It's been a very swell week indeed...
mostly because of the absolutely marvelous and swank vintage event at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Miss Lori and I had a girls' night out together, put on our best duds, and headed downtown to Minnesota's most fabulous museum. Loved strolling the galleries together perusing fine art -- and strolling the lobby together perusing fine fashion!
I wore my vintage green cocktail dress and layered a tulle petticoat over to get that old Hollywood glamour -- and then threw on some seamed stocking and pearls 'cause a girl just has to be authentic :) The most fun thing ever was doing my hair 50s style...especially because it gave me the opportunity to use some pearl combs that belonged to my grandma.
Then Lori and I hit up the photo booth and grabbed some of the fun vintage props (thanks to our blogging friends over at Two Birds!!!)...definitely got a few winning photos in this sequence!!!
Aaaand even more fun...we got to meet up with a couple other Minnesota bloggers and fashionistas (visit my new friend Erin at her blog, Babes in Thriftland)!!! I'm always a nervous wreck meeting fellow style bloggers for the first time -- and when I'm nervous, I gab my tongue to pieces-- but these girls were so sweet and funny, we really hit it off! Just check those silly photos and happy smiles :) Now we're thinking we just might start up a vintage luncheon club...
And just a quick final shot to show you my hairdo handiwork...of which I am QUITE proud, I must say.
(At risk of sounding totally stuck up -- please believe I'm not -- I just have to share the excitement that I ended up with my picture in a Twin Cities newspaper and an offer to model for a local designer -- totally unexpected and fun!)
