The monthly "Wine Tasting at the Art Museum" focused on The Great Gatsby book, in sync with other activities around St. Joseph this month. As you can see, I took the costume contest seriously. It was actually pretty easy: I started with the red dress, reminiscent of Daisy's dress described in the book; I added a flapper
headband and white feather from a sorority party in the 80s; Meggar's feather boa; and my mother's dress up shoes from the 60s. Can you believe the red velvet heels?! I loved them, and I loved dressing up. (It's not just for little girls, you know.) Prizes were offered to all six of the brave women who came in period attire! And Angela and I both sipped on the bourbon and found another thing we have in common.
