I’m back from an exciting and hectic trip to PA for the 3rd annual Francaise Dinner. Between flight delays, long drives, and inclement weather, the trip ended up being more stressful than I had planned, but I still had a wonderful time with friends and it was great to see everyone dressed in their best finery!
My new brocade francaise had it first outing, and on the whole I’m happy with how it turned out. It could use a few tweaks, but for now it’s good. I accessorized with a new blue paste parure from Dames a la Mode
(I’m not one to resist new shiny), and its simplicity complimented the dress perfectly. I even got to wear earrings for the first time! I don’t have pierced ears, but Taylor offers most of her styles in clip-ons, meaning I now can have a full jewelry set. I find this way more exciting than I probably should.
Even more exciting is the fact that I will get to wear this dress again in less than two weeks! I will be attending the upcoming millinery conference in Williamsburg, and I plan to squeeze in at least one dress up evening while I’m there. I’m really looking forward to the conference and I hope to see some of you there!
