...I know, you're all really dying to know what I wore, right? I went with the Givenchy tuxedo, an off-white silk shirt, and pointy ankle strap shoes with a little bit of fishnet toe cleavage. I thought I looked pretty good. Then I got there and felt like a total frump! We're talking major taffeta, bows, wraps, and a killer short white dress covered with passementerie (on a blond, of course.)

Ruth McCarty looked spectacular in a black two piece outfit with a long skirt that she called "wearable art'..and it was. I want it.
Maybe next year I'll be more adventurous..



  1. Rosemary, I'm nota dress person myself. Your outfit sounds absolutely divine and I bet you were the envy of others yourself. Hope you had fun!


  2. You're too kind...
    I just never want to be the person in the room with the fanciest outfit. I'm going to start thinking about my Bouchercon and Crimebake outfits soon...(just kidding..)
    I did have a little fun...
