this is the best costume for the day

my friend caroline threw a fantastically staunch grey gardens party last night, complete with dinner served from pie tins, flowers in cat food containers, ice cream eaten with knives and dancing with flags.

Nope. I reject this on the grounds that this much awesome can not be contained under one roof. Did you have "pate"?

What a fabulous party idea! I don't think the treasure trove that is Grey Gardens/Little Edie has been fully mined yet, and this is a brilliant stroke in that direction.
