Last night, I was invited to a party at a local vintage lady's house. The theme was 1939. I don't know how "1939" my outfit was but after trying on over a dozen dresses, this was the one that I really loved. The party was absolutely fantastic! Our hostesses home was built in the late 20s and all of her furniture, home decor and dishes were right out of the 30s. We listened to 1930s music, ate 1930s party food and the guests were all kinds of people- many teachers, historians and eccentrics all gathered to enjoy good company, fabulous fashion and a step back in time. Sadly, my phone died shortly after arrival so I wasn't able to document a single thing but some things are best left to the memory and experience.
I tried a new hairstyle, using my normal willy-nilly pin curl set as the base. I curled, twisted and pinned it here and there until I liked it. If I can achieve this look again, I'll post a tutorial for you!
I also wore 1940s silver souvenir brooches, one from great grandma Alma and the other from great great grandma Florence, while they were in Hawaii.
On a side note, its time to order a new remote for my camera. I used the silly 10 second timer for these and as you can see, it didn't turn out very well! It may be time for my husband to return to his post of official blog photographer.
Thank you to S. for inviting me to her beautiful party and to the great new friends for their fascinating stories and company.
