1930s fete


the birthday shindig of a fabulous london lady is tonight. and it's themed! though most of my stateside buddies hate themed parties, i'm all for them--not in the least because i love fashion history. tonight's details: 30s attire, bathtub gin in teacups. while i love the era's glam--my wedding dress was modern early 30s & the wedding took place in one of the first silent film studios in the US--for this occassion i've decided on something a bit more comfortable. the plan: channel one of the above looks (katharine hepburn is at the top!). so far, i haven't been able to find any pants quite as high or wasp-wasited, but if all else fails i have a pair that might do (a recovering gal should keep her goals in check, i guess. even if it is a dress-up party). so for now, let's just hope i feel well enough to go!
