Girls... is there anyone out there that doesn't have or once had a pair of Keds? Hmmm??
I recently found these beauties~ looked like they had never been worn. Leather Keds for only $2.99 at the consignment shop. Just in time for a sock hop!
My client/friend invited us to a sock hop in honor of her 56th birthday. It was fun! The sad part is that we only got 2 pictures there, when my batteries died. Yep. I know. Blogger's worst nightmare. But had you been tagging along you would've seen all the great food and lots of twistin' goin' on! Everyone was in costume. I really enjoyed seeing the kids dressed up.
So, unfortunately we have no pics from the party action, or the birthday girl! But we do have some black and whites taken in a photo booth there, and a few from when we got home.
Here's the only pic from the party, Nova's first ice cream soda!
Here's what my little rebel wore~
Here's our black and white picture booth shots. I look like a total goof in some of these, but you know how those photo booth pics can be, lol!
Kevin wore a 50's style "bowling shirt" and jacket, rolled up jeans, and saddle shoes.
I'm all for poodle skirts, but I prefer pussy cats! My skirt and blouse are vintage 50's. I tacked on the kitty. The skirt is made of a fine wale courduroy, I love the texture... you can see it in the shoe pics. Thank goodness for wide 50's belts because after gaining my Thanksgiving/Christmas seven, this skirt was not zipping up all the way, lol!
Musn't forget the high curled ponytail, complete with ribbon!
I'm sporting faux bangs, black liquid eyeliner, and vintagey lips in Revlon's Cherries In the Snow. (which by the time these pics were taken it had probably worn off a bit!)

And lastly, here I am with Elvis and a friend at a work party back in 2005. Had to show you my pink crinoline! And look.... there's my saddle shoes!
Happy Birthday Andrea!
