Thanks to everyone for all your lovely holiday wishes. I hope you too had a fine time during the holidays.
It was refreshing to take a bloggie and online break. Felt a bit like the year 1999. Hard to believe that our lives weren't always controlled by texting, emails and social media.
Here we are in 2014 and this is what we wore out for New Year's Eve.
Technically it wasn't really New Year's when we wore this, since our flight had been delayed and we were flying back home from Florida, but we wore this out this weekend to a "fake" New Year's Eve dance where we had not one, not two, but three New Year's Eve count downs.
Taken from countdown #2 I think…
Thankfully I didn't age three years in one evening but I have lived through nights where the next day I did feel and look like I'd aged three years. Haven't we all been there?
I wore my 1960's vintage orange Gale Mitchel gown.
I will admit it wasn't easy to dance in this, but oh how I loved wearing this gown.
Husband wore his pinstripe suite. I told him I wanted to dance with James Bond and this was like a modern version.
I still want to find a classic tux for him. Tuxes are so sexy! Don't you think?
Although this Hugo Boss suit is very sexy too.
Note to self: never ever stand like this again. My head looks like it has been Photoshopped on my body. Not in a good Photoshopped way either. And did my face just gain 10 lbs? Definately NOT my good side.
Did you get dressed up and go out for New Year's this year?
The green 1950's dress from Cabaret Vintage.
We got quite a few compliments from people on our outfits.
This is the dress that everyone was enamoured with on my girlfriend. It is a replica by Blackbird Studios and just looks gorgeous on her. Va va voom!
Robert's hat, vest, tie, cuff links, and jacket are all vintage. I really love how his outfit turned out. Sexy!
I had some fun with some photos we took before we left…
Yes this is what happens when you try to pose with your man.
So here are some photos from the Swing Out To Victory dance held at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.
We had a blast.
Under the bomber is where the band played.
We danced quite a bit considering we don't know Lindy Hop. We managed with the swing we know. Too bad they didn't play any tango.
Hazel is a pro dancer and also the reason we were there. She bought the tickets for us for our anniversary. Thanks Hazel!
The band was fabulous.
As were all the dancers.
Lots of people dressed up as you can see. There was even a Nazi couple walking around, which was a bit freaky and kind of weird. They really did look the part. Robert kept wondering why they were there since they had lost the war.
Just look at this skirt!
There were some lovely vintage frocks on the dance floor.
And some great vintage dancers as well.
Aren't the looks on their faces hilarious?
They also had several professional dance troops come in to perform.
It was a very fun evening and now we are looking for a place to take some Lindy Hop lessons.
Thanks for helping me choose my outfit!
