Well, I finally got some snowy-snowfall pictures the other day! As long as I have to be stuck in this frigid weather I might as well try and get some wintry wonderland photos out of it right? Last Saturday Sean and I got all gussied up and attended a 'Murder Mystery' event at a local museum. The museum is actually a turn of the century home which has been preserved with all of the accoutrements of the day, room to room. You can go tour the house any time, but on this particular evening we got to see a bit of a show. There were actors in each of the rooms which told their side of the story on the night there was a 'murder'. We went through the house listening to each of their testimonies and then had to decide at the end who we thought the killer was. I had a couple of friends who acted in the show so it was even more of a delight. Everybody there thought I was all in costume for the evening-as I expected. No one ever believes I actually just dress this way!
After the murder mystery Sean and I went out to dinner and I had the sweetest guy come up and complement me and he asked to take my picture! Golly goodness I was tickled pink. He said he was in town visiting from L.A. and he just wanted to complement me. That always makes my day when people go out of their way to be nice like that. I always try to randomly complement strangers when I'm out and about too because there's something so genuine about hearing nice words from a stranger. I can say I've never experienced someone wanting my picture before and probably never will again! What a fun evening. :)
Ah, this coat. Dark crimson with the most amazing shape to it. It's like getting wrapped up in a warm blanket of vintage love. It is another coat I received from my grandmother. I'm not sure if this one was hers, or one of my great aunt's, but boy am I lucky to have as many family heirloom pieces as I do.
This is another dress I bought from Aviena, a brick and mortar store in my town which also has an etsy shop. I had to reinforce all of the buttons before wearing it, but it was totally worth it. I can see this dress becoming a staple in my wardrobe, I love everything about it. Perfect sleeve length, perfect collar, spot on length and shape. I could go on. I found these long black gloves in my drawer which have been sitting there for ages. I think I found them at a thrift store years ago. I don't think they are vintage, but they mimic pretty well.
Lastly this hat is one special piece. It is adorned in folds of rich, black velvet with a rhinestone/metal clasp at the side. I adored wearing it. You can wear it to if you like as it is for sale in my Etsy Shop!
Thanks for listening to my ramblings! If you want to know how I did my hair, take a jump to this post for the tutorial!
Have a fabulous day all :)
