The Willow Ball And Happy Birthday to Willow!

 My gown is black denim.

 Shoes a practical high-top sneaker.
 My jewels all of a Navaho flavor.


 My date is my long-time friend old pajamas.  He's a poet and fisherman.  His latest book of poems is  the recently published Drenched Through At Old Age.

 I have brought along my paints, brushes and pallet and will paint your portrait if you like.  Find me in a quiet corner at Willow Manor for a memento of the occasion.

oops I published my outfit early as blogger said I had an error and I wanted to see if it would work! The ball is not until Sunday.

on the other hand I must admit to always being early for everything. and i have a long ride, on horseback. So it'll take a few days.

I love your Gown, your Jewelry and of course, *Opp*! Will meet you in the corner to toast with Champagne. I've *sent* Tess five cases of Krug-Brut 1988 Champagne for her hostess gift!
I will be honoured to have you do my portrait with my dates! I'll be posting my info tonight! (No opera..)

Love,

♥ Robin ♥

This is too funny! :) Going in style I see - a wonderful eclectic blend. Your date looks slightly familiar, maybe he's been "in our dreams." :)
Have FUN :)

Love what you are wearing and your 'date' is yummy. Hope you don't leave your 'slipper' behind, or maybe you should- and meet your prince!

I love how everyone's eyes were diverted to you, when you waltzed into the ballroom at the Manor. You carry yourself with such grace, like you are floating.... a very elegant whisper......

What an interesting combination of fabrics and colours you are wearing. Such a splash of hues you're adding to our concentric eccentric Ball!

Definitely one of the most refreshing, unique looks this year! My kind of style out here on Oregon's high desert.

Suki, I love all your picks. For the life of me I don't know how you all have the time to do this :-). I know I do not. Have fun though and glad you had a good trip.
