    I have a lunch tomorrow at a very fancy hotel and it's one of those Murder Mystery things. It's a wake for a gangster, set in 1929.

    I went to Burlington this evening and I found a drop-waist dress with a flirty hem, a cloche hat, pearls, gloves, and a pearl bracelet with a black flower. I also got some round-toed heels with a flower on it.

    I'm going to put my hip length hair into three ponytails and then curl it and pin it in pincurls so that it looks short in the back. Just long enough to peak out under the hat in the back.

    Oh... and the dress was only 9.99, the hat was 13.99, and the necklaces and bracelet were 4.99 and 3.99, the shoes were 9.99. Not bad!!

    I'm sure I can get pictures.

    Oh, what fun! I was lucky enough to get to act in a murder mystery dinner theater once. U of I was hosting the Big Ten Purchasing Conference and I got to play the ghost of the first murder victim. A non-speaking part, mostly just gliding by doorways, windows, etc., but it was loads of fun. It was held at the Robert Allerton Mansion in Allerton Park. http://allerton.illinois.edu/

    Well, here's one picture. I can't take a full length one myself with my camera phone. :-D

    My hair won't let the hat go on. I've moved the bun, took it out and twisted it up... it's just not working unless I put my hair on top of my head.

    Your outfit is just perfect! If you can, please post the shoes.

    In any case, I hope you'll post back and tell us all about the mystery.
