The inspiration for this image came from a dream I had in which I was planning for my own wedding. As I looked into my dream-closet, I found all but a wedding dress: I found a baptismal gown, a communion dress, a quinceanera gown (like a sweet sixteen/coming of age for Hispanic girls when they're 15), and a graduation gown (all girl Catholic school...we graduated in white dresses instead of cap and gown). So basically, my life has been one white dress after another...I shed white dresses like a snake shedding it's skin. After one came off, another one came on. So I went with that.
