December is full of parties, dates and galas. I normally don’t enjoy shopping for the big events because I am on a budget.
I got married by a ship captain 9 years ago on Christmas Eve. I wore a RED gown and carried a winter bouquet of red/white and green with roses and holly. This shopping adventure makes me think of that time. We are planning our 10th anniversary this time next year and I will be the lady in red then too!
This time the sky is the limit as we have been instructed to selected 3-5 gowns, all the accessories, hair and makeup to attend the Winter Term Hogwarts Sugar Plum Flurries Gala/Yule Ball.
I am a member of Slytherin house and that is reflected in my first choice that I will wear to the sit-down dinner.
My second and third choices (I am a Libra; decisions come slowly) are for the dance.
Have you seen/heard of Rene’ Caovola glitter souled shoes???
Taylor Swift wore René Caovilla peep-toe pumps to the 2013 Golden Globes! I love the DIY idea!! Your RED is just heart-stopping MagiKal but I know you'll *stop* a whole lotta' hearts (give a few neck whiplash) in anything you choose. What a *romantic* time of the year for you!! I wish the two of you all the *B*E*S*T* in happiness and your future goals! mmm... wear the RED, it's your *signature* color. Oh! and on the clutch ... who cares! it's classy and a bit daring. I say, go for it!! LOL!! If you're dancing with your DH, I'll take your conjure. 1262 days ago
WOW!! Your "Slytherin" shoes are AMAZING!! I wonder if they got the idea from the Harry Potter movies. And your wedding on the ship - how romantic!! Maybe for your 10th anniversary, you guys can renew your vows on another ship and take photos to share, of course. I am also in the Slytherin house and am having a lot of fun with this activity. And your date? I think he knows my date! 1266 days ago
I think you should be wear the red, since it's clearly a color you love and have fantastic memories of and it suits the holiday *grin* Though the white is also beautiful. I can see why you are torn. And you definitely should go with your hubby *grin* 1266 days ago
