Day 4 in the Dade – I had a breakfast, networking break, lunch, cocktails and dinner to assist with. I think I did a good job of balancing the my two outfits to make sure I was dressed appropriately.

You know your friendship is strong when distance and time stands still no matter life’s curveballs.
I would say the height of my vintage finds was my birthday dress. Most wouldn’t believe that my flapper-esque dress only cost me $14.99 with it’s hand beading. Straight from the racks of the Salvation Army, this amazing dress pictured below once had a longer hem and longer sleeves.
In the end as you can see, I stuck with what I already had and only had to tweak it slightly. This vintage dress gave me LIFE! Like the person who wore it before I’m sure the dress turned heads for her. Today I’m certain you can find a sequin dress in almost every store but the only difference is the work, time and dedication that went into its creation.
Since the present is only “inspired” by the past, we are surely in for half-assed produced clothing….and you wonder why vintage is in such high demand.
Quality is key.

Oh how perfect that would be to just square up and fight it out so that the issue didn’t drag on. The tomboy in me would LIVE for that moment. I’ve had what I’ll call “emotional battles” with female friends that have dragged on and on and in retrospect could have been squashed with a quick one-two punch and then a hug (if a hug is necessary).
Am I the only woman who feels this way of do you think I have some deep-seated aggression? In either case I’m going to sign up for a kickboxing and Muay Thai at the end of May to remain active.
Preparation is key! Ya just never know.
