The Long Goodbye/Moonlight on the Highway
My 5th wedding anniversary is coming up and I can't wait to show & tell you what the mister and I have just booked to mark the momentous occasion next weekend. The only hints I will give are that it involves a 1930s gown, a castle, big band music. Now then, speaking of 30s gowns and weddings, I must admit that, while I really think our little wedding was a wonderful event, If I could do a wedding gown "do over," and resize too-small gowns at will, I would have worn this exceptionally amazing 1930s evening or wedding gown + capelet jacket + belt set, which I have been hoarding for a couple of years now. Alas, it just does not fit me, so, after a loooooong time of hoarding, I'm ready to say goodbye to this exquisiteness and let it go into the shop, so it can go to a new loving home, where it can be worn and enjoyed, perhaps by a 30s-loving bride? In case, you think brides only wore white in the 30s, in my next post, I will show otherwise. Oh, I've called this the "Moonlight on the Highway" gown set because I think of Al Bowlly singing that song whenever I look at it....swoooon!
