Over the weekend, Jesse and I met some friends for a fun filled night of bowling. I love bowling, although I not very good it at. I think what intrigues me the most is how "old fashioned" it is. Often times, the bowling shoes you rent have a vintage feel to them and many of the allies around here haven't done much to update their interiors.
This was my inspiration for my outfit that evening; my Grandma is on the right. I thought bowling in a dress would be much harder than it looked, but it actually turned out to be not too different from bowling in pants.
When I was in middle school, my Grandma gave me her old bowling ball and shoes set. In the late 40s she was on a bowling league (pictured above) and had hung onto her ball and shoes for all those years. Her ball is engraved with her name on it, which is my middle name. Sometime soon, I would love to get my name engraved above hers.

P.S. This dress is going to be going up for sale in my etsy soon. This weekend was the last time for me to wear it...there's only so much a belt can do to cinch a waist.
