Gowns ... and a Bloggers Ball !

If you were going to dress up for a bloggers ball
-
Would you wear a vintage dress of tulle and lace
-
The green or pale blue?
-

or ... wear a fur stole and large brimmed hat with feathers?
-
-
Or an elegant black velvet dress with white chiffon?
-
These are just some of my choices for tonights event,
as I've a collection of thrift store gowns,
vintage hats
and way too much costume jewelry
( if there is a 'too much' )
-
My friend Lynette and I always enjoy an excuse
to get dressed up
put on some glitz and glam
and PLAY dress-up
-
So tonights Bloggers Ball
an event of
Ruffles and Rust
~ A Vintage Market to Inspire ~
-
Is just the excuse we need!
(click here to read about this event)
-
Lynette is going to wear a luscious yellow tulle-skirted gown
and a tiara
(of course!)
-
Me ~ undecided thus far
but I'm seriously considering the black and white
dress with a large brimmed
"Audrey" hat
and
p e a r l s
-
-
Which gown would you wear?

Well.... I went with the black velvet with white chiffon dress, and a black bead-studded pillbox hat with huge feathers pinned off to one side. I took my little camera in my vintage evening bag... only to discover the batteries were dead! So many things I wanted to share here, so many women wearing fabulous gowns! Many photos were taken by others so hopefully I will find some of the blogs and get some of the photos to share!
