If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

V- Vintage

I had chosen a different topic originally until I learned a new word: Fascinator. My home town just came up with a page called Casper Fasinators. It's women, they get dressed up with their fascinators and head out on the town either to symphony, movies, out for drinks, whatever. The point is to have a reason to do something fun and dress up. I'm totally getting involved.

What is a fascinator? It's a vintage hair accessory that women used to wear all the time which are now evidently making a come back.

Vintage- the word alone creates all sorts of ideas add Fascinators and bam I'm curious and my mind is spinning. LOL

I do love a good fascinator. I always make sure to get a new one each year for the Melbourne Cup.

The Fascinator reminds me of the look of the movies from the 1940's. Great topic. I wish all the ladies lots of fun!

For me Vintage is something old , becoming something new. Fascinators are definitely intriguing. Not sure I'd wear one myself though.(Hugs) Indigo

Vintage is my favorite. Especially if it involves the 1920s-1940s.
