"Where Did I Put My Glass Slippers?" or "Polish Up the Old Pumpkin!"

OMG! Here I am talking about Cocktail Parties and I forgot all about the fact that tonight is the Willow Manor Ball!

What to wear, what to wear?

The tea party outfit just isn't fancy enough and the wench outfit is way too slutty... they'll never let me in looking like that!

Guess I'll just have to go shopping.... and where better than Liana's Paper Doll blog?

If you haven't yet checked Liana out, you really must... these outfits are to die for!

Here are some classic styles from her collection which are up for consideration for tonight's ball:

















Or should I go with something a bit more daring:

I think that would make me look kinda dangerous! I like it!


Or I could go with something a little more hip and modern like this futuristic knight outfit for the discerning woman.

And the attached laser zapper would come in handy if anyone got too fresh on the dance floor... after all, I do have my reputation to think of as a single woman.

On second thought, nah... it's just not me. Besides, where would I put my shield while I'm dancing?




Alas, I just haven't figured out yet how to get the little paper tabs on these swell gowns to work on my plus-sized body. (Note to Liana: You really must start making the back sides to these lovely gowns... people are beginning to talk.)

Maybe I should just stay home. Besides, I'm not sure my date will be ready in time anyway...

Damn you, Indigo! How could you on such an important day?

Oh well, maybe next year....

(I wonder if Otin or Maelstrom or Moooooog or Skip or Mr. Glob or Scotty or C.B. or iDifficult or Subby or the Dufus or one of those other bloggy guys will be available next year to go with me to the virtual ball now that Indigo has lost his chance?)

Fear not, dear damsel. If Indigo is not out of the clink in time, The Old Silly will be most pleased to stand in. Wear the "daring" gown, and I'll be picking you up in my horse and carriage, shall we say - nine-ish?

Leah said...

OH dear, shall we take up a collection to spring your Indigo free?

I love the gowns.

CatLadyLarew said...

Old Silly: I shall anxiously await your arrival!

Leah: Too late, too late! *shakes head* I'll just have to give my bloggy heart to another... I'm fickle like that! (Besides, he started it by posting that charming photo on his blog... how could I NOT steal it for my own evil purposes! Tee hee!)

Maelstrom said...

Well, I'll go, but I won't dance. I'll just drink a lot and then start shooting the place up.

Star said...

I expect you did finally make up your mind what to wear? I expect you'll be wondering what to eat next? You must be a Libra and indecisive? No matter, you will have a wonderful time at the ball. I believe it's in full throttle at the moment.
See you there!
Blessings, Star

Oooo...I like the orange gown! And so perfect for October, too! Throw it on and come on over!!

IndigoWrath said...

Hey CatLady! Apologies Cherie, I don't know what I was thinking. I made bail, but now have two black eyes. Are dark glasses permissible if I wear a white tux? Indigo

ReformingGeek said...

Bummer about the gowns only being the size of postage stamps. So that's the size the Hollywood girls are going for now, huh?

Looks like Indigo may pull through for you, though!

CatLadyLarew said...

Maelstrom: That's okay... your idea actually sounds like more fun anyway!

Star: Actually I'm a Gemini, but I hear I'm on the cusp, so that makes me wishy washy. I wonder if they'll have Dr. Pepper in goblets? See you there!

Willow: The orange gown it is!

Indigo: I think you might look even more mysterious in the dark glasses and white tux, so all is forgiven. Are idifficult and eloist petite going as well? I do hope so. Although, I have to warn you... the Old Silly is coming along now, since I wasn't sure you were going to make it and I couldn't be without a male escort. Hope you don't mind sharing the carriage.

idifficult said...

Go for the flame outfit, it's just smokin'

CatLadyLarew said...

Reffie: Last time I had a postage stamp size figure I was in Kindergarten.

idifficult: That IS a smokin' outfit, ain't it? Are you and the Missus going to the ball?

Me-Me King said...

Yeah, I like the daring one too, you'll be the queen of the Ball. Indigo.....damn him!

Betsy said...

You are TOO FUNNY! Hurry up to the ball...I'll look for you there!

Barbara Martin said...

You should wear red as men love that colour on women. Draws them in like beacons in the dark.

I had to use a changed pumpkin myself tonight. The Fairy Godmother came through so my step-daughter and I could go have an interesting night with Prince Charming. I'd say my step-daughter got the most out of the evening though.

CatLadyLarew said...

Me-Me: Please tell me you'll be there too! It wouldn't be a party without you!

Betsy: Oh, hello! Fancy meeting you here! I simply MUST see who your escort is this evening!

Barbara: There was a lovely little red number, but I saw so many others in red. Orange makes a much stronger statement, don't you know! Surely the younger women won't be dominating the dance floor all night. I'd say we still have a dance or two left in us this evening! And there are many other charming gentlemen still unattached!

K a b l o o e y said...

CatLady: Boing back to my blog to finally see the award you gave me and sorry this is so late. I'm not an ungrateful bitch. (Frightening moment of reflection: is this like people who start sentences with "I don't mean anything by it, but..." or "I'm not a racist, but..."? God, I hope not.)

rxBambi said...

You can have Otin as your date next year. He abandoned me for Kate Beckinsale. He's such a man-whore... but that's ok, it made plenty of room on my dance card for many of the other fabulous men in attendance!

CatLadyLarew said...

K a b l o o e y: Boinging back to say Congrats on the 100th post! Whoopee! We might have to blow something up to celebrate!

rxBambi: What? HOW could Otin do such a thing? And after you dressed him up so nicely for the party! (Nice touch with the kilt, BTW.) I'm so disillusioned!

Hit 40 said...

You should take buffalodick next year!!

Sandra Leigh said...

I would vote for the orange (I love the flames at the hem), but I think you already decided to wear it - at least, I think I saw you out on the dance floor with Hammer. You looked fabulous, both of you.

IndigoWrath said...

Wow, my head is thumping this morning. Why did I wake up in a ditch? Did we have fun at the party? I have a vague memory of iDifficult putting something into the punch. I think it was wife...

CatLadyLarew said...

Hit 40: Next year I'm takin' everybody I can find! The more the merrier! (You wanna ride with us?)

Sandra: That Hammer really knows how to spin!

CatLadyLarew said...

Indigo: So THAT's where you ended up. We were all wondering. And sorry about leaving you behind. Wife finally crawled out of the punch bowl and punched iDifficult, breaking open his stitches, so we had to get him to hospital. Definitely a night to remember... if only you could!

Until next year...

Indigo: Eolist Petite isn't with you, is she? Her family just called.
