Last night we enjoyed yet another lovely evening at the historic Hollywood Theatre to watch Mad Men on the big screen. This evenings outfit was brought to you mostly by my grandmother.
I took home this dress (and necklace) during our period of cleaning out her things after she passed away. Sadly, she didn’t keep much of her clothing from the past. You can actually see her wearing this dress (and belt!) in this family photo from 1965.
Check out all those nifty glasses everyone is rockin’! My mum is the one on the right in the red sweater.
And guess what! This girl won Best Dressed! I competed against some very lovely gals and one gent, actually! One girl had a marvelous mod coat that I would love to have in my closet one day! Last night’s prize was not just two passes to the Hollywood, but also a jar of Pink Slip Jam!
Okay, I am not joking at all when I say that this is seriously the best jam I have ever had grace my lips. And you want to know what makes it so yummy? The fact that it is made with organic strawberries, cane sugar and lemon juice. Yes, that is it! It is perfectly sweet with a slight tang due to the lemon and is simply delightful. I could eat it all day. You can get your hands on some of this deliciousness (which is Naked Fraises, along with many other flavors) by purchasing on-line using the above link.
I will not have an entry for next week’s episode, since Patrick and I will be up in the air, flying back from San Francisco while the episode is airing, and will have to catch it on OnDemand later in the week.

Necklace, Dress, & Belt: Were my grandmother’s
