Last week I got a text from a friend asking if I’d like to going to the Western Reserve Historical Society’s annual fundraiser event as one of her friends (who I’ve met before) had an extra ticket. Second weekend in a row spent at a Cleveland benefit? Just call me High Society Girl.
The event was ’60s themed
, complete with appropriately-themed music, food, decorations. There were also some Silent Auction and Raffle items, some of which fit into the theme (like the VW Beetle advertising poster I had my eye on) and some that didn’t (like the Hale Farm & Village
gift basket). Oh, and cocktails. Like Blue Hawaiians
. Which I might
have had two of.
Dressing up was optional, and while I originally told Lisa I wouldn’t, with some magic in my closet and a couple of YouTube make-up videos, I managed to pull together an outfit partially inspired by Edie Sedgwick.
(Let me tell you: I used to think I wore a lot of eye makeup, but that’s nothing compared to what I was rockin’ last night.)
Bonus: I now know how to throw together an Adele
Halloween costume if I ever so choose.
My friend ended up winning Best Costume, but looking at that sweet blue dress it’s not hard to see why.
By the end of the evening, our group had decided it would be fun to throw a ’60s themed dinner party and game night. Good thing I have that ol’ fondue pot of mine.
Love from the ashes,
