I bought this dress ages ago, but never wore it. I didn't want the year to run out without wearing it, so today at last, the brown formal was worn. That's part of the problem, I think. "Brown formal" doesn't really sell it the way it might have in 1972. There was always something more exciting to wear, and the dress was pushed back, back. back in the wardrobe to the land of forgotten vintage. Stop looking at me like that-it is a dress, not a baby for fuck's sake.
1970's formal-Fairy Tail costumes
Fragrance-Vintage perfume concentration Emeraude
1 1/2 oz. gin
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 dashes orange bitters
2 dashes sugar syrup
1 egg white
Shake well with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass.
I'm off to rummage through the wardrobe for other forgotten items. We have more ice coming tonight, but by Sunday we're expecting 56 degrees F along with rain, flooding, gale force winds and every other sort of severe weather you don't see in December around here. We'll be fine-I stocked up on booze and cheese which is all you really need for an enjoyable holiday. Well, all I need anyway.
