Hmmmm...i HAVE always been partial to "Mirabelle". Don't know why that particular print appeals to me!

My mom used to wear Lanz nightgowns as party dresses in the 60's and 70's. Like this one: http://forums.ebay.com/db2/topic/Clothing-Shoes-Accessories/Lanz-Of-Salzburg/510259025 Some girls did that with the original Laura Ashley slips, petticoats and nightdresses, too.

@ Steffani RE: "Ahhh '80s Victorian revival! This is so much like the styles little Victorian/Edwardian era girls wore...Ann of Green Gables would be in heaven! But why oh why would a grown woman wear anything like this? Blech." At least one other grown woman did: http://www.altfg.com/Stars/w/what-ever-happened-to-baby-jane-bette-davis-1.jpg

Very, very pretty. I love soft aqua shades. Can't wait to see which Liberty print you picked out for it, too.

Blonde may also be giving Brunette tips on how to walk a straight line. It could be an office party.

Cookie here! Could she be peering through a highball glass? (I think it's her second.) The lampshade-on-the-head bit will happen next.

My favorite white for trim is called "Pot of Cream" (thank god it's not called "Pot O Cream", or I'd see the Lucky Charmz leprechaun hopping about), and it goes well with their wall color "Innocence", which is a yellower cream that looks very restful with it. They also make a beautiful pale green that isn't cloying, called "Relaxing Green".

Re: "So the question is why is this particular case so bothersome to them?" Mmm, perhaps because the restriction or removal of a minorities' civil rights for no discernable purpose is viewed as abhorrent by enlightened people?
I can't figure out if Agent Daffodil is wearing a scarf, or 10 strands of pearls. This dress should look better than it does. The "accent" of the bold belt is kind of abrupt, and I hate those stiff fabrics that stand up on their own. But I like where the dress is GOING...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HOLLY! Everyone needs at least one dress like this! Sarah has to post a link to a party pic after the holidays : ) (Am trying this after logging onto my spare facebook account...I miss my avatar! signed - - - Cookie)
