keep this train rollin'


nope, no derailing in the here and now, although i have derailed in blogland in order to stay on track!!  this eve is opening night in dallas...ruggy is by my side, and oh by the way we were apart for FIFTY TWO FRIGGIN DAYS HASH TAG NEVERDOINGTHATAGAIN.  

ahem.  in the middle of the usual madness surrounding this sort of event, ruggy and i found some time to vintage shop hop.  gotta get the man looking right for the par-tay tonight.  as for me, i'm choosing between this silk and this bombshell.  it's a big decision, 'cause i'm gonna go ahead and say it: this show is the most magical, beautiful performance i've ever been so lucky to be part of.  and as y'all know, we show our love and respect in the cloth we wear.  hash.  tag.  truth.

happy weekend to all!  see you when the train slows down next week!

  7. ZOMG! 52 days? That's cruel and unusual punishment! The longest we ever made it was three weeks. Yikes.

    Have a super AWRSOME performance! (I reject superstition! ;) ) hey, apparently "awrsome" is in my autocorrect, but only in all caps. Huh.

    Rock on!!!

  19. Wear the bombshell or why not the fluffy ruffly blue number in the photo? You will be wonderful in any case.

  20. Congratulations on the opening! I just know you will be absolutely FABULOUS! I say Bombshell girl! You got the goods, now flaunt them!!

    Good Luck tonight and Break a Leg!

  21. The silk!! OMG, I swear I want that so bad. I still can't sew very well though and the top is so perfectly fitted to you that I'm assuming you did tricky things like darts or lings with cups or something like that.

  26. I want to fly to Dallas and watch you FLY. Have a great night! I vote Bombshell!

  27. I'm late reading this post - so I'm guessing you are now recovering from the huge party that was to celebrate the opening of your show .... which I also know that of course you were AMAZING! Congratulations!

  28. Silk. Unless there will be dancing; then the high-low hem could be a problem. Both lovely dresses.

    1. it'a actually a straight hem, but! the handstitching in the hem tape did get snagged once or twice. must remedy that...

  29. Break a leg and you look marvelous in both dresses but I love the Anna Sui most!

  30. KUDOS to you! My apologies if you are not one to read your reviews, but for your other readers who may view your comments — OONA IS AMAZING!! Cannot wait for you to come to Broadway with what sounds like an incredible show (pretty pretty please)!!

    "Mami Wata is an invented character. Since the Mermaid’s Lagoon in now a swamp, the show needed a Voodoo Swamp Thing to rule it. Marcy Harriell brings a huge voice to the role. Early on, she is an R&B belter but later sings with operatic clarity and a stunning soft vocal line. Her turning point duet with Wendy is a showstopper. She is also involved with two of the production’s truly magnificent coup de théâtre, which I will not spoil here except to say that the audience gets an aerial view and the swamp vanishes."
