Good morning, hope you had a wonderful weekend. We had true fall weather here, it actually got cold enough to put the heater on! But I am loving every minute. Had a visitor, my sons football game, a little retail therapy and a Halloween party that I would love to show a few pictures of (with the hostess permission of course) because she was so darn clever in how she did everything..it was beautiful! Hope your week is off to a great start, I am starting to feel the subtle pressures of the? H word…..yes the “holidays”. When someone told me a few days ago only 80 more days till Christmas, I nearly fell off my chair. So much for being done by Nov. 1st. I had vowed to have a Christmas party but now I feel the window of opportunity in planning one slipping away. Just thinking of it and finding a date that works for most suddenly feels overwhelming. Between family coming in, and a few parties we already know about…..there seems to be little time. So….I am thinking about a post Christmas party. I think its actually a really great idea…because you know that anti climatic feeling of once the hoopla of the holidays are over….and everything just feels flat and gloomy? So how fun to have a party to liven things up….one more excuse to dress up in your holiday best. So..that’s my latest plan! Speaking of parties we are invited to a very splashy affair in November. I have a gorgeous gown that’s been in my closet for years that I have only worn twice so am going with that, but I always enjoy pursuing the options just to imagine what I might buy if I was in the market. I always love seeing what Marchesa is up to. So today’s Which would you choose is you get to select a gown for a big shindig……which most appeals to you? Not an easy decision……..so put on your thinking caps! CHOICE 1 CHOICE 2 CHOICE 3 CHOICE 4 CHOICE 5 CHOICE 6 CHOICE 7 CHOICE 8 CHOICE 9 ?CHOICE 10 ? ?CHOICE 11 CHOICE 12 CHOICE 13 CHOICE 14 CHOICE 15 CHOICE 16 Wow…these are definitely show stopper “look at me entering the room” kind of dresses, don’t you think? I look forward to seeing which comes out on top! A lot of you like to know the results of these Which would you choose posts, I used to post them then stopped but will do it again. So next post I will be sure to share the top three. And I had no idea Georgina was designing the most scrumptious handbags to go with her dreamy party frocks…did you?
