Hogwarts Sugar Plum Flurries Gala / Yule Ball

Sunday, December 08, 2013

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???

Don’t see anything you like? Then make your own with YOUR dream shoes!

On to the photos. I am so indecisive. I am DEFINITELY doing the green and black ensemble for the dinner.

After that, I might be a gown changing FOOL! emoticon

I like the simplicity of the hairstyle and I will add hair adornments as shown. I love that many of these pieces are interchangable with the various gowns making the changes more seamless!

I know that the Headmistress was very precise in the style and type and this does not fit the rules for the clutch, but I do so love it. Kind of edgy...

This is my date. I conjured him up.

I am also considering bringing my muggle husband for the dance because his uniform is just made for that red gown! emoticon

    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!! emoticon 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! emoticon

    OMG! That beige/white (can't really tell what color it is) is absolutely stunning, so is the red. Those would be my 2 choices. As for your choice of dates . . . COUNT ME IN ON THAT ONE! LOL

    Have a fabulous time.

    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*
