PINK and BLACK - the final dresses. Palm Springs Frank Sinatra Event


A few words before I spam you with photos......... I caught the eye of a few photographers, one being for the local entertainment magazine - and the other one working for the L.A. Times (exciting, right?!!!) . I was so EXCITED to be photographed for these publications, that I didn't focus on having my photo taken with my own camera. And honestly, I had  hoped I would have received a few of the photo copies by now.......but anyways.  

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.

I felt a bit like a stewardess - but this dress was WAY FUN, and quite the attention getter. I used the same purse and shoes from the pink dress ensemble. Brande outfitted me with the box hat.  Pearl studs and black tights (with black hot shorts) finished the outfit.



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.


My mad photography skills in Frank Sinatra's bedroom via his mirrored closet door (of course he has a giant mirrored closet door that runs parallel to the bed - he's F.S!)
 So for now.... I will say this is the last post on this event until I can track down my photos in the California publications.

Thank you so much for the warm and supportive comments. This truly was an amazing event - and it goes to show you that vintage clothes can still be modern.
