This was not your traditional costume party. For starters, when my friend Southern Belle knocked at the door, I opened it to see one of these ladies in the flesh:
Southern Belle collects historic clothing, and she also sews her own.
|The green hat is eerily similar to the red one she was wearing! |
|Little Women-esque jacket|
|My favs, the 40's and 50's|
|These actually belonged to her grandma, who eloped in the cream one!|
After admiring the costumes for quite sometime, we were starving. Time for tea!
And then it was time for more dress up!
Look. At. This. Dress.
Ok, I will. This fabric is so beautiful, the picture doesn't do it justice. the dress bodice has boning in it to make you look skinny, and one of the twirliest skirts ever.
|Swing dancing? Nope, just twirling. |
What did you dress up as this year?
