Summer school is finally coming to a close today (just in time for my birthday)! Although it was a lot of work condensed into 7 weeks of classes, I took classes that were perfect for summer--a creative writing course in which we write original short stories, which really got my creative juices flowing, and a seminar course in which we see performances and come back to discuss them as a class. The latter of the two gave me plenty of opportunities to dress up, whether for the symphony, the theatre, or a jazz club.
My favourite event to plan an outfit for was The EXIT Theatre's production of "The Desk Set"--a play taking place in the 1950s. I curled my newly-dyed bright pink hair and threw on this vintage-inspired, full-skirted dress and enjoyed myself a good show. Although I never need an excuse to rock a 50s silhouette, it's always fun to make an excuse for one ;).
This Betsey Johnson rotary phone handbag has been my go-to bag for almost two years now, and it fit in perfectly with my little 1950s theme--not to mention I can never leave the house without getting so many compliments on it, as well as turn some heads when I use the phone for actual phone calls (yes, the phone bit really works through my mobile phone!).
Happy August to everyone, and enjoy your last few weeks of summer!
Stay sweet ♡
