Wednesday- Bathtub Gin

A bit late on this post, but I suppose it's better late than never...

Wednesday's inspiration was- FLAPPERS! I've long been a lover of the flapper. Or perhaps I should say, me love flappers long time. "Chicago" is coming to our little desert town and I was looking forward to seeing it until I looked up ticket prices. Ouch. I saw it in New York on Broadway though, so I suppose I can't really complain. I set my hopes too high on getting gussied up (this is actually not the first flapper inspired piece in my wardrobe, I have a full fringed one from my burlesque days waiting for a good time to get it's Charleston on) and introducing my friends to the splendor that is a live performance of "Chicago". Maybe next time, but in the meantime, here's me flapping it up.

Outfit Details-
Dress- Forever 21. It was the first thing I could fit in after having Jack. Hooray for the forgiving nature of flapper dresses.
Shoes- Famous Footwear
Hat- Gifted from my friend Colleen (the woman has taste in cats AND hats).
Necklace- My great-grandmother's who was, coincidently, a flapper. She used to call me "Butch" when I was a baby. I had to knot it as Jack got to it and tore it. I plan on remedying this soon.
