So in the evening of the second day of the Dress Extravaganza, I had a commitment to tend bar at the Weathervane Playhouse Gala, a Monte Carlo Night fundraiser. Thankfully, I had only a two hour shift, staring early. I was pretty tired. It was a little strange for me to come home, have a few hours to kill and then go out again. So I was doing things around the house dressed, before getting changed, touching up my makeup and heading back out the door.
I was thrilled with my look! We were to either dress in Ocean’s Eleven attire or black and white. Since I had no clue what Ocean’s Eleven attire was, I opted for the simple black and white. I have to say, sometimes the simplest outfits are the prettiest. If I wasn’t so tired, I may have stretched the evening as I thought I looked pretty, pretty good (to quote Larry David) in my leather jacket and sunglasses. The small red touches really popped and I thought set the whole thing off.
My co-bartender was Olivia, a local actress and wonderful person. We had a great time! No real great stories here, just me hamming it up with the gala guests, mixing drinks as only I can (slowly and too strong). Here is Olivia and me at the end of our shift, before I beat it home to hit the sack!
