I’m going to a white tie event next month in Newport, RI, to celebrate my cousin’s Nobel Prize. But I need a gown. A GOWN. I’ve been asking around to find out where you can even find one that’s affordable and everyone is suggesting Rent the Runway.
The only thing I worried about with Rent the Runway is if you rent by the day (or days) then I would need to wait until right up until the event to pick one. I don’t know about not knowing what I’m going to wear until days before. And everything is sure to be too long, I’m short! (I can’t wear heels, foot problems.)
I’m going to spend the weekend searching at a bunch of places that were suggested to me by friends on Facebook. If I can’t find anything I like and can afford I will fallback on Rent the Runway.
Here is my cousin accepting the Nobel Prize.
My friend Jackie added Bodhi, Bali and Bleecker to the banner. Of course I now look like a truly crazy cat lady, but I don’t care. I love how they look. Especially Bodhi who is second from the right. I caught him with that special look which says, “What? Your attention is on me now? You know how this ends.” (He pounces. Pain ensues.)
A sign I saw the other day.
My friend Jackie is updating my blog so it’s looking a little off lately. It still needs a few tweaks here and there. We’re also going to try adding pictures of Bodhi, Bali and Bleecker to the banner. I hope that works out. I don’t have the greatest pictures of them, but we shall see. Here they are, hanging out on the bed. The one thing I love about the new blog is there are room for bigger pictures!
I was asked, “Are you here for research or visiting?” I’ve never been asked that before. “Research!” Of course. Duh! As per usual, I’m looking into a very, very morbid topic. True crime is all the rage right now, and my angle is the most, I don’t know how to put it, maybe dramatic? It has to do with something I learned while researching my book about the NYPD’s Cold Case Squad. I always meant to come back to it and I think the time is right.
I took this picture on my way out.
