Some people think I’m crazy to wear the charity store’s wedding dress, but nothing is more perfect than this. Even my jewelry is old. This pearl belongs to my mother. Wedding rings, engagement rings are the belongings of my grandmother and George’s grandmother”, Becky McMitchell shared.
She entered the hall with second-hand items from head to toe. Becky McMitchell still feels like he’s wearing a million dollar outfit.
