Learning to Love You More, Assignment 55I bought this dress at a thrift store in Great Bend, Kansas for $5. I wore it often in Lawrence, KS, a liberal college town where a sense of irony in dress was appreciated. One night in particular I went to see Quintron (one of my favorite bands at the time) play at a small club, and had the dress signed by Miss Pussycat of Quintron.

Later that night I was crossing the street in my eye-catching lamé when my now-husband said to his then-girlfriend: "She looks like a princess."

Highly recommend the book.

    This looks like a dress that Karen O from Yeah Yeah Yeahs would have worn a couple of years ago!
