I am now the proud owner of four beautiful vintage dresses, which I picked up at a church rummage sale for $2 per gown. I'm guessing they range in date from the late '50s - early '70s?

This is so going to be my Going-To-See-Phantom-Of-The-Opera-
When-It-Comes-To-Town-Next-Year dress.

Mom thinks I should save this and have it be my actual wedding 
dress. I'm thinking about it. Would it not be cool to say you got married
in a $2 dress?!

I think this is so adorable.

And this one almost has a regency flavor, except for the sleeves.



I was going to say "goodbye", as tomorrow I fly up for a week with [personal profile] savetheolives, but the truth is, you probably won't notice much of a lack of activity. In fact, it's quite likely I'll be posting even more than usual, especially if Interesting Circumstances occur (as they so often do when we're together.)

That red dress is amazing! I love the others too. :-)

Yay just got your email! I'm going to bed now (hehe) but I think that all sounds great and can't wait to see you! :-)

I need that red dress this November for a Mystery Dinner Theatre I'm attending. That's awesome!

Oh, that would be perfect! Wanna borrow it? I could mail it to you. It's lightweight and doesn't wrinkle. :)

Oh wow! How generous! If you didn't mind, I'd pay for shipping. The theme is 70's and I don't own much that would fit into that era. LOL.

When shall I mail it to you? You don't have to pay for my shipping, just mail it back to me. :)

Aw! You're a peach, Marie! Hey, instead of mailing...if we happen to see each other this month because of Lizzi's visit, maybe we can swing a covert operation. ;-)

Oo, I forgot about that! Yes, perhaps we can smuggle it in a brown paper bag or something. :)

If you could come up while Lizzi's here I would love to take you all to the coffee shop we never got to during Julia's visit. :)

Wow, nice!!! I love the last one especially, but I like them all. :-)

Are you going to see PotO?? ::is jealous:: I wanted to see it when I was in London, but unfortunately, the seats were bad and the pound too steep. :-P

Have a great trip, Marie! I look forward to seeing both your and Hannah's posts! And enjoy your flight reading. ;-) LOL

I'm hoping to, yeah. It's coming to Tulsa about a year from now, I think, and the Arts and Humanities board (which I'm now on) is hoping to get enough people together to go and get discount tickets. :D

I will. Mwahaha!

Those dresses are lovely! My favorite is the last one - sooo pretty! How cool that you got such a fantastic deal!

That would make a charming wedding dress!

As I am short, I have found that most wedding styles are actually made for tall people. Short people tend to disappear in the ruffles and beads. :-P
