I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date! Oh no, I hope Sares won't be too upset with me. She doesn't know me very well yet...I'm always running a little behind! Better late than never! Oh...and isn't it fashionable to be late?
Is my dress beautiful or what?! I could not find anything in the stores 'special' enough to wear to Sare's costume party, so I had my very good friend Teresa from 'Eclectic Pink Rose' to design and make one for me. She has been sewing a lot lately, making pretty aprons and outfits for herself, so I thought she would do a wonderful job for me on my costume.
That girl can sew! I gave her one of my old prom dresses (from the 1980's) and she took it apart and reassembled it and look what she created! I feel like the belle of the ball! I had to borrow these pretty little satin shoes from my other friend, Nikki from 'The Scarlet Rose Garden'. She is the queen of costumes! She is always dressing up wearing costumes from different movies, etc. Go visit her after the party and see what she wore to a 'Wizard of Oz' museum and you have to see her in her 'Titantic' dress!
I'm a little bit 'shy' to show you my undies...but I thought these bloomers were so cute...and comfy too!
I had a choice of 3 fans to use. Which one do you think that I picked? The light pink one of course. The one in the very back! A lady has to have her fan to give the young men signals about if she wants to dance or not. (or to fan herself if she feels faint)
I had my mom do my hair. I have begged her for this hairstyle ever since I was a little girl! Finally!!! I had to wait until she graduated from beauty school !!! I've always wanted to look like the 'Sunbeam' bread girl ever since I was little! Mom went to a lot of trouble getting my hair this perfect shade of blond! My natural hair is dark brown, almost black. At first it turned a bright shade of RED! Mom really took a lot of time with me, getting it right! She says 'Never again'!! Oh mom, never say never!
