There was a lot of goofing off going on while I set up the tripod. :-)
We certainly attracted a lot of attention and people asked us if we were in the play at the opera house (which happened to be Cinderella... not sure where they made the connection between that and girls dressed up in clothes from the 50's...)
Lily & Gretel brought an assortment of hats, and it worked out perfectly that there was a hat that matched each of our dresses! I have now decided that a hat... or two... or three... will be on my to-buy-soon list.
We were pretty adorable, if I do say so myself! :-)
Speaking of adorable! Tara and Lily struck this pose and Gretel just stood there looking at them like they were a couple of goofs.
You've seen this one already, but I am posting it without the vintage editing... I'm not sure which I like better. Look at that amazing stripe detailing on Lily's dress!! (that girl is an INCREDIBLE seamstress! Check out her blog!).
We came up with an idea of doing this every time we get together, but go back a decade each time. So next would be 1940's, then 30's, 20's and so on... though I find the 50's and 40's so cute that I'm not sure I'd want to give them up to wear 20's flapper outfits... :-)
I hope you enjoyed our little travel back in time. If we do it again I'll be sure to post again! :-) Thanks for all the fun, Lily & Gretel... this definitely ranks up there in the top funnest (I know, that's not a word!) days I've ever had!
