New Year's Eve Party & Remembrances....

(via The Fuller View (thefullerview) on Pinterest)

if I were invited to a masked ball I wonder what I would wear?

the entire evening created to celebrate friendship and the ending of one year and beginning
of the next year

(via grey)

you imagine you will see many splendid outfits, people and that the tables will be
laden with silver...

(via silver)

this is an evening where the finest jewelry may be worn and be appropriate

(via grey)

there will be photographers catching the glamourous ones as they pass in & out the doors

Angelina Colarusso Rococo.

miles of tulle, goddess gowns will be seen,
beautiful pearls in abundance are so elegant

(via ivory)

twinkling lights enchant everyone, everything is adorned with them

(via The Fuller View (thefullerview) on Pinterest)

will I see Mary Kate or Ashley?

everything burnished and shining

(via The Fuller View (thefullerview) on Pinterest)

the well-knowns will be out and we hope to catch a glimpse

Pppffff! Yes.

what handbag will I carry?
what shoes will I wear?
how will I do my hair?

everyone laughing

& dancing dancing dancing

oh, the endless glamour of the never-to-be-forgotten evening

(via The Fuller View (thefullerview) on Pinterest)

making us think of endless glamour of times past

the truly elegant and gracious

the happiest and most beautiful couple of them all

no matter where we go on New Year's Eve, hold on tight to those you love,
embrace the adventure of life, and pray for a 2013 where wisdom will prevail,
starting out with our own.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, my precious friends !!

stay well, stay happy

Formal is lovely!!!!
It teaches the young!!

I grew up with "black tie" dinner parties every Friday night in our beautiful dining room!!! In Pasadena California!!

Just so you hear what I was taught:
"Black tie". is what it is called!! (On an invitation)

Better yet: "dinner jacket"!!

(if asked "what to wear!")

god forbid "tuxedo"; YIKES!!!!!!

Worst of the worst?

"Tux"!!!!! EEEEK !!!!!

That will send me around the bend !!!!

Dearest readers! Teach your children and yourselves!!!!

No "tux"!!!!
