Tomorrow night we ring in a new decade. For me, this means a lot. The past decade was difficult to say the least and though it started off looking promising-it became more challenging and overwhelming. This past year has been the biggest hurdle of them all and I am ready to put it to rest. I have been doing some serious soul searching and am ready for change and improvement in all aspects of my life. 2010 marks that change. I have started with taking tomorrow night off. I usually tend bar somewhere because it is a good money night and this year I was scheduled to work. I found a replacement and took the night off. Working less is on the top of my list of things to change.
SO tomorrow night I want to celebrate-change, friends, the future, self improvement, being positive, things getting better. But what to wear? There is barely a dollar in my bank account let alone my wallet so a new frock is out of the question. Time to dig into the closet and dust off one of my old chestnuts. I thought about it for a while. I have two black vintage gowns from the 1960's. One is plain with an empire waist and dramatic neckline, the other is a column dress and has very ornate woven rust & gold trim. I also bought an ornate gold sequined headpiece from Bambi a few months ago that I have been saving to wear. I tried some combinations on this morning and decided my theme for the night is 1910. Gibson Girl meets silent screen siren, meets the Flapper.
