Old World Fancy

 I often like to pretend that I'm so 'old world fancy'. I like to do this by drinking tea with my pinkie out, applying my eyeliner to the tune of Audrey Hepburn or by sipping a decadent cocktail on a Friday night. But really, my real life is not too fancy and not very 'old world' at all... which is super unfortunate because I think I would take quite kindly to corsets and the whole 'Ladies who Lunch' thing. Not to mention, everything just looked better during 'those' days (whatever 'those' refers to). I mean if Titanic had been set off the Pacific NW coastline, Circa:Now- then controlling, psychotic, handsome Cal wouldn't be chasing and trying to kill Jack in a tuxedo- he'd be in a fleece. I mean Rose, do you realize how lucky you are that your man was always dressed up for you!?!

So, since I've never had a crumpet, get bad looks when I use an Umbrella on a Sunny day and find that no one likes to refer to me as "Lady Caitlin"- I shall settle for the fanciness that comes along with a night at the Downtown Symphony with your family:
^I was there Feb. 11th with part of my family for the show.
^Stunning Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall- built in 1928.
^Old World Beauty
^Enjoying my view from the stairs.
^Where can I get one of these?
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

Happy Weekend, dahhhlings!

No-one will call me lady charlotte either, so rude! I love your titanic reference too.. if only we still dressed up like rose and jack (jack was sexier all dressed up than cal was ;) ) xx

Oh my goodness that venue looks amazing! Also, my mind is absolutely blown at the news you've NEVER had a crumpet! You need to rectify this immediately!

Looks lie a grand time harkening back to the old days.

It's amazing how quickly pictured you in a bustier at a ladies lunch having crumpets and tea Lady Caitlin! I believe crumpets are like scones. I think Laura of A Daisy Chain Dream has a good crumpet recipe! I'm glad you enjoyed Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with part of your family m' lady. I think there's a new Titanic being built. I wonder if it will cruise near you? I like the photos you took with the chandeliers in them. Is that the intended decor of your eventual foyer?

Ohhhhhhh the 9th is one of my FAVORITES. The Seattle Symphony performs it every year and I try to see it each year. Love love love.

I've never had a crumpet either. I'm not sure if I even know what it is lol

There's a Titanic II that will set sail in 2016 :-)

I often think I would do much better in "those" days myself. I don't have a probably with calling you Lady Caitlin. :)

It's beautiful there! I always love dressing up for a show at our Boston Opera House...so old and other worldly.

That venue is GORGEOUS!! What a fun experience. I always wish I was fancy too. But alas I am not.
