My last post I chatted with you about the dress I made to wear with my marcasite brooches my husband gifted me with. I of course needed to tell you about one of the occasions that I was able to wear them. It has become an annual tradition for the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles to co-sponsor a dinner dance with the private ladies club, The Ebell of Los Angeles. This year paid tribute to the film Casablanca and the 1940s.
Fezs and '40s gowns abounded, dancing lasted till late in the evening to Dean Mora's orchestra, a magician amazed guests, dance performances enchanted, and tours and costume displays showcased The Ebell in all its splendor. The Ebell, known as the last location that Amelia Earhart spoke before she disappeared, is a gorgeous venue that I have profiled before.
My lovely friend Lily and I toasting the evening.
Sometimes as a blogger or Instagrammer we put ourselves in silly situations, subject to the patience of our loved ones and the looks of others. What was an innocent picture above, showing my marcasite with the dress...
Here are Lily and Brian looking more, ahem, respectable.
We were quite terrible at taking pictures the rest of the evening, but here are the paltry few we managed to capture.
I do hope you enjoyed the post, the dress, the silliness and the glamour.
Until next time,
