Hello Blogland!!! I’m doing a Saturday nite post for Sheila at Ephemera’s “Break Out Your Party Dress” birthday celebration!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHEILA!!!!!
I really have no fancy party clothes (just don’t have the lifestyle I guess!!) I decided to break out the 70’s vintage dress I thrifted this summer for the occasion. Unfortunately, even after hand washing and much effort-there are noticeable stains on the front bodice so the dress will become a skirt after tonite! Thankfully you can’t see them in the picture but they are really obvious in real life. Which is a bummer!!
A little more info on the purse. It was only $2 and had the original hang tag in the pocket with the date 10/8/73 written on it and the store it was brought in (Eyerly’s). I did a little googling about this brand.
Evidently I got a STEAL. John Romain were the “it” bags of the 60’s and early 70’s. They are still highly collectible and can cost a fortune on Ebay. Mine is in excellent condition and as it still has its numbered hangtag it’s even more collectible.
MrBill and KaeKae also got in party mode. I pulled out MrBill’s Tshirt and dressed him up for a picture. He was less than thrilled and refused to even walk in it!!!
Her divaness has a new dress for fall that of course she was more than willing to prance around in! It has polka dots and candy corns on it!
Below is my weekend run around outfit. I also have the same top in light blue. The jeans are my weekend favorite ones–they have to be maybe 15 years old and are so comfy! I’m wearing a black newsboy cap.
I dropped my sewing machine off at Wilson’s Quilt Shop for a tune-up. It’ll be about two weeks before I get it back. They do all of the repairs/etc. on-site instead of shipping them out. I’m going through withdrawal!!! LOLOLOL-not like I don’t have a million other projects to do!
Everyone have a wonderful weekend and I’ll chat with you tomorrow!!!
