I stood upstairs in Sarah's and swore to my father that if he got that dress for me, I would most definitely wear it again someday when I got married. It was Vera Wang, and it was perfect! The top of the dress was covered in sequins that caught the light in the best possible way. The skirt was A-line with buttons and the most beautiful bow in the back. It was almost like the outline of a bow, and it draped perfectly. I felt like the belle of the ball the night that I made my debut more than 15 years ago, but not too surprisingly when the time came to pick out a wedding dress, my 28-year-old self felt that my debutante dress was too youthful. In a nutshell, I was crazy! Don't get me wrong, I love my wedding dress, too, but when we pulled out my deb dress for Claudia to try on, I was blown away all over again by that dress. I guess you could say that it is vintage Vera Wang now, but it is still just as beautiful, and in my opinion, the most beautiful dress at the ball all over again!
