Tonight, for New Year’s Eve, I am wearing a ballerina lenght evening gown, in black and gold taffeta, with black velvet leaves and flower details and a bolero. I also have my black glitter heels and purse, black and gold earrings, bakelite bangles and necklace.
I purchased this dress in August 2008 from a vintage shop in Cambridge Massachussets, the city of the Harvard University. I found the shoes from an antique mall in Bakersfields, California, in April 2011 and the purse from ebay last month. The bangles are from the Helsinki vintage fair a couple of years ago and from Tamara and Cyril’s vintage stall at the Rockabilly Rave R’n’R weekender last June. The earrings are from an antique mall in Bakerfields but I do not remember where I bought the necklace.
