Cyber ball

I've been invited to a cyber ball at Willow Manor.


As I didn't have a date, my Aunt called her friend Agatha, who said her nephew Bertram would be happy to escort me. A blind date with Bertie Wooster....oh dear!


But I do have this marvelous ball gown


not to mention these pretty earrings


Perhaps I can talk Bertie into dancing with me to Hernando's Hideaway.....


Wish me well!

I like Hernandos Hideaway!

That gown is gorgeous, I've never worn anything so classy before. I hope you have a fun time with Bertie.

Hey Harriet said...

Have fun at the ball with Bertie! You'll look smashing in that gown :)

First of all, your gown is to DIE for!!! Where on earth did you find it? I'm green with envy! And what an unusual choice for a date! Hernando's Hideaway...how FUN! Let's dance! :)

Bertie is a lucky man, you are going to be a knock out in that gown. Enjoy dancing the night away at the cyber ball :)

Bertie Wooster...oh dear!

I heard her tried to get frisky at last week's cotillion and his date was his own cousin, Maud Hennings. I'm afraid in a fancy get up such as your own, you will be spending the evening fighting Bertie's frisky mitts.

Wishing you well, indeed!

Rachel,

I know. Bertie Wooster. Maybe my dance card will get filled up with all the other dashing men at the ball:
Hugh Grant, Johnny Depp, Cary Grant, Kevin Costner, Fred Astaire, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart....it seems everyone is there!

High Desert Diva said...

Willow,

The dress is from www.antiquedress.com

Vintage, of course :-) Happily, since this is all cyber, it fits perfectly!

I hope you are having a wonderful time! That dress is amazing

Mrs.French said...

I agree...the outfit ensures a perfect evening. *)

Victoria said...

You will be the bell of the ball in that dress!
(And I hope Bertie behaves himself!)

Lovely gown, diva! I hope you had a ball at the ball! I know I did, I went as Joel Grey from Cabaret with lovely, darling Liza perched on my arm!

You got any cyber-hangover :-)?

Greetings from London.
