I have yet to accomplish anything in preparation for the Rhythm Rocker weekend. I think I have been avoiding it because I have gained weight and I'm afraid some of my favorite items wont fit. I really need to get on it though. I know I have a few things that I have barely worn, if at all. Its always hard though because you dont want to wear something you wore to the last major event. Our rule for Viva is that you can't wear the same thing two years in a row (our other rule is no shorts/playsuits/bathing suits on the dance floor). However, since this is an entirely different event in a different state I may break this rule just a bit. We shall see. I'm sure I have plenty of things that I've been dying to wear and just havent. It shouldnt be too hard to find a great wardrobe to pack!
I did finally mend a vintage sweater that I have. Its from the 40s and is really stunning.
It had a few holes in it and some of the stiching along the elastic band had come loose. I love this sweater because it is so hard to find vintage ones! Plus, its button broach still has all its rhinestones, which is another rarity.
Also in this photo you will see an emerald green cardigan peaking out. Thats another item I need to mend for winter now that I think about it.
This is just a shot of a teeny section of my closet, including my Mod Cloth coat that I absolutely love btw!! That blue-ish sweater is new as well. Its Ralph Lauren and looks really vintage. Its wool though, so it will wait until colder weather.
