They say there is no rest for the wicked, but that must be incorrect as I am on holidays, YAY! Two weeks off (paid) work. Have been doing plenty around the house. There is always something to do in a house, even more so when the house is old 🙂 Our house is beautiful, I do love it and I believe we are keepers of history for future generations. As I write this I am listening to a beautiful old Bakelite valve radio, circa 1948, that we bought at an auction this morning, and it sounds fabulous. My apologies, I digress.
Due to the holidays there are no work outfits to list, however yesterday I went to a local vintage fashion event – any excuse to dress up! I even entered a fashion competition; the ladies adult category was ‘Prom Queen’ so I suppose I was a bit brave/ambitious/silly wearing an outfit from a decade other than the 1950s (I wore the 40’s green suit, ‘Love Knots’). Three contestants had that same idea and chose 40’s garb, but the deserving winner was a gorgeous girl in a pink tulle confection, very much befitting a Prom Queen.
The parade was a great experience, as I got the chance to showcase a fabulous and rare outfit, but what really made my day was a lovely elderly lady who approached me to say that I had the outfit just right, and that she should know because she was there. I felt like a winner regardless.
