Today was quite a busy day. My mom invited over my great aunt and cousin to visit with my Grandma and my mom and I. I'll post more about this visit tomorrow, including some vintage photos of my Grandma and her sister. After they went home, I made my way over to Mother Fletchers. I had liked a dress there when I traded for the one I wore yesterday, however I didn't get it. One I got home I realized it matched my new wedges so well that I had to go back and get it. So, I did; luckily it was still there!!
One I got home, I got ready to go to the movies to see Julie and Julia. I have been dying to see this film since I saw the trailers months back. Well, about 45 minutes into the movie, the theater went pitch black and the projector stopped. After about 15 minutes of waiting around not knowing what was going on, a staff member came and told us the power went out, there was a tornado warning and that the power wasn't going to come back on and we could pick up vouchers on the way out. I was extremely bummed!! The movie was going soooooo well. The costumes for the Julia Child part were amazing, done by Anne Roth, (which is no surprise as to why they are sooo good). The dresses, suits, and hats were to die for!!! Needless to say, I can't wait for my class to get out tomorrow, because my mom and I have a date to see the rest of the film!!!
Above is my outfit from today. I decided to start doing these posts because I have been inspired by so many other bloggers and their daily outfit posts. I love to see other vintage outfits, so I thought I would share mine. Today I put on a light-weight 40's house dress and paired it with a little sweater. I find myself wearing these little flats that are really tennis shoes. They are super comfy and remind me of a pair that Lucy wears in many episodes of I Love Lucy.
**Please pardon my hair. It was horribly humid outside and my hair style went flat and frizzy**
