Events and Adventures - 8/13 thru 7/14
I try to visit as many exhibits, lectures, and events related to vintage, fashion, design, style, and history as I possibly can. Sharing my experiences with you is a big part of the fun.
Sometimes, an event warrants its own blog post. Have you read about my visit to the Mint Museum's incredible costume collection? Or the small but interesting local exhibit on Mid-Century Ranch Houses? Or my viewing of the silent film "The Loves of Pharaoh?"
Other times, an annotated photo album will suffice. In those cases, I prepare a slide show of sorts, and post it as an album on the Better Dresses Vintage Facebook Page. You don't need to "Like" us to view them (although we hope you do!). Here is a sampling of some of those albums. Click the image below each description to go directly to the slide show.
See me enter the costume contest at last year's Victorian street festival. It's where I met Kat, interviewed here.
Most recently, I served as an extra in 1930s garb on the upcoming HBO film "Bessie," starring Queen Latifah. This album will grow as the casting company lifts its restraints on photography.
I hope you'll come view at least a few of these albums, and share your thoughts.
