Feathered Hat

As I mentioned in my last post, I made a last minute change to my costume for the costume night at the Redford. I decided I wanted to wear this dress so I would get a chance to wear these heels and hat, both purchased over the summer. I also felt that the green matched better with my vintage mink stole than the black suit. I didn't take any pictures of myself with the mink on, but its a traditional brown one. If I had kept the blonde mink that I got with the other, I would have probably worn the suit again. Anyways, I love the combination of brown and green, so I was pleased with my outfit. My friend and I were pretty much the only ones who dressed up, but we both had a blast and got many compliments as well!!

The other picture is of the inside of the theatre, right outside of the actual seating and between the lobby. The lobby is closed off by big red doors. The lighting fixture came from Europe and is period but not original to the building. There are three of them hanging and are quite lovely!

As I am writing this post, my finds from the really great estate sale at the historic home are soaking in the laundry tub. I hope to have pictures up soon!!
