The last couple of days, whether it be driving, at work, or at school, I've been finding myself day dreaming non-stop about WWII Days in Rockford coming up! My hearts starts beating really fast as I start scheming new hairdo ideas, what alterations my dresses need, things I still need but have yet to buy. I seriously still have such a big to do list. So, I thought I'd post it on this ye old blog here to remind myself not to get too caught up in the glamorous things, but more or less the things I really need that I really suffered without last year. Let us start, shall we?
Last year for some reason I thought it was a great idea to cram all my shit into miscellaneous bags that not only severely wrinkled my clothes, but made it so hard to dig out things I needed in a jiffy. Not to mention how difficult it was to try hiding a loud, stripped bag from high school at a reenactment. Ugh.
Alright now forgive me for choosing a not-so-great picture of an army cot, but Ebay won't let me copy pasta pictures so this will do. It seriously sucked sleeping on the floor last year and I couldn't even sleep half the time because I was so god damn COLD. Still, I don't think getting a cot is in the cards for me. The mister hasn't found any luck finding these. Figures, before we found them everywhere for like, $15 bucks. Now the we actually need one we can't find even one.
A knitted sweater. No scratch that, more like 10. I did not anticipate how FREEZING it was going to be that weekend, not to mention raining! I was a big dummy and brought one sweater, and I didn't even want to wear it because it just wasn't that cute. I really wish I could whip one up before the event, but that's wishful thinking. Oh and also the fact I've never knitted a sweater before. Pssh. What I'll probably end up doing is buying an XL knitted sweater at the thrift store and manipulate it into looking like I knitted it. Ha!
At least bring something else BESIDES dresses, yeesh! I would be happy as a clam if I had these bag dogs to change into, especially when it got so cold. I'm seriously considering ordering some, just because they're so darn cute and I'm convinced I need them in my life forever. Not to mention I need to stop looking at dresses and start looking for more blouses. I already have enough damn dresses!
Accessorize! Man did I get bored and uninspired with my outfits so quickly. I need to remember to bring my scarves and recent hat collection, and be on the lookout for fun pins, purses, and hunt down some bakelite jewelry! For now I'm gathering some inspiration from these lovely gals!
And last but not least, shoes! Holy crap did my feet hurt from walking all day in heels. Try walking on gravel all day in heels and tell me how you feel in the end. I'm hoping if I opt for wedges and saddle shoes this year, I'll be ok. I'm still sad though, will I ever get used to walking in heels?
I'm sure I'm missing plenty more important things, but this will have to do for now, I'm way too tempted to actually buy some of these things. I need to save my money for this weekend, because I'm FINALLY going to the Renegade Craft Fair and The Vintage Bazaar this weekend! Goodnight, yall!
