The event came and went. It was fun (but honestly, automobiles really aren't my thing,) although I do think the vehicles of the late 19th century and early 20th century had so much panache.
I had stopped at a few vintage/consignment stores looking for something of the 20s flapper variety, but gave up before finding the dream outfit. Interestingly enough, I was at Kohls to buy a shirt for my son, when I saw this dress hanging on the end of the clearance rack (for 90% off - $7.80, not even kidding.) I loved the color and was absolutely surprised to find that I actually. like. the. dress. It is actually sleeveless and with my preference for sleeves I created a cap sleeve pattern...........and was impressed by my resourcefulness as well as my symmetrical abilities :) I checked the accessories next and found a fun Vera Wang necklace (again, on sale $8.40,) and my search for the dress ended (though don't think this is the end of it - I will find my flapper dress!)
Of course I forgot my camera, but I convinced the Mister to take some oufit shots.
The necklace had a "ribbon-tie" closure. Not sure I liked that.....
This is the jacket I would have worn.....if it hadn't been 83 degrees!
I just added this jacket because I loved the blue and yellow contrast!
My hair stylist had shown me how to create a "bob" effect. I didn't pull it off very well, but I actually liked how it turned out! I love these shoes - they are my favorite, and I don't think I will ever let them go.
