Here’s a few quick pics of me in Avalon (yes, like the song) on Catalina Island, for the Catalina Jazz Dance Festival in November 2010. The first is on the ferry over with the Casino Ballroom in the background, and the second with Miss Catalina 2010, on the slab. Round sunglasses are Top Shop, the aviator jacket is Zara, the dress is vintage 1950s from Eons in Pittsburgh, the yellow scarf from Thriftique in Pittsburgh, the cream scarf from a vintage market in Paris. I’m going back to the 2011 festival for sure! Beautiful weather, great bands, and the most beautiful ballroom I’ve ever been in in my life. And this time I’m bringing a vintage bathing suit and I’m going to strut my stuff for the Miss Catalina contest. Come on ladies, who else is in?
“Bonnie Parker (October 1, 1910 â€“ May 23, 1934) and Clyde Barrow (March 24, 1909 â€“ May 23, 1934) were well known outlaws, robbers, and criminals who, with their gang, traveled the Central United States during the Great Depression. Their exploits were known nationwide. They captured the attention of the American press and its readership during what is sometimes referred to as the “public enemy era” between 1931 and 1934. Though known today for his dozen-or-so bank robberies, Barrow in fact preferred to rob small stores or rural gas stations. The gang is believed to have killed at least nine police officers and committed several civilian murders. They were eventually ambushed and killed in Louisiana by law officers.”Â – Wikipedia
