I spent the weekend at home in celebration of the anniversary of my birth; now I'm 19 years of age. Funny, I feel a lot younger, and also a whole lot older. Like any 19 year old, I took advantage of my return home to spend some quality time hanging around my room playing dress-up in a 1920s gown and playing with my doll. I'm pretty wild, I know. No, I also had a little fête (with cake, of course) and partook in some classically Autumnal activities, like apple picking and riding my horse around in the beautiful woods.
This is The Committee. I make sure I have their sartorial approval before I leave the house, and let me tell you, they were thrilled about this 1920s silk gown. The girl on the right in particular; she even wanted it for herself.
I received some wonderful gifts: tickets to see Gillian Welch in October, a lamp, a vintage Peck & Peck skirt, and some $$$. Perhaps the most beautiful gift was this fantastic violet squaw dress from the lovely Miss M. Garth. I can't wait to wear it out; it's truly a frock fit for this self-proclaimed sweetheart of the rodeo.
I hope your weekend was swell and dandy!
