To Do: Black & White Ball

To Do: Black & White Ball

It’s hard to believe the Black & White Ball is only 2 weeks away! It seems like the whole city has gala-fever. Each morning, I pass the Macy’s window full of black and white gowns on my walk to work. Last night, Nicole and I went vintage gown shopping on Haight Street and so many people were on the same mission.

My custom-made dress is coming together nicely. I had a fitting last night with the actual satin (the one previously was a prototype in oh-so-lovely orange-striped muslin). Here’s a sneak preview:

There’s still a good amount of finishing work to be done with my next two fittings, but it’s coming together! I think I’ll have my hair done in a slightly-retro updo.  Diamond starburst earrings, silver slippers. Do you think I should wear long black gloves?

    Yes, love the long gloves idea. Go for it. Very sixties.

    I vote yes for the gloves. And please, please wear a hat if only for the grand entry.
