This daughter gets to wear her dream dress just when her options went nil
Olivia Parker always played with her mom’s prom dress when she was growing up. Her mother, Brande Walker, had bought this dress at a very cheap price back in the day because the store was going out of business. Olivia used to love this dress and it would engulf her completely when she was a kid. She always dreamt of the day when the dress would fit her perfectly.
But it never happened until one particular night when nothing else seemed to be going right for her.
Olivia had picked out a dress for her prom which was similar to the prom dress of her mom. She had always loved her mom’s dress, but it did never fit her right. The dress was always either hanging loose on her or was a little tight for her, so the dress always went back to the closet. Olivia sent the dress she chose to the dry cleaners so that it would be ready by the big day. But she was in for a shock when she went to collect it. The dress had a big dark crease, on the front and it looked as if it was burnt.
Purely dejected, without any alternative dress options and only a few hours left for the dance, she tried to ransack her closet. She removed all the dresses and out came with the dress of her childhood dreams, her mom’s prom dress. She grabbed it, and tried it on. It was probably destiny that the dress fit her perfectly in this moment.
She was so relieved and happy that she started to cry. Seeing her daughter get emotional, her mom also let out a few tears. They both reminisced about old memories. Even Olivia’s friends knew how important and significant that dress was for Olivia. Her best friend knew that Olivia badly wanted to wear it someday. So, even she let out a cry when she saw Olivia step out of the car, wearing the heirloom dress. Even though, her dress did not synchronize with her date’s outfit, the entire significance of wearing it was special.
Every daughter steps into her mom’s footsteps at some point of time. Maybe not just the footsteps, but dresses as well. So for Olivia, this was the night when she became like her mom. Prom night signifies the graduation to the next stage of growing adulthood. It was indeed a special moment and a memorable day for Olivia, who celebrated it with her favorite dress.
