This weekend, the hubby and I threw a going away party since we are soon to depart from Ohio for the sunny shores of Florida. It was a great time to hang out with friends especially some who we don't get to see very often. We set up a background and lights for selfies and I just had to have a few outfit pictures.
And what could be more appropriate for hosting a party than a dress that screams 1950s hostess! Especially since this is not a dress that I get to wear very often. I love that it is Christmas-y without being too Christmas-y but it's silk so I have to be careful when I wear it.
If you are a long time follower, you may remember this dress from my last visit to Costume College (which is a costuming conference, not an accredited university) when a few of us made matching/not matching dresses from this fab silk taffeta that we scored in the Garment District in LA. We each picked a time period and made a dress to wear together.
I, of course, went with 1950s since it's impossible to go wrong with one of my favorite decades. I found a spectacular pattern that even featured green and pink plaid on the cover art so it was meant to be!
Anyways, it was such fun to run around in a plaid silk taffeta party dress which everyone adored. Plus silk just makes fun noises when it moves. :D Must make more silk dresses!
