Hello there! Well, it finally feels like fall here. It has really cooled down the past couple of days. We definitely had had an Indian summer, until Friday. Unfortunately, the heat doesn't work in our apartment yet, so I am not happy about that. Last night it got down to 38 degrees, so I slept with a very thick, heavy blanket on top of our quilt. Every year we have the same problem in our apartment, and it's very annoying. I really hope it gets fixed today.
Last night Bob and I went out for drinks (and food for him) to a local restaurant/bar. During the day I went to a Pyrex event called Pyrex Palooza. This event was about forty minutes from me, so that was great! The event was smaller than the last Pyrex event I went to two weeks ago, but there were still plenty of good vendors there, and a few of the same ones from two weeks go. I still had birthday money to spend, which was nice. I picked up three pieces of Pyrex (for only $26 total!), a couple of framed Pyrex prints, and a Pyrex printed dish towel. I also talked to a few of the vendors for awhile, three of them being vendors I have seen/talked to before. Pyrex isn't my biggest antiquing passion, but I do love it, and there's definitely a nice little community of Pyrex vendors/collectors.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my much worn Trashy Diva Big Band Bows Jaclyn dress. I have blogged about this dress at least two other times. I adore the neckline on the dress, and the fact that the top part is red, and the bottom has a great 1940's fruit print on it. The dress colors definitely aren't bright, but I still love the print and the style. I obviously wear mostly 1950's vintage and repro looks, but I also love my 1940's vintage and reproduction dresses, too. The skirts weren't as full in the 40's dresses, which is one downside for me. I've worn this dress to work, to family functions, to go out for drinks, etc. It's appropriate for many different settings. I also think it's quite flattering on me, and I like wearing it with fishnet stockings. I refuse to wear any other stockings than fishnets, as I don't find them comfortable.
