a vintage affair


Spending an evening in a full length vintage gown isn't something that happens very often around these parts, not to mention wearing a vintage gown in a beautiful historic building. But this past Thursday we attended a vintage event at the Michigan Theater, a gorgeous historic movie house in Ann Arbor. It was a "red carpet" event complete with faux papparazzi, so fun! It was a benefit for a local teen haven called The Neutral Zone and some short films were shown along with music from a great jazz band. I really wish there were more events requiring people to get super dressed up. There were a lot of people in attendance which told me there is a real interest in this kind of dressed up event although it is the throes of winter. My only complaint was that there were too many girls dressed in "faux" vintage, or dresses that evoked a vintage style as opposed to real vintage.

Mr. DG made me a pre-going out cocktail and wanted to shoot some photos even though I wasn't excited about taking flash photography, but I really glad he made the call because I just love that first photo of us, and Ella!

My heart will never tire of the Michigan Theater. It's sooo beautiful. I'm about a million times more likely to go to a movie/show/event if it's at the Michigan Theater.

I also think it was a good call on the flash photography!
