day 4: star
My friend Chris and I visited Hollywood today and saw lots of stars, but this was the only one I could find to bring home. The air was dry, the rooms dark and packed with people. The costumes were fabulous, romantic and inspiring. So many wonderful frocks - and Errol Flynn's Robin Hood costume was pretty nifty too. Chris told me that Scarlett O' Hara's dress, the one made from dark green curtains, had inspired her to do the same with some gold velvet curtains from a pub she worked in. The customers admired the outfit when she wore it, but with puzzlement - they could not work out what was familiar about it. The wonder of Hollywood.
In my tacky heart I really wanted to come home with Dorothy's red slippers but had to make do with my cheap star.
