Halloween is over. I went to a very fun party last night, and yes, dressed up. I went as a mail lady, circa 1978. In a 100% polyester United States Post Office regulation uniform, mind you. How did people wear this stuff?
I also whipped up some tricks and treats to deliver (see below). The mail was fashionably carried in a vintage Coach saddlebag -- looked great! I don't know if the mail ladies of the 70s sported white shortie gloves, but I raided the DAR drawer to add a little extra lady-like panache.
I originally bought this uniform for the logo patch:
The treats -- love letters to Paris and postcards:
And the tricks -- !!
Thanks to K and J for a great shindig!
Now the holiday season starts --
