The title of this post is so douchey, I'm sorry. I wore this outfit to a gallery recently. My husband’s robot art was showing for a few hours at the Burchfield Penney, along with several other local artists. A band played, and spoken word pieces were performed. I have never seen so many fashionable Buffalonians in one place; I kinda wish I had taken some snaps of the other attendees! Besides that, it was a wonderful event and the gallery was gorgeous. Dave was pretty excited to have his work shown there (I love this picture; he's so cute and happy):
It was really a gorgeous set-up:
Let me tell you about this dress. It belonged to my mother in the 60s. My grandmother sewed it for her high school cotillion (either sophomore or junior year). It fits me perfectly, and came into my life exactly when I was craving a cream-colored lace dress over the summer, when Francesca kept showing all her romantically pretty 60s and 70s lace dress finds on her blog. I got the fever for lace dresses pretty bad.
One of the docents gave me a really nice compliment on my purse, which made me so happy. I respect a docent's taste! I'm having trouble dating the bag though, anyone know its era?
I really love the pattern and colors, especially those graceful gazelles!
Thank you so much for reading; I really do appreciate everyone who stops by this blog. <3
