When Blissie first opened this blog she asked me to be a contributor. I agreed not knowing exactly what to expect. Then I started noting those wonderful fashion-minded folks whose company I have the pleasure and high honor of being in for this blog. I have watched and read enthusiastically what each of you have had to say and look at the loveliness you have displayed. I however, have felt unworthy of adding to the excellence here. I have been continuously seeking out something that I could post here.
Last week, I finally had something thrust at me so to speak. West Of Ireland was having an auction to benefit Project Children. I saw a couple dresses and a set of pearls that i wanted to bid on, and did. All the items were by Icings. Oh yeah!! On Sunday I arrived for the end of the auction and was bidding against a gentleman for this one retro black and white dress. I let him have it as my eye was on another, rarer gem.
This delightful cocktail dress was labeled as a one of a kind down to the very color which was designed especially for this auction number. I had been out bid, but then upped my bid by another 1000L. The most I had paid for a SL dress before was 1800L. (/me faints) My bid of 4000L won this cocktail dress for me. But I was far from finished.
