Jeff and I have been invited to an "exclusive" ball this coming Saturday evening, so I'm working on what to wear. It's a formal cotillion with dinner and a live band on a great wooden floor, so the focus is on the dancing. I have several formals, but not one I can foxtrot in!
Thankfully, I recalled stashing something away several years ago as a sewing project. It's a beautiful gown I found for a few dollars at a discount place. It's a couple sizes too big and quite long, but I think I can work with it. I'll post some photos when I get the alterations done!
