For a little jaunt up to Hollywood, only a dress heavily inspired by the best agent in the SSR Peggy Carter would do! Did you think I meant a different kind of agent? :) I picked up the required navy and lipstick red cotton sateen from my local Joanns and got to work. Since I had never been up to Griffith Park, let alone the observatory, and the show had actually shot scenes there for season 2, that's just where I headed to try and catch some views of LA and get photos of this dress.
Unfortunately it was rather a hazy day in Los Angeles and the views were clouded in mist. The Hollywood sign was still clearly visible so I snatched a few touristy photos with the sign in the background. It was fun to be in Hollywood again, even if only for a day. For those who don't know I spent my freshman year of college at a small school in Burbank called Woodbury University. So I lived in Burbank/North Hollywood for just under a year at age 18 (not something I recommend!). It's too bad I hadn't yet gotten into old movies back then, think of the fun I could have had running around town! I'd still love to catch a screening at the Egyptian on Hollywood Boulevard someday :)
Now that I'm back in Colorado the weather has decided to punish me for my summery California sojourn. The blizzard today was so fierce that schools and businesses all had to close and I couldn't go to work! At least I got the day to unpack and do some laundry. I'm already missing that California sunshine, it won't take much convincing to get me to plan another trip back...
