Three times a year, Palmer and Wirfs puts on a huge antique show at the expo center in Portland. I try to go every time with Twila Jean every time, but the last few times I didn't, so for this one we went all out and dressed as nurses.
Because we both had vintage nurse uniforms and figured this was a good time to wear them. Doesn't everyone have a vintage nurse uniform laying around waiting to be worn?
However, every man over 60 we passed said "Oh! I'm feeling fain! I need a nurse!" and thought that was the most clever, original thing we'd ever heard.
Needless to say, we're becoming quite the novelty at these things.
I walked away with a black princess coat, a hoop skirt (because I need a hoop skirt. Of course.) and eleven bakelite bangles.
I went the next day with my friend Lulu where we ran into Hannah (right) and her friend Sara (middle). I know Hannah from facebook and such, and it was so nice to finally meet her! And Sara was a delight. We all bumped into each other multiple times at the show, and showed off our purchases and chit chatted about this that and the other.
I really fell in love with this GIANT metal wall flowery-thingy. It was about four feet tall, and the flowers are lights! IT LIGHTS UP!!! But I had to leave it behind. It it something I will eventually need in my life though. I just need a house to put around it.
And here is a pic of Lulu and I! (Notice the mini Hobbes on my sweater...). Lulu got some cute household items and Christmas presents (smart girl), and the second day I got a couple more bangles, a pink 49er, and a fabulously witchy 40s stetson, which you can kind of see me holding. All will be in future outfit posts ;)
