Oh The Glitter and The Glamour!

Last night was our neighborhood Progressive Dinner.  If you don't know what a progressive dinner is, it is when everyone meets at someones house for appetizers, then people move on to different houses for dinner and gather back together at another house for dessert.  We hosted the dessert portion of the dinner here.
I have to say that you never know what people are going to wear to this event, but last night everyone outdid themselves!  Most everyone was Red Carpet Worthy!!!  It was so much fun to see people dressed in fabulous clothing and looking oh so glam!
I decided to pull out a dress I wore to a black tie wedding in Mexico a couple of years ago.  Heck, I had only worn the darn thing once before.

Here is my look from last night's party.





I know you are dying to know...
my shoes stayed on all night and I even danced in them!!!
Thanks to Joy and Linda for their great suggestions for keeping those babies on my feet!





You can't tell, but I do have a pattern on my hose.



How great is that stoll??  It was my grandmothers.  I inherited it when she passed away.  It has just been sitting in my closet waiting for the trend to make a comeback.
If you like the hair and make-up here is where to go to learn how to do it.

You all are too sweet with your compliments.
It was fun to dress up as I rarely get to do it.

Terri, I didn't do the desserts. People from the neighborhood brought them!

Joy, if you invite them.... they will come!
