I found this dress on eBay this past winter and had to get it for our trip to Disney World. Unfortunately for me, the weather in Orlando was absolutely freezing when we were there, so this thin dress didn't do me a whole lot of good. But I did look like Minnie Mouse, and I got a lot of compliments on it when we spent the day at Hollywood Studios! I ended up wearing my Minnie Mouse sweatshirt & wide white belt over it when we saw Fantasmic! (and thank goodness I brought it, or I would've turned into an ice cube!)... but now the weather is much too warm for that kind of layering. I didn't even need a cardigan on the day I took these! I had intended to wear a petticoat underneath, but somehow, it just didn't look right. I think I need a softer crinoline with much less volume for these kinds of dresses. My current one works for dresses with more structure and weight to the skirt, but for thinner dresses like this one, it looks ridiculous. I'll add it to the never-ending list, I guess!
We had a vocal rehearsal last night for that gig I'm a part of for the Jazz Festival. Vocal rehearsals are always my favorite part of the rehearsal process for shows, and I always like them in these circumstances, too. My ear craves complicated things, which I think is why I like singing harmonies so much. We sang a bulk of the set list a couple of years ago at the same festival, and I can usually retain vocal parts for a long time, so I essentially just needed a bit of a refresher. I'll be eager to start being in rehearsals for a show again... whenever that will be! I have a couple of auditions later on this summer, but any show I'm cast in won't be until the fall, at the earliest. We shall see. Right now, I'm focused on this gig. I'm excited to see what the turn-out will be like! And I'm pretty excited to wear my new dress from Lindy Bop (my first from them!) for it. Can you believe I didn't have a cute black dress in my closet?! Crazy. But I have so many prints that solid dresses are few and far between!
Have a great Wednesday!
