Willow Ball

Excitement never ends. First a family wedding and now the third annual Willow Ball. I can hardly wait! Click on this link for more information about the Willow Ball. You are invited, too!

First I'm going to have a long soak in a bubble bath.

Then I will twist up my hair in a simple little knot and spray a discreet little spray of Chanel No. 5.

I had thought about this designer dress by Christian Siriano (from Project Runway) but then I decided ... no

So I decided on this simple little number that I found on . I believe it is a copy of a Selena Gomez Oscar gown. (I hope Selena is not attending!)

Then I will slip on my shiny little Jimmy Choos ...

and my ruby earrings ...

and run out to meet my date - no, not Simon Baker. It is his alter ego, Patrick Jane, from the "Mentalist". Won't he make the most interesting observations about all the guests? I love his eyes. I think he deserves a little fun. He works so hard.

We are riding in his interesting little car, a Citroen DS21... He was going to borrow a sports car from a friend, but check out this video of what happened to the last car he borrowed.

I'm so glad I picked the second dress. We would never have gotten all those pink ruffles into his car. See you at the ball!!!


  1. Ohh, you will be a knockout! That silver dress is HOT. And a silver Citroen to match! And Choos and a very handsome dreamy escort. The bathtub to start looks so nice, though, I wonder if I'd want to leave for the ball?

  2. I am sooo jealous! Simon Baker, the love of my life. You really do look beautiful.

  3. Beverly, Ruth says she is coming. Maybe I will see you there.

  4. Must confess I melted a little when I saw who you were bringing to the Ball .... I adore him! A good thing you were the only attendee in the Gomez Oscar creation ... and you looked beautiful!

  5. Ah, yes, you look stunning in this sleek little silver number! Just gorgeous!!

  6. and the dress matches the car - amazing how did you do it???bkm

  7. Ooooh,sleek silver car, gown and shoes.

  8. Lovely dress,awesome ride,and an amazing date! You both were beautiful together! :-)

  9. What a beautiful, tastefully slinky dress you chose. Simon was dazzled - I could tell by the way he looked at you!

  10. Beautiful silhouette on the silver dress and beautiful hand-beading.

    I love Christian Siriano; he made great television. His pink dress looks like one that Taylor Swift would wear - very fun.
