Yeah!!! Today was the day! "We Wear History" went to the event "Victorian Boise at the Bishops' House" today and we had a marvelous time! The Bishops' House is a wonderful historical site here in Boise and it is a beautiful example of Queen Anne style architecture. I want it.
Anyway, this was also the day that the captain's dress debuted! I felt really good in the dress and it fit me very well! And praise God it was cool today!! Yeah!! The only time I got hot was after walking up the stairs to look at the wonderful ladies dress display on the second floor....I think I'm getting or out of shape or both!! Below are many photographs my fabulous Mama took of my dress and hat....
The lovely ladies of "We Wear History"! Me, Lana Walters, Marilyn Holly, and Tammy Eliasen....such a wonderful and gracious group of women to share my love of costuming with!!
It appears as if we have scandalized the newest member of our group! She will soon come over to the dark side! Bwahahahaha.....
Well, I am home, the corset is off, the shoes are off, the dress has been hung in the closet and the hat is back on the mannequin head. Today was a GREAT day and I had so much fun sharing it with my friends! Can't wait for next weekend!!!
