Cassie shares a love of vintage clothing with her mom and grandma Dottie. Perhaps it stems from when Cassie was a little girl and her grandma gave her a vintage prom dress she could use for playing dress-up. But it was far too pretty for that, so Cassie stored it away in her closet for a later date.
The dress was a beautiful cream-colored prom dress her grandma wore to her junior prom in the late 1950s.
Finally, a special day arrived in Cassie’s life — her high school graduation — and she knew just which dress she was going to wear.
But Cassie wanted to keep her choice of dress a secret from grandma.
Cassie only revealed to her family about her plans and never let on to her grandma, even up to the very day of her graduation.
Dottie was getting frustrated that she somehow was never able to see what dress Cassie had planned to wear. Pick an excuse and Cassie and her family had used it.
The pressure was mounting.
When the day of Cassie’s graduation arrived, it was time to reveal that secret!
Cassie walked down the stairs of her deck as her grandma and grandpa waited outside on the lawn. Dottie could hardly stand the anticipation and covered her eyes as she shook with anticipation.
When she opened her eyes, there was Cassie all dressed up in her grandmother’s prom dress from the ’50s.
Things became emotional quickly. Tears rolled and hugs were had. There was no doubt as to how much her grandma loved what she saw.
It brought back a lot of happy memories.
When Dottie saw what her granddaughter was wearing, we can only imagine a flood of memories and sense of pride, love, and honor filled her soul.
Cassie’s aunt, who shared a video of the surprise on YouTube, wrote in the description: “Needless to say, there were lots of tears from everyone!”
