There is always a great experience gained from travel, especially when it’s to far off places. This time, the place isn’t too far off, being in the middle of the US, but the experience is more interesting than many past short distance travels as it has taken me to a state that is quite ensconced in its own traditions and styles that easily make it unique and very interesting.

I’m in Dallas, Texas and have a position that requires a lot of study and lots of travel, but more on that in upcoming installments. 

Since I’ve been away from LA, I’ve seen vintage clothing expert Marc Chevalier take up the charge of the LA Tweed Pub Crawl. This one approaching will be the 4th in the line and one not to be missed as they tend to get bigger and bigger each year. Take your tweed and some comfortabke shoes.

It begins at 7:00 pm.
I believe it's beginning at that place where I've had many a French Dip Sandwich, Cole's in Downtown LA.

I'll attend if I can make the trip work with my schedule.

Locally, I’ve joined forces with Matt Tolentino, Danielle Bennignus, and Tom Pecina to form the Art Deco Society of Dallas. The center of the Art Deco scene in the the Americas (Geographically speaking). 
Event-wise we've already successfully shown to a large audience, Top Hat from 1937 starring Fred and Ginger at the Texas Theater... this was fallowed by a grand concert from the Singapore Slingers. Many more events are to follow including a good old (new) knickerbocker mini golf later this month. 

Anywho, that's a quick latest filler for the blog. Now to get back to rifling through piles of cloth, felt and ribbon.

From Dallas, Sometimes Manhattan and now and again LA, but wishing more often Paris... I'll see you soon.

I believe there is a hangar dance out here that I am to attend.
