So what did I do? I wore a dress!
Yeah, baby! Groovy! I'm wearing my newly-acquired orange shoes, my favourite black dress, Mom's 1960s vintage necklace and Dad's 1960s vintage scarf (I believe he wore it as an ascot when he was in a dance band back in the mid-60s).
The shoes are very "toe-y" and I have long skinny toes, so I felt a bit weird - my own issue, I know. The necklace is so cool. I love the glass beads; they are semi-transparent and kind of milky in places. But the scarf is the star (I'm wearing it in my hair with the ends hanging down the back).
When I posted the picture of me in Mom's wedding dress here, I wished I'd had a picture of Mom and Dad in their wedding finery. Mom gave me one of hers:
Hard to believe it's the same dress! The photographer spread the train out so that it looked like a full skirt. I look a lot like my mom...but I also look a lot like my dad ("ooo-wee-ooo, he looks just like Buddy Holly").
