Auld Lang Syne 1945

Saturday, December 31, 2011


Since I'm not much of a party girl (and I have two babies) I won't be going out for the New Year. We're all safe at home, tucked in our beds. I have my crochet hook in one hand and a glass of bubbly moscato in the other. Pj and I are watching a Star Trek marathon on Netflix cause that's how we like to party!

I still got to play dress up, though! Just for fun, I put on this gorgeous pink 1940's dress, which I've had for over a year and have not worn, even once! It has the most beautiful lace all down the front with pearl and rhinestones at the neckline. It came with the original belt and is in pristine shape. I really must find an excuse to wear it in public.


I hope that all of you have a very happy New Year's eve, get home safely and are blessed with no hangover tomorrow morning. See you in 2012, darlings!

  2. You look fantastic, of course. I dressed up with rolls, pretty dress, makeup and even *shoes* though we had a quiet, enjoyable evening at home.

  12. That is one hellofa dress! I'm in love with the lace. Wherever did you find it? We watched old episodes of the shield until midnight, then climbed the hill behind our house to watch about 50 local firework shows all at once; me with champagne in hand, and my husband puffing on a fragrant pipe. It was heaven.

  19. Hi gorgeous gal, that colour looks positively enchanting on you - as if it was tailor made for your skin tone and hair colour. What a beautiful sartorial note to wrap the blogging year off with here.

    Oodles of hugs & joyful Tuesday wishes,
    Jessica
