Fashion Show: Dress to Impress

At Lieberman today a "Fashion Show: Dress to Impress" took place in the community room. Approximately two dozen residents, both men and women, dressed themselves up beautifully in anticipation of walking the red carpet runway. Staff were also decked out in their finest evening wear and high heels. Some fifty other residents became the appreciative audience.

Below are photos of Gregory all dressed up. Manny got him dressed up in a pair of kaki's, with real shoes, and a soft black polo top. I dropped a tear or two because it has been a long time since I have seen Gregory dressed like the "olden days" as compared to his usual sweat pants and long sleeved T.

Manny is always so loving and caring and went to a lot of trouble to have Gregory shining for his runway debut including buying him the new black shirt. I added the handmade rainbow silk scarf which was a gift from Susan Tillett and the top hat which was purchased from the Lyric Opera of Chicago "Garage Sale" last year.

It was decided that Gregory looked like something out of "Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory," "Dr. Seuss," or "Alice in Wonderland's Mad-hatter Tea Party!"
