Packing is so exciting, but darlings, it takes me yonks! My goodness, you’d think I was planning a small invasion of a fashionable country ~ probably one whose main export is hats. The devil is in the stilettos, it’s a careful balance of which ones are worn when and in what order (simply can’t have the same two in a row for blister reasons) and making certain I have matching flats to back each set up. Nevertheless, after much hemming and hawing, close examination of the parties and events on offer at RT plus consultation with the extended weather forecast for next week, we have arrived at a decision!
I have chosen my outfits for RT, LitOrange, and the tea. I am very excited! In case you want to spot me here are the dresses I will be wearing.
I’m also considering starting up a new blog, probably via BlogSpot because it can handle more than one blog at once, that is just retro fashion, pictures of my inspiration, my shopping loot, and me in the outfits at various events. Right now it’s very complex handling the balance in this one blog alone. In the second half of this year, when I have a little bit more time, creating a new fashion-only blog might actually, ironically, save me time and organization. What do you think? One possible title: Professionally Retro: Vintage Style with Gail Carriger. Or Something. Other witty title ideas?
