There once was a little girl who loved Barbie dolls, dress up, and the color pink.  She was frequently found in poufy dresses and sparkly little heels, pirouetting away with a Barbie or two over her shoulder and scattered clothing in her wake. She dressed her Barbies in crazy creations, she dressed herself in over-the-top wear; heck, she even put her grandpa in some pretty outlandish get-ups!

Old habits die hard, they say. Well, so it was for the little girl. Dress-up became more than just play time. It became a hobby, a passion, a pure enjoyment in seeing that perfect dress at the mall that looked exactly as she’d dreamed. And although most other little girls let their dreams of becoming princesses go-- she simply modernized hers. She's not fully grown up, though. She’s halfway there: awkwardly 5’8” and still trying to totter around in a pair of real heels (turns out those dress-up heels are nothing like the ones in the REAL world).  She’s learning to embrace that awkwardness and express herself through fashion like that little girl of long ago.

Rory’s 18 short years have been sweet, and she hopes to someday grow up to become a variation of the girl she’s been through every phase, dress-up or dressed up, of her life.

  1. I love your story.
    May I say, you still have plenty of time to grow & mature in to the woman you want/wish to be. You sound somewhat like me. I was 5'11 by the time I was in the 10th grade. Talk about awkward & insecure. It was challenging to find clothes at the mall so many times my mother had my clothing made. That was after she got tired of me having to buy boy jeans so they would be long enough. Now that I'm an old lady at 34yrs old, I look back & think how lucky I was to have been gifted such height & body structure. My body was made for ballet & so I succeeded at it. Though I didn't want to be professional, I danced 5 days a week & then 3 days a week once in college. These days, I'm more secure in myself than ever! You too will look back one day & realize..... every step was a lesson learned that projected me to where I am today.

    You're stunning.
