Saturday is always the LONG day...we start at breakfast, then soon after lunch...then a movie break...and the dinner...a day full of food, fun, and FASHIONS! |
Breakfast was all about day wear and SUITS (my favorite)...the give-away fashion was the fabulous blue/grey suit with matching coat...LOVE this fashion!
The movie was "For the Love of Mary"...a fun movie with some singing by operatic star Deanna Durbin...and the centerpiece dress was from the movie...
We also had a fun Red, White, and Blue Parade at lunch...as usual Sue really went all out and won first place! Here are the only TWO photos of ME, since Eric took them as I was modeling my fab IU short and my companion was Madra in her equally fab Starlight Canteen outfit Sandra had done for the EDAH event...(maybe I have this mixed up...I am second guessing myself now...I am trying to remember from 2 weeks ago!)
Lunch was devoted to Claire McCardell. Sandra gave a presentation on Claire's history along with the slide show. I was so thrilled...I love her work! I think I bought every outfit that was a recreation of Claire's designs!
Of course, the highlight is always the fabulous evening dresses at dinner! And Sue's amazing ballroom was perfect to display our dolls in their evening finery as well...
And I think we saw a second movie that night,
Call Me Madam", with a gorgeous recreation of one of the ballgowns worn by Vera Ellen. I have had this on DVD since it was first released, so we went to bed instead of watching it...
A long and exhausting day, but nothing but pure fun and fabulousness!
Phew...that was a LOT of photos1
Enjoy...and correct me on the things I got wrong...it's all a blur!
