Ashley and my other dear friend Jennifer are two other gal pals in Tucson, that have a love for playing dress up in vintage clothing. They share a common love for the vintage lifestyle. In fact, we used to have so much fun dressing all up to the nines in vintage and parading all over town calling ourselves the Fabulous Forties Gals. We used to have so much fun exposing the town to our appreciation of the eras gone past. Especially the elders, who we loved to entertain and bring back their young memories.
We even got hired a couple of times to entertain at nostalgic events, car shows, fashion shows, etc. My mother being the amazing seamstress she is! Made all three of us amazing 1940's inspired Cigarette Girl costumes. We wore those cute little uniforms with such enthusiasm for the bygone days of enchanting nightclubs and dances.
Some other plans on my trip include taking my son to Universal Studios, spending some time at the beach, sightseeing in Hollywood, going to the Roaring Twenties event at the Cicada Club in Downtown Los Angeles, searching for Art Deco pieces and of course stopping in Orange to do some vintage hunting!! Oh yeah! and I have a photo shoot planned in San Diego on the way back home. So excited about that! I can't wait to share my ideas and photos!
I will probably spend the next couple of days packing and getting things ready to depart on Thursday morning. I am hoping to do a later post (maybe Wednesday) showing some of the outfits that I have planned to wear. I will leave you with some photos that I have acquired over the years, of the Fabulous Forties Gals. Also some photos from our last trip to California!
I hope you all have a blessed Monday!!
