Dinner at The Parlor Again, Now With Added Vintage

From left: Monica, Chrissy, Curtis, Maggie, Sam, Kathy, and me.

To round out my trip to visit friends in the Bay Area this weekend, we all made an effort to look elegantly vintage, and enjoyed another fine little party at The Parlor, Sam and Monica’s Victorian apartment.

If you’ve never played this game….

It was pretty much just like the dinner two nights before, except with the addition of one more dear friend, and with nice clothes. 🙂 Here are my few snaps from the night…

I wore an original Lily Diamond gold lamĂ© and brown lace dress…with a cape. I got this dress from the incomparable Lady Carolyn, and wasn’t so sure about the whole thing at first, but one I tried it on…with the cape…I knew I had to have it in my collection.

And then superheros, because capes and leather gloves, and other bizarre reasons

    These photos are great! What a beautiful place your friends have!! By the way, thank you for sharing my blog post on my 1940s red birds dress. I was really excited when I saw that. I'm thinking of entering one of my photos in the Vintage Life Miss August contest if I can figure out a way to increase the dpi of the photo.
    Thanks again!
