With all these wedding gowns being given to Saucy for overhauling, upcycling and photo-shooting, she had yet to truly attempt a "trash the dress" shoot until last weekend.
JWOWW had the idea for a dress-in-the mud shoot and she was very enthusiastic, very game to try it. You know, Loopy would have none of it. There's little to no chance she would roll in the mud for pictures. JWOWW on the other hand, is very willing to try anything once.
Still, Saucy couldn't envision needlessly trashing a wedding gown... until she remembered the one Loopy wore on the beach a long time ago. It was already trashed before it came this way. The entire backside of the skirt was shredded to pieces. How did that come to be, Saucy wonders?
Nevermind, the dress sprang into action one more time. This time, it got more trashed than ever before.
The boots were JWOWW's idea. The muddy river bed was Saucy's. They went pretty well together.
Sometimes, you just gotta get dirty.
And may Saucy just say... in a melancholy way... as the girls are entering their senior year of high school. They have grown up so fast. Saucy's little heart aches when she looks at photos of them in ninth grade. My, look how they have grown.
That is one sad, sorry, tired old gown. Those were also some sad, funky old boots. JWOWW's mother wanted her to throw them away... but she got one last stinky wear out of them.

And at the end of it all... JWOWW hopped into the river. And then the damned gown came clean. Who knew that would happen? Now what will become of it? This was supposed to be its very last stand. Saucy wanted nothing more to do with that gown, ever again.
And yes... in case you were wondering... Saucy forgot to pack towels. Nice work. JWOWW walked back to the house from the riverbank. She and Mayhem even stopped for a little splash in a park fountain along the way.
Saucy would have dearly lurrved to have her camera on hand for that, too. Damn. Next time, dress. Next time.
