Last weekend, Mark and I attended a fundraiser for our local schools. The event was a "Cinco de Mayo" party, hosted at a board member's home. The home is beautiful, the food is always yummy, and there is dancing after dinner. In preparation for this event, I sought advice from my sister, Gail, on what to wear. Gail is prepared for every eventuality, from Crazy Hat Day to Octomom Day to Night of the Living Dead Day. Cinco de Mayo is easy stuff for her.
This dress is what she pulled out of her closet for me. True--it's more Hawaiian than Mexican, but there is something extra cool about it. Our mom made it, to wear on her own trip to Hawaii, probably 35 years ago. She made my father a matching shirt, but the shirt apparently got more wear than the dress, and is long gone.
Now isn't that fun?
