Caped Crusader

My friend recently gave a piano recital as she was graduating from honours in music. It was held at a beautiful church, and I took it as a chance to bust out an equally gorgeous caped dress (that may have been a little too fancy for your everyday walk to the shops...) I cannot even begin to describe how much I love 60s dresses with capes. Long, chiffon strips that float about when you walk, that snap and curl in the wind - nothing is more glamorous! I snagged this dress from fellow blogger Bombshell Bettie's etsy store. She's a lovely lady, and has the best baby clothes ever, so go check her out!

The gentleman hosting the evening later thanked my friend for encouraging us all to dress to the nines - he said it reminded him of how people used to treat recitals and operas as special occasions worthy of a new dress or coat. Having been to a ballet only last year where all the attendees were in jeans, I completely agree! I want to wear a ballgown outside of prom. I want to wear hats outside of the Melbourne Cup. We don't get as many chances to really dress up nowadays, so we should take them where we can get them!

My Revlon Fire and Ice lipstick giveaway drawing has been delayed somewhat due to technical difficulties - I cannot get blogger to work with the ipad and it has set me back several planned posts. Entries will be accepted until at least the end of the month when I can get this sorted!
