A Halloween Excuse
I don't really need an excuse for any of my silliness, but a Halloween party gave me extra motivation to pull out the old dress up box. And in this year of my BYB Celebration, why not dress up for the fifties! I'm not really sure who I thought I was, although my sister claimed I was channelling our grandmother who often was seen holding a cigarette and scotch and water. I was probably a mixture of many relatives since everything I wore belonged to family.
The black gloves were my mother's. The glasses belonged to Aunt Ruth. The stole, belt and skirt (with petticoat) belonged to my mother in law. The jewelry came from my other grandmother, "Daw". The hat? I can't remember, but it was family. The martini glass was from my cupboard... and the cigarette? I bought a pack of "Lucky Cigarettes" from the candy store!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
