Sitting on the Dock of the Bay.....

...waiting for the party to begin...

ummmm, wonder where I'm seated, and where are YOU ?
hopefully, close by as we will have so much to talk about.

what would you wear to this event?

seriously, tell me please.

I think it is held during the daylight hours 
because the chance of the waiters falling off the dock
 are pretty high when balancing trays above their heads if it is dark
but, of course, the chairs would come up a tiny bit I suppose.

I would probably wear something like this little white number,
with tons tons tons of jewelry, maybe turquoise/aquamarine,
and with LOW or FLAT shoes with rubber or non-slip soles.

only handbag would be for my cell phone & lipstick,
 nothing bulky or having to sit on the floor.

so small spaces surrounded by water do not thrill me.

Banana Republic Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear

years ago, literally years ago, we were invited aboard a luxury cruise ship
docked in Galveston, Texas, as part of their inaugural weekend when
they began cruising from that port.

beautiful dinner, 5-6 courses, all sorts of entertainment, etc.

when we were ready to disembark I learned we had to walk down a narrow & hellishly steep
gangway with ridges to get off the ship.
what a nightmare for us women who all had on high high heels.
I took mne off, otherwise I would have remained on board for the entire cruise.


website almost up & running
big big thank you to Shari of Little Blue Deer

be perfect & easy to navigate.

lots of new jewelry & handbags coming



  1. What an amazing setting. Thank you for sharing, I am so glad to meet you. I am so excited to find and follow new special places. I will follow on my way out because I am sure I will enjoy engaging and supporting your special place now I have found you. I hope you will find some time to come visit me soon. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

  2. Wonderful ambiance here - and I agree, a little (or long) white number with a little wrap and definitely flats .. or maybe a tiny little wedge - no heels for me!

  3. Wow! what a gorgeous place to eat al-fresco!
    I too would wear white and lots of bangles and turquoise jewelry; boho-chic I think ;-)

  4. What a beautiful setting! Should I be invited to attend, I'd wear white as well. A white sheath dress with my new matte gold earrings (from you!) :) and an arm full of bracelets. I am going to borrow your idea of a small handbag and I'm leaving my cell at home. I don't want anything to interrupt or disturb my experience!

    Ahh...back to work now. What a lovely disruption.

  5. Well, I have you back on the side bar at last.
    Tried for 3 days now. I am wearing your Tourquise necklace and white pant suit with a halter top. To this fabulous dinner on the bay.

  6. What a party! I'd probably wear a cute floral dress with flats and lots of gems :)

  7. So wonderful! I love the gentleness of this post. A party on the water? Perfect!
