Yikes! I have been missing in action once again. I'll get to that tomorrow for Fashion Friday... I promise!
For today, I just wanted to share a few pictures and some good news. I was selected for the 1940's Starlet Competition for the 1940's Christmas Ball. Not only did I make top ten but so did my girlfriend Tre, who probably has more pictures on this blog than I do.

A lot of you are probably asking yourself, what the heck is the 1940's Christmas Ball. "It is a fabulous 1940’s & 1950’s holiday party that will bring back all the warmth & nostalgia of a more simple time! Experience an enchanting evening of dancing w/ your sweetheart (or meet one!), amidst WWII planes, vehicles and artifacts, movie set lights & props, re-enactors, sleighs, Christmas trees, a canopy of lights & The Hot Tomatoes--one of the most sought after big bands!
Enjoy re-enactments from the timeless movie, “White Christmas,” watch Bing, Danny and Haynes Sisters sing “Snow,” or visit Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future! Listen to Bing Crosby and The Andrews Sisters sing with our Big Band! Get ready for our Pearl Harbor Tribute with Polynesian Fiafia!"
I went last year and wore a gorgeous red taffeta and chiffon 1950's prom dress. I did feel a little out of place because the majority of attendees were in 1940's attire.

So this year, I decided to go with a 1930's or 1940's dress. I have hopes of sewing my own dress for the competition from a 1940's pattern but we will see how that all pans out. If it doesn't, that will be fine because I have a truly spectacular back up outfit. By backup, I mean I was going to wear it as my first choice if I didn't make top ten in the starlet competition. For that matter, I still might.

|So wrong and yet so right.|
Anyway, I hope you are all having a wonderful day. See you all tomorrow for Fashion Friday... you'll finally find out what in the world I have been up to now.
