Fashion Show

On Friday night at the historic Hassayampa Hotel in downtown Prescott, AZ,
there was a fashion show/dinner/fundraiser benefiting “the arts.”

Today's Prescott Center for the Arts Charter Auxiliary's meeting was full of excitement as the final plans were layed for this years Fashion Show & Dinner Theater. Full of great Food, Fashion, Musical entertainment and Fun! This years, 20's theme, show at the historical Hassayampa Inn promises to be the best ever.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

The fashion show featured three downtown clothing boutiques
and I was one of the models for Clothes Hound.


It was decided that I would wear my 4 Love and Liberty tunic dress,
seen here,
but without the pencil skirt.


I dressed it up with black tights,
flapper pearls,
a scarf,
vintage marcasite earrings,
and a flower and feather headband.

Luckily, just the day before, I graduated to “real” shoes,
and and dug out some black ankle booties I could wear.
They aren’t exactly the style of the roaring ’20′s, but they felt like a miracle for me!

Behind the scenes, we all got dressed and coiffed and made-up,
while being wined and dined…


then all the models hung around in the lobby
listening to live jazz music,
and chatting with the patrons during the cocktail hour.

Here’s Clothes Hound’s crew, all dolled up as flappers!

Dressing up is still a blast at any age, no?
