The Little Black Dress

Well, Soda Chicky and her friend Chatterbox left earlier this evening to attend the Bat Mitzvah of Flying Monkey. The girls looked stunning. Far too grown up for a couple of fourteen year olds heading to synogogue. The Chick is wearing "a little black dress" with spaghetti straps, an empire waistline with rhinestones at the waistline. Looks better than it sounds. I put her hair up in a chignon bun and she had black hose and some sweet slingback shoes. Chatterbox had on a similarly designed dress in a lovely shade of fuschia.

They will return late tonight after having way too much fun. These events usually mean a bag load of stuff comes back with the party goers. Monogrammed sweatpants, socks, photos, things that light up and glow in the dark. We spent less on our wedding and honeymoon combined. And we went to Europe for two weeks!

The big worry early on was whether or not Chatterbox would be able to break her Ramadan fast before the food was served tonight. (This is an eclectic group of girls.) Fortunately, the sun set before the service was totally over. They will party with no hitches.

When did they get so grown up, though?

How fun to grow up with a such a diverse group of friends!

Speaking of little black dresses...the other evening FT and I went to hear a wonderful local cabaret singer in her late 60's...retired public servant and ex-hippie-chick who, at age 50-something declared, "I want to sing jazz in clubs" and is now doing just that...anyway, she had on a really snappy, simple little black cocktail dress with very sheer black stockings, spiky heels and an Austrian crystal flapperesque string of beads. I thought, "I hope I look that good at 67" -- which will probably not be the case because my zaftig body would look like a sausage stuffed in a little black dress.;-)

P.S. an after-thought said...

Well, she has (has done) two things I've not had: the little black dress and attending the Bat Mitzvah.
