Haunted Housewife Dress

Hello there! Once again, the work week is more than half way over with. Love that feeling, although of course I love the Friday morning feeling even more. Tonight I'm not doing too much; doing laundry, reading a book ("Orphan Train"), relaxing on the couch with Bob. I'm about halfway through "Orphan Train". I had never heard of it until my mom lent it to me last week. It's really sad, and what makes it worse is even though this is ficiton, my mom said that there really were "orphan trains" in the early 1900's. An "orphan train" is basically where orphans are taken by train to towns in the U.S. for adults to pick out an orphan to take home to do labor for them. They weren't adopted, they were used for work, and often treated horribly. 
Last Saturday night I was at a casino with Bob and some co-workerks. I won the second most money I've ever won at a casino! I won $135 playing roulette. Well, I put down $50 of that, but the $50 wasn't mine to start with. My bosses had given it to me to gamble with. So, I really did walk away with $135! It was awesome. When it's my own money, I stop gambling after I lose about $5, $10. And I would never put down a bet of $25. (This roulette table had a minimum bet of $25.)
Friday night I'm going to Panera with my grandmother for dinner. I don't have much planned for the weekend yet. It's next weekend that's going to be a lot of fun! Bob & I are going to NYC next Saturday for the day, for my birthday. I've been going to NYC every year for my birthday for about six years now. 
In the pictures below I'm wearing a Pin Up Girl Clothing dress that I hadn't worn all summer because of the 3/4 sleeve length, and thicker material. I love the style & shape of it. The style is called "Haunted Housewife", and it's a very 50's look. For most women, black dresses are their "staple." I don't own a solid black dress. For me, red dresses are my "staples."
