Imagine if you will...
A beautiful little girl's party dress, worn in 1786 by Princess Marie Therese, daughter to Marie Antoinette. The feisty little princess, after some boring royal affaire, runs outside to the gardens and throwing off her fancy dress, goes for a swim in a pond, leaving the garment royale under a tree... Where a time/space wormhole opens just long enough to swallow up the dress, sending it through time to another tree, in front of my apartment, early one morning last week, when I found it.
That's the only explanation I can think of.
Oui, I'm keeping it.
Until next time... Miss Absinthe
