth is wasted on the young), I’m going to distract myself with some Gaga right now.
