The Bloglandia Ball - Wednesday, September 26, 2007

The day of the Bloglandia Ball has arrived! I think this will be a lovely dress to wear. It will also look nice in the garden as you can see below. It is just a perfect dress to dance in and be comfortable. I especially love the petticoat! Below is the dress I had to put aside...I do love it.....but the silver sparkly stuff at the neck and on the arms was just a little "itchy". I don't want to be fidgeting in my ball gown! What? You have nothing to wear? Well...you could probably pull something together if you really tried. Run over to Eb's and see what the others are wearing....I'm sure you'll look fine.

but i think the blue is my favorite...
[naturally, you are right...

I am so happy to meet you Linda, the peekaboo pleats caught my eye right away.I love details! Definitely evokes dancing in the garden. I can understand not wanting to be itchy, that won't do when you are trying to sway effortlessly under the moon. (although it IS lovely too)

Stephanie said...

Sandra Evertson said...

Linda, I can only echo what others said about your clever peeking petticoats, since I am not the first to post! lol Have another drink and you won't care about itchy clothing! Fashion divas must make occasional sacrifices! Heehee!

They're both lovely - but yes, when you're dancing you definitely don't want itchy!
Wonderful to meet you - save me a dance!
