• 1920s Silk Frock •

Earlier this year a local Art Deco theatre had their 90th anniversary celebration that my mom and I were able to attend.  It was an absolute blast, and it truly felt like you were right back in 1928!  I got to wear my true vintage '20s dress for the first time, which was also super fun!

I found this dress on Ebay under "rockabilly," "boho," "hippy," "70s," and a bunch of other...less desirable (in my opinion) tags, but just as I suspected from the pictures, it turned out to be a SILK 1920s dress in nearly perfect condition.  In my size!!!!  To say I was excited would be a massive understatement. 

It's interesting to see the construction of the dress - the strip of binding and fabric at the "waist" of the dress is actually a piece that was added after the dress was made.  The dress also features a 12" hem, which is just incredible.

One of my dear church friends, who is nearly 80, gave me this brooch for my birthday last year, and it was her mother-in-law's mother's!  That goes back a few years for sure!  I hadn't had a chance to wear it yet, so it made a very special, fun addition to this outfit. 

There was a fabulous '20s roadster parked in front of the theatre, so we took the opportunity to get a photo with it!  :) 

The theatre is absolutely stunning inside - I can't get enough of it!  I'm so excited about this season's philharmonic concerts, as they are nearly all at this venue.

At this 90th anniversary event, there was a famed theatre organist playing on the Page theatre organ, one of only 3 remaining ones in the world.  Talk about incredible music!!!  I would have loved to have gotten my hands on that organ.  I could listen to that music allllll day long.

Thanks for reading!  Hope you are having a wonderful week.  :)
