grease lightening!

On June 24, some of my girlfriends and I will be attending the 2nd Annual Grease Sing-A-Long at the Hollywood Bowl I have loved this movie from the age of 6. My mother says that I danced down the aisle when the movie came out in 1978 and I remember putting the two album soundtrack on the record player repeating every song. 

A long time has passed but I am the same giddy kid in love with the same summer luvin story. When I think of the movie Grease I want to be a Pink Lady, which one is to be determined. But a decision must be made soon cuz I am making my Grease ensemble to be sure!

In the mean time a lot has come onto my plate. I have been given an amazing opportunity to contribute my business card to a friends product in a celebrity swag bag. Wow. Of course this calls for a photo extravaganza and some new postings for My Etsy shop. I just recently met some awesome new folks on the same page and path and became an insider to one of my favorite summer arts series. And equally exciting, a new curvy bloggers luncheon invitation spurred me to go for it and attend NYC Full Figured Fashion Week. Plane ticket bought and can't wait to meet, engage and learn from other curvy fashion lovers, writers and designers. 

These opportunities have come quickly and while I am still working on new merchandise and original designs. I have had to step up and I am proud of myself for doing so. Opportunity knocks and I for the first time in a long time, I am ready and waiting. The last week has definitely felt like grease lightning.

Keeping up with all that is still scary a happy challenge, but more importantly, what to wear!?
