A Little Bit of Vintage Glamour

Reason #326 why I love having this blog: I get to hang out with other bloggers (My Style Vita, The Fashion Lush and Yoga in Heels) and get dressed up for events like Whiskey Park’s Vintage Hollywood Glamour evening this past Saturday.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I was going to wear this dress. At the last minute, I completely changed my mind. I totally forgot I had this beautiful Betsey Johnson dress that my cousin gave me and Lar over ten years ago. It has the perfect vintage Hollywood Glamour look:


Betsey Johnson dress • Club Monaco necklace • Kenneth Jay Lane cuff • gloves from a local beauty supply store • BCBG heels • faux fur H&M stole

Apologies for the iPhone camera photos. After I save up for a new computer, I’ll get myself a decent point and shoot. On the other hand, if I used a better camera, my face would look much more shiny in these photos. So the grainy-ness is really a benefit!

Word of advice: don’t wear a fur stole and gloves when attending an indoor event – especially polyester gloves – you’ll start sweating the minute you walk through the door.

My wonderful friend, Lena, and her dashing bf, Sre, made the night even more fun by joining me at Whiskey Park. They pulled their outfits together in a few hours at a couple of local thrift stores. I’m so impressed!

We rounded out the evening by pigging out at Chinese Buddha at 1 a.m. It was wonderful.

Dearest Lar,

I wish you were in town for this event. I bet you would have come up with an amazing outfit – especially if you were able to pull together a prohibition party outfit for less than $30.

Do you remember the Betsey Johnson dress? Isn’t it gorgeous? I’ve kept it all these years because it looks so pretty hanging in my closet.

Also, I get to see you in less than 3 days!!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! Best. Christmas. Present. Ever!

xoxo,

Cath

    Hi CATH!!!!

    Ooolala! You guys all look soo beautiful/dashing. I wish I could have been there with you. I am so impressed you still have that dress from Genn. It IS beautiful and I’ve totally kept clothing that just looks good in my closet (not here in Edi of course because my wardrobe is the width of a small child).

    Two more mornings and then I wake up in Decatur/Atlanta. O. M. GGGGGGGG!!!!

    My favorite thing about Chinese Buddha (keeping in mind the last time I went was literally 2.5 years ago) is the humongous section of the menu that caters to ‘fake meat’!!! It’s awesome! It does have Atlanta’s scariest walk to the bathroom though.

    And (of course) you look gorgeous!! Any more pictures of the event itself? The handsome people drinking heavily? I feel like it was very “Great Gatsby”ish. :)

    I’ll post some pics if they show up on Whiskey Park’s Facebook page.

    I love fake meat! Is that weird?! Chinese Buddha is still as great as it was 2.5 years ago ;)

    Genn, I was wondering if you would remember it! One of the best hand-me-downs ever! Now I just need another excuse to wear it again :)

    Love the gloves! It’s amazing how a simple accessory can add so much glamour to any outfit! (A hat can do the same thing!)
