Another “Thank You, Erin,” Blog – Or The Effect of Your Behavior on the Dress You’re Wearing

From the author of my favorite website,, by Erin McKean, who has compiled a book of her wonderful blog posts entitled, The Secret Lives of Dresses.…

“Crying!  That’s one of the worst things you can do in a dress, you know.  Every time you cry in a dress you grind sadness right into it, deep down into the fabric, and it never comes out.  Laughing in a dress – now that’s good.  The laughter lodges between the warp and welt in little bubbles, like champagne.  And kissing, kissing in a dress sets up a kind of vibration in the fabric that keeps wobbling there forever.   But crying, even the drip-drip, silent kind, that just grimes a dress up….”    The Secret Lives of Dresses, vol 6.
