Tasting the stars...

Months ago, it was decided that we would have a Champagne Breakfast to celebrate the end of high school forever. It went down without a hitch (or even a spill). The theme: favourite childhood characters. Initially, I was desperate to dress-up as Veruka Salt of Willa Wonka & the Chocolate Factory fame (being a bit of a brat myself, I adored her growing up). Alas, the costume shop did not stock this sort of costume. So I decided on Cinderella, a character I didn't have any strong emotional ties to, growing up, but the costume was too cute to pass up.

Me (in blue).

In case there was any curiosity as to what I look like...

Me and my baby Hannah (as Hello Kitty).

Resting after drinking the morning away. Classy, eh?


Favourite childhood characters?

You look lovely! I can't think of my favourite childhood character now..but as a child in the 1980s, I really liked She-Ha, the cartoon..lol no way I'd ever dress like her!

HeatherClark said...

what a fun thing to do! great way to celebrate.

re Wolfman..I actually quite liked it. It is a bit gorey and definitely one of those movies where the character is wandering by themselves in silence so you are just waiting for them to jump out. But it was a cool story and I adore Emily Blunt so I enjoyed it.

Too cute...I would've dressed as a Willy Wonka character also-maybe Augustus Gloop, as I'm a chronic choc eater?

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like the mix of yurs, so I'll def be back to check in!

adorable. just out of curiosity, who is the guy in the fuzzy purple hat supposed to be? it looks so funny!

Romany said...

Thank you for all of your beautiful comments, you made my day! :)
Definitely give a Champagne Breakfast a go, it's such a fun way to celebrate any occasion, especially if it's dress-up (I love lil mermaid too, bijoubijou, ariel was just the best).
AttemptingStyle, fuzzy hat guy (my friend Matt) is the mad hatter and the girl next to him (his girlfriend Steff) is Alice in Wonderland. Haha.

Seriously so much fun.
Have a lovely day, all of you!
