Have you bowled yet this summer? This bag belonged to my grandmother. Not sure if she acquired it in the fifties, sixties or seventies but the name reads “Margie Driver” so it was one of those decades before her second marriage changed her name to “Litten”. I found these shoes in the showroom at Viva Las Vegas this year, hand cobbled by a gentleman from the UK. This adorable playsuit is made by SquareWear, formerly known as Cassandra Cadillac. The shop is in Italy, the amazing seamstress and vintage enthusiast is a German educated in England and her work is amazing. This outfit was originally intended to be worn in last year’s Miss Midnight Mass 1950s good girl vs. bad girl pageant. I was cast as a bad girl, and as as a Charlton Heston fan who repeatedly watched The Ten Commandments growing up, what could possibly be more “bad girl” than Egyptians? That’s what the fabric is, Egyptian warriors. I went with a prom dress instead. Miss Midnight Mass 2015 is fast approaching, and the theme is 1960s beachwear. These contests require preparation, and I look forward to reporting what we all come up with July 25!
