|The pink dress was so tight in the rib cage I had to breath shallow while sitting. By the end of the gala, the soft chiffon overlay was beginning to shred. Unfortunately, this is a 1-time wear dress.|
The images of the pink dress and the after hours dress are very limited as my time was spent posing for other photographers. Seriously, no BS! This level of attention is a NEW thing for me, and I am not bragging by any means. It was just one of those events where I was at the right place at the right time -and happened to look the part.
|Mr. C 'borrowed' the Jack Daniels bottle from Frank Sinatra's house and passed it around the the other gentlemen at the event. He was his own celebrity for the evening, as he channeled the great singer.|
|Not the best photo - but it showcases my scandalous red lipstick. It the new gloss by Victoria's Secret.|
Palm Springs is a wonderful city that seemed like a natural fit for vintage clothing. Unfortunately, I was the ONLY one wearing recycled clothing. As impressed as I was with my vintage finds and bargains, I learned that others simply DO NOT CARE that my clothes were from the thrift store. If anything, I would have been better off not saying anything about my $0.50 dress as it seemed to take-away from the allure of the evening.
