    This reminds me of the six-word story by Ernest Hemingway. “Baby shoes for sale. Never used.” Really good. Especially the detail of the dress, though. It brings to light perhaps bigger issues. “offwhite” and “hoop”, because hoops I think are rarely used these days. You can tell there’s a story lurking underneath the lines.
