Nostalgia

First, she has a dress. Second, I can't believe some of the incredibly hideous colors that prom dresses come in! Third, 5:00 on a Monday is definitely THE time to go to the mall.

The vintage-inspired dresses were my favorites, but A wanted long. It's been a while since I've looked at clothes, but I do know that vintage has been "in" -- I was surprised at how "IN" it is -- everywhere. And the "vintage" is anything -- there were shoes that reminded me of my grandmothers ('30s, '40s), but also some thongs that looked so '60s and platform sandals like I had in the '70s! The formal dresses reminded me of my mom and my aunts ('50s, '60s), and there was a little, pink, Chanel-styled jacket that looked just like Jackie's ('60s)... "Audrey" is going to be SO in style (so unlike me)!

Reading the Audrey blog and seeing the progress is fabulous. I'm chomping at the bit!

I finished off the second sleeve of the cardi in Cecil last night, and did about 4 inches on the second half of the front. I'm pretty happy with how it's turning out. If I can pull myself away from the knitting, I just might block those sleeves ahead of time so they're out of the way.

My eldest and the camera ought to be home on Friday or Saturday; I'm anxious to share.
