The town we grew up in has been renovating it's old downtown theatre for years now. It was originally established in 1937, but was shut down a few years ago. Anyway, it's now officially done and tonight was a street party in it's honor. They blocked off the surrounding area, built a little festival, and had old movies such as "Swing Time," "The Wizard of Oz," and "Godzilla" playing on the streets. There was even music and some swing dancing!
A few people dressed up for the occasion. Naturally, we did. Carpe diem!
This is the back detailing of a dress I found at The Hip Zipper, in Nashville, on the day I blogged about a while ago. I didn't buy it then, but we went back a few weeks ago, when Amanda and my dad's girlfriend convinced me to try it on. It's loose, but seriously, what a trap! I already loved it!
Amanda hemmed it a bit (thanks A-man) and I wore it with my favorite little velvet bag and some short-heeled 40's shoes I acquired through Etsy a couple years ago.
Amanda wore a silk dress she borrowed from the shop.
Her shoes are vintage Ferragamo. The bag was found at Goodwill, the other day. It's not old enough to fit the attire, but this wasn't a costume party.
Or ...who am I kidding?
