Sugarpine Living History Day, 2013 – Two-Person ’20s Invasion

1920s costume Ehrman Mansion Lake Tahoe

Yesterday our army of costume-clad amazons, all two of us, invaded a nice little local event at the Ehrman Mansion on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe.  We go every year in ’20s and ’30s attire, confusing the event staff and generally making a spectacle.  This year we were few, but we were saucy.

My adorable mother wore a 1920s bathing costume.

I wore the “just-in-time” Little Jersey Dress.

There were lots of mid-century British Roadsters to delight us, and take pictures next to, which had me scouring eBay later that evening, hoping to find one fully restored, in perfect running order, for a steal (yeah right!)

Historical Dog came along, too, and wasn’t so sure at first…

…but then it was all okay, after chasing some chipmunks and rolling in the grass…

It was a lovely day, nice weather. We ate sandwiches while a trio involving an accordian played “La Vie en Rose.”

The End.
