I've been busy the last few days preparing for the cyber event of the year: the second annual Willow Manor Ball. Although I didn't attend this event last year, I've heard that it's pretty fancy and I was delighted to be invited.
The ball takes place at the Willow Manor blog. You can visit Willow Manor at: http://www.willowmanor.blogspot.com/
Of-course I've been to the salon, the spa, the jewelry store, and had several fittings with a seamstress who did some minor alterations on my vintage gown, but I think I'm all set.
I can't wait to slip into my ball gown with the crushed velvet bodice and long sleeves. I love the color, and it seems just the right thing for a crisp October night.
I've also selected some lovely jewels: a diamond necklace and earrings, to add some shimmer.
My escort, BB, will be wearing a tuxedo, a la Marlene Dietrich, perfectly tailored just for her, and we'll be motoring down to the Manor from Detroit in our classic 1939 Cadillac Fleetwood.
