my grandma is so chic.

is the ceremony of dressing dead?
i can remember the days when i was a little kid, watching my grandmother run from her bedroom closet, through the bedroom, and into the bathroom, where on the large counter, she had an assortment of clamps and colors and tweezers and brushes and earrings and necklaces and rings and you get the picture, all laid out in-front of her.  all the while, every move she made as traced in a silk shadow from her dressing gown.  i can still remember wondering up until the very last minute, the car is ready, the purse is properly packed, and larry is heading to the door, is she fully dressed?  is this long floor length, rose painted, burgundy and gold masterpiece your dress for the evening?!  no, it wasn't, it was just part of the dressing ceremony.  once everything was in place, and set, then the real dress came out.  but still, i cant help but think...  i still to this day cant remember a single gown she ever wore, but i remember every silk kaftan.
this is why dynasty has been so exciting...  i have started a new game, evening gown, or night gown.  they all look amazing!
