The Grand Bloglandia Ball


When I heard there was going to be a Bloglandia ball, I knew I had to find the perfect dress!

What about a gorgeous whisper of pink or folds & folds of silk to create
such dramatic sleeves

maybe an ode to the ball gown master
Mr Lacroix, who gave us the bubble skirt - perfect if you're feeling bloated or gassy huh?....

Hair in a silk scarf? or a simple but long faux plait to tone it all down? maybe hair in a sky high beehive? now that would be fun!

Thanks Elizabeth for being such a wonderful host!!

* Illustrations by me ( inspired by Vogue....)
* Paper dress by me
* Lace mask girl from Australian Harpers Bazaar
* other photos from Italia Vogue Haute Couture supp.
