I told people I was going to wear a hat, a feathered head dress, an adornment on my head...whatever.
Turns out it's really called a "Facinator".
They're all the rage in Europe, so I've heard. It was definitely a hit last night, as different people took turns wearing it. I bet we'll see more and more of these cutsie things as the fad catches on.
Love this dress. First of all, I got it at Winners (similar to TJ Max in the States) which means it was extremely reasonable in price. Then, with a homemade crinoline, it got all swishy and swirly...great for dancing.
For those of us with a shoe fetish, these are the very best. I pull them out on State and Holy occasions.
The celebration was in honour of a 25th wedding anniversary of good friends. There was much feasting, red wine, chocolate, speeches, pranks and general hilarity--a good time was had by all.
Don't you just love to dress up? What about dancing? Do you? Does your partner?
