Or The Scarlet Woman !

Isnt She Elegant  ? thank you Donna .

It suddenly occured to me last night ,for the Red carpet walk I should start to think about my outfit ,so with much to-ing and fro-ing across the atlantic ,emails ,containing advice from Dianna  SazzyLilSmartAzz suggesting places to look for an ensemble ~So Jeannette (travels)and I went on a cyber shopping trip ,hence Donna's lovely graphic ,we had to take a break and have a capachino and ciggy ,I love her choice and she approved of mine, assuring me it didnt make my bum look big ,Ifind American sizes are different to ours ,I would wear a twelve here ,but a size six US size would fit me ,the cost of the dress is $140.00,I have no idea how much that is in Stirling ,Stuart specimen days told me Sterling is in Scotland.... erm right thanks dear ,I wanted to know how many pounds I've spent ...you know ££££'s I am numericaly challenged ,I had the same problem with euros (not even sure if I've spelt it right ) when we were in Ireland.......Dont know why I'm whaffling on about cost its all fantasy anyway ....

 Do you like  it ?The accsessories are the colour of this script ,,the shoes and bag that is ,Silver jewellery ,,I shall be wearing 'Joy' perfume ,and Chris De Bergh  has promised to sing 'Lady in Red 'as I make my entrance ... Hope you all find the outfit you are looking for .....have a good evening everyone

Janxx

Thankyou Donna for beginning and ending my entry so delightfully today ........

Nice dress Jan, but you'll disappear when walking down the red carpet! $140 = £78  but who's counting? B. x

Hi Jan,  Gorgeous dress and shoes, and Joy perfume....do you know just how much that costs!!!  I have several pairs of shoes and a few bags but no dress just yet.  I must go to a few more designer shops. I`m going to push the boat out for this one...lol! :o)

Couple of days ago the exchange rate was around 2 dollars to be pound.  Well, one dollar, ninety cents to be exacty.  Very nice outfit.  Me - I am a "come as you are" person.

I am a bit confused, where you off to and why aren't you taking me? LOL! All well this end - kids doing my head in a bit. Physio was awful and i feel about 90 today, hopefully will get more movement in a couple of days and then guess what - i go back for some more. See you soon. Love to Pops and you too, Crazy lady.

Fabulous dress Jan, and like the look of the shoes, but couldn't walk properly in stillettoes back in the sixties so certainly couldn't now that I'm IN my sixties lol! Wonder what you will be wearing for the 'Forties' dance this evening?  Look forward to hearing all about it :-)
