Willow Manor Ball 2012

Today is the fifth annual Willow Manor Ball.  This cyber event of the year always draws a crowd.

When I heard it was a masked ball this year, I knew just who to invite as my date, as he's quite comfortable behind a mask. However, at the last minute he stood me up...something about fighting crime.  He did promise to swing by if he got done early, though.


Without an escort I thought about staying home, but I knew quite a few of my blog friends would be there.  Besides, I already had my dress picked out.  Don't you think the dark red jersey of this Donna Karan gown coordinates well with my escort's mask?


I don't think a dress like this needs a whole lot of bling. In lieu of jewelry, I'm showcasing this gold-plated Harlequin mask covered with Swarovski crystals.


If you've never been to the Willow Manor Ball before, why don't you stop by?  Everyone is invited, and the event lasts for an entire 24 hours.

    1. When I saw that Tess had chosen a red dress also I was mortified; it's never a good idea to upstage the hostess! However, I think there's enough of a crowd that it won't be too obvious.

  7. Beautiful dress. Such elegance.

    Never mind the man - you can have a couple of turns on the dance floor with Placido if you want to - if you can find him that is. He's such a charmer!

    1. Thanks for the offer, Bee. I'll be on the lookout for Placido. Maybe if I'm lucky he'll sing in my ear while we're dancing.

  10. Oh, the dress so elegantly drapes and floats upon the floor! And at the Willow Manor Ball, you will never trip. I have a man who LOVES to dance and sing... and I'm sharing him as I must eat all the fries and ketchup I can tonight (something I NEVER eat at any other time).

    1. Margaret, thank you so much! As I seem to have been completely stood up, I'll be "borrowing" as many dance partners as I can.

  11. You're absolutely right; less is indeed more, when you're wearing such an elegant dress. Has Spidey shown up yet?
