Sometimes I never know where a day is going to take me. Recently, the wife of an acquaintance of my husband's invited me to come along to what was said to be a vintage fashion show and auction going on today. Well, it turns out there was no auction and the "vintage fashion show" involved about six volunteers from a local historic site talking about their costumes, so the only authentic vintage in the room was the 1930s knitwear ensemble I was wearing and the hats from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s worn by other attendees. Ahem! That's okay, it ended up being a rather cute day. Highlights: 1) arriving at the church in a pearly pink Mary Kay cadillac owned by Betty, the lady in the leopard hat below; 2) chatting with some lovely ladies over a spot of high tea. I DO still think that Canada has a serious lack of a thriving vintage scene (I envy you Londoners to the core), but Betty has advised me that I just may end up being in charge of organizing a REAL vintage fashion show for next year. Yikes!
