Everyman Theater Gala 2011

7 Jun

Back in April, I had a Mad Men themed fundraiser to attend for Baltimore’s Everyman Theater. Because of trips to Santa Fe and Tampa, I didn’t have time to whip something up.


 If I had had the time I would have done some kind of Diana Ross spectaculuar. But, instead I relied on my vintage find from earlier this year. I thought I’d share some photos. 

Don’t worry. Those cigarettes aren’t real. They are candy and each purchase was a raffle ticket.

I’m sad to say the original belt was too small to be worn with the dress.

The woman on the right picked up her dress in Florida and had it shortened for the event. It’s *not* vintage if you can beleive!

My jewelry is vintage too. I bought it during Philly PR Weekend.

Most fun of all, this photo was reprinted in the Baltimore Sun. I’d call it my socialite moment.

    That green (or is it blue?) is your colour. I love the dress on you. What shoes were you wearing?

      I’m sorry to say I don’t remember. But, Carol. We both know I make terribe shoe decisions!

    That event looks like it was a lot of fun! Your dress fits you well, and the replacement belt worked out well.

    The red dress on the right in the last picture is a dead ringer for the Stepsisters dresses I made for Dreamgirls two years ago! http://tinyurl.com/3hh7ru9

    In these photos, you reminded me of Diahann Carroll in her “Julia” years (if you’re old enough to remember that far back). She was so lovely! (And I’m sure she still IS lovely.)
