Dia de los Muertos Sale


This weekend my plans changed and I was able to go to the Dia de los Muertos celebration here in town,
which was way cool!


They had vendors last year!
I remembered thinking  that my work would fit in well there…


so I called Cindy
- who is  going to be hard to identify later in street clothes -
and she said,”Come on  down!”

Wow, a new gig, where I get to…yet have to…dress up!

So, here was my naive plan:


Dig out the miniature top hat!
I added some black netting to spruce it up a bit,


 and found an appropriately festive skirt.


Hmmm…what would work best?
The Free People trapeze slip in deep red, or the flirty black slip with multicolored quadrafringe?


A velvet topper, perhaps?


Bottom it off with some great black boots…but which ones???
Or maybe I should  consider the red boots…


So here’s what it came down to in the end:

same hat
same skirt
red slip
different jacket
different (not red) shoes

For me, there usually seems to be a disparity between what I think I’ll be wearing
and the real deal of how I’m feeling on that particular day.

Regardless, I had a good show and lots of fun!
And better yet,
today I don’t need to rush around like a crazy woman,
which, unfortunately, has become the norm.
I can stay home and get organized for the next show…
in a mere 2 weeks!!!
And maybe I shouldn’t take “crazy” off the docket just yet.
