Your Presence Is Requested...

Once again we at the Casablanca bring you this thrilling Public Announcement...
 Betty and  Veronica have been burning up the phone lines, taking reservations and spreading the word about "As Time Goes By" at the illustrious Casablanca Hotel & Resort. Its going to be quite an event!
 For those of you joining this program, "As Time Goes By" is going to be a part celebrating 5 great years at the Casablanca. Everyone is welcome, if you'd like to attend please send us an Email at JahJah_Jordan@hotmail.com  , and I will get you all the information you need!

*  *  *  
I was thinking this week what else could I do to make this party really authentic, and then I had a BRILLIANT idea. Since my blogger pals who have decided to join us, and we're all pretty much about Vintage, I thought to myself "Why not dress up for the occasion?!"  Now I'm not talking 'White Tie and Tails', (And by no means are you required to dress up) But here are a few ideas we've had for possible party clothes!

For the Ladies...
These are just a few ideas. I realize you might not be willing to drive allll the way to Texas and throw on a Party dress to attend a cook out (but think how fabulous it will look in pictures!) I'm all for pedal pushers or what ever your Vintage Gal's may want to do Think Doris Day in 'The Pajama Game'! EXCEPT FOR....
NO POODLE SKIRTS PLEASE!!!! As hard as this may be to believe they actually did wear more than poodle skirts in the 50's I cannot tell you how many times iv had to explain that! haha. Besides do you really wanna wear a felt skirt in this HEAT?! lol

Now for the Gents...



For the Guys. Anything really goes, since its summer maybe jeans with tennis shoes and a Hawaiian shirt? Or bowling shirt perhaps?! (That's what I'll be wearing! Along with a fedora)  Like I said it would be cool if the little blogger group coming all dressed up vintage for a group picture, BUT by no means do you have to!  much like the poodle skirt rule, I'm putting a ban on 'Greaser' leather jackets to!  Mainly because this is NOT a soc hop! :)

Hope to hear your thoughts about this soon! Good Idea? Bad Idea?! 

What do you think?...

Wish I could go!

For those of us that can't make sure to take tons of photos, and maybe some video to post on youtube for us to see how it went!

Identify the folks in the pics with their blogs so we can put a face to the blogger. I love doing this!

That way we can all share in your wonderful event and feel like we too get to enjoy a little of your hospitality!

MoonDoggie said...

I'm another that sends my regrets.
As much as I'd love to grace you with my presence, another expensive, long haul flight is not on the cards for me anytime soon.

Linda said...

I would love to visit the Casablanca but alas can't make it to Texas in June...you probably wouldn't want some old fogie Mom there anyway...EVEN if I am WAY COOL!

Midcenturymadam said...

I love the no poodle skirt zone. Yes, please take lots of pictures. Are there many blogger friends close by? Hope so. That will be some party.

Missouri Michael said...

hmmm...I think I still have something from high school that will work well!

I love a fedora on a man...although, the only guys I've seen wearing them lately are the skateboard set. Fedoras, super-tight skinny jeans, big floppy skater shoes and FOX t-shirts don't quite do it for me!

Vintage Christine said...

Well, this ole fogey lady is sure the heck bringin' her fat ass to the Casablanca for the festivities. And I can assure you that, while I intend to dress vintage, there's no way in aich-ee-double-ell that I'm gonna wear one of those flouncy little party dresses. Me and the pup are aiming for comfort, plain and simple. Who all from the Land of Blog will be there besides me and Michael? I am SO excited to be able to meet you guys, BTW.

Vintage Christine said...

Oh and PS--is anyone else planning to visit Possum Kingdom?????

Mick said...

Chris, How did I KNOW you were gonna say that! As I was typing it Up I could hear you in my mind "YOU WANT ME TO WEAR A FRGGEN SKIRT?!" haha Its not important what you wear, just as long as you are there! :)

The Crazy Suburban Mom said...

Gosh, I so wish I could just drive there and ...well, live there actually :)

Miss CherryBubbles said...

Ooh, that sounds like so much fun - wish I lived closer! Love the "no poodle skirts" - lol. All the other outfits are swell ;) Looking forward to pics!

cheetahvelour said...

Hee hee!! No poodle skirt, promise!

On June 19th can we post pictures of what we'd wear if we were there? ;)

Amy said...

cool! what a buzz!

Mick said...

Cheata id strong encourage that! In fact if you would like to come and cant make it, why not take a picture of yourself in a vintage outfit (go to walmart print it out) Sign it with a sharpie and mail it to me, I'll make a spot for them in the decorations so you can all be there in spirit!

Cheetah Velour said...

What a great idea! I'll send a picture- who else is in??
