On Friday my work had a bar-b-que that had a luau theme. I immediately knew what I was going to wear- I’ve had this reproduction 1950s “Tiki” dress in my closet since October and haven’t had an occasion to wear it. Of course I knew that I’d be way overdressed but ask me if I care!
I LOVE this dress. It does all the right things for me. I swear, there’s some SERIOUS rigging in this thing that ah-hem, emphasizes certain attributes while slimming and whittling others. This dress works MAGIC on my figure! I got a lot of compliments and one person said I reminded them of Jessica Rabbit! Oh-kay . . . compliment? Not so sure.
As you can see my hair fell a little flat. This is what it looked like when I left the house.
As you can see, I wore something a little less dramatic to work until it was time to change for the luau 🙂 The bar-b-que was fun; beats working all afternoon, that’s for sure! It was a great way to kick off the weekend.
Also last night the hubby and I went to see our favorite band, The Avett Brothers. It was an amazing, amazing show. The opening act, Langhorne Slim, was really good as well. So good we bought their album after the show and the band was there signing records! We were able to meet them and they signed it for us. I wished we could have met the Avetts!! I haven’t been this excited about a band since I was a teenager. If you haven’t yet checked them out, do yourself a favor and do so.
In school news, I just finished an assignment that I’ve been working on for 12 hours straight! Yikes. I plan to spend tomorrow learning to use Norma (my 1938 Singer 201-2). Enjoy the rest of your weekend- I know I will!
