a gown for wendy...!


As many of you know, our dear Wendy is going to The Emmy's this August and I will have the glorious opportunity to meet our beautiful New Zealander....In fact she will be staying just down the hill from me where one hopes there will be power! (lol)

Anyway, sweet dear Wendy has been looking for a dress for 'The Red Carpet', and the wonderful Mystery Lady started this campaign and contest to help our Wendy find a dress....I think this Beautiful 'Southern Belle Dress' is perfect for her...And I hope Wendy will think it's perfect, too...

If you want to play this fun game of finding a dress for Wendy, go to The Mystery Lady's site and find out what to do....

So here is my choice. I think it is elegant and gracious just like our very special Wendy. What do you think?

Good choice of gown and a gorgeous colour too :-) Hope your power is now back for good. It sounded like you were having a really bad time of it.

I wish Nyssa would pick something like that for her formals. Only drawback she would see is that it is "too poofy". It is good that she wasn't living in Mississippi in the 1800's. She tried the hoop skirts one year to help in the Pilgrimage but never mastered the art of sitting in one. WAHAHAHAHA! The hoop always came up and smacked her in the face! (Smacking hand...bad momma to laugh at distraught child) WAAHAHAHAHAHA! Just couldn't help it.

Lovely, indeed. I just put up a few I absolutely fell in love with....of course I am more into the vintage look, so mine are a little different than what others are choosing. Imagine that!

Has Wendy seen this gown? It's awesome. I think she'll love it. Will be posting mine tomorrow.

You have excellent taste, Naomi!
This would be my choice for sure! Elegant, feminine and beautiful...all the qualities for a gown.

I vote for that one, Naomi. It reminds me of a magenta peau-de-soie ball gown I had in college. I never got a photo of me in that dress, unfortunately. It was the stuff princesses wear and it looked a lot like this one. I love it.

had this to say:

Its lovely!! I really love the way the back laces up, rather like an old fashioned corset. I'm glad I don't have to pick the gown because I've seen many lovely ones posted around!

Picking out a lovely gown is such fun this way. I dread going shopping these days! In addition to vicarious shopping I am vicariously enjoying looking so fabulous in my new gown.
Please don't hate me Naomi! LOL
Looking orward to vicariously seeing you at the Emmy's...

I think she would alslo have to go dancing in this one. It's beautiful. Thanks for stopping by!

That is absolutely beautiful. I am constantly amazed at how something as seemingly simple as a dress can be raised to high art.

How lucky you are that you will be able to meet Wendy when she comes to town. How cool is that that she's going to the Emmys!

I feel like royalty-by-proxy as I read this.

I'm praying your power holds out, Naomi. Your hill needs power so you can connect with the rest of the world and convince us that there's still goodness on this planet.

It's a tall order. You're up to it.

That is beautiful, I have to say though I am just getting more and more confused about which one to pick ( virtually that is lol)
With the real thing, I doubt I will get anything quite that gorgeous.
We DON'T get to go to any after parties basically we are shunted quickly down the red carpet, we sit for the actual awards ceremony and then we get dumped back at our hotel.
Sad but true lol.

This is so beautiful and almost brought me tears...remembering the dress I made for my daughter for her senior prom...the lace up back and poof...it is an excellent choice..

Thanks for visiting my blog and gracing it with your kind words....

I love the dress you chose for Wendy. It reminds me of the dress that Belle wears in Beauty and the Beast.
Very pretty!!

I can't believe I said that about the fans!! I forgot that you can't run fans without electricity. I had a major brain fart on that one!!!!

Love the dress. It's perfect.

Of course, my opinion may be skewed. My therapist has asked me to stop wearing them.
