This weekend we went to one of our favourite dances, the Swing Out to Victory dance at the Heritage War Plane museum in Hamilton where we both got into the mood by dressing vintage style.
Robert outdid himself with some Clark Gable facial hair. It was fun for the night but I was relieved when he shaved it off the next day. Let it be known…I hate facial hair on my man and on 99% of all other men for that matter.
Robert is wearing vintage cuff links, tie clip, tie, vest, pocket watch, blazer and hat.
I’m 100% vintage except for the shoes and belt.
It just so happened that it was 2 days before our 23rd wedding anniversary so it was perfect timing.
23 years…where has the time gone??? Seems like it was only yesterday that Robert was saying in his thick French accent to the Justice of the Peace, ” I want” instead of “I do.”
It worked for me.
It was fun to see so many people getting dressed up for the event. I had to get a photo of these ladies with all their hats…they were so much fun.
Below are three of the people that won for best costume. This gal on the left with the black hair really did look like she was off of some movie set.
Live music, dinner, dancing, silent auction and vintage war planes…it was a blast!
We’ve never danced as much as we danced that night. I think we only sat out 3 songs the whole evening.
I just adore these kind of events. They have another Big Band Dinner and Dance for New Year’s Eve we are seriously considering as well.
The atmosphere at these type of dances is just so much fun. Especially when people get into character with their costumes and dress in vintage style.
It was a brilliant way to celebrate our anniversary.
What do I love about my husband after being married for 23 years? The fact that he is willing and excited to dress up vintage style and go to swing dances, or take Tango lessons, or basically open to discovering new things together.
Here is to many more years of dressing up and having fun!
Love you babe!
