All the holiday parties. All the excuses to pull out the floor-length gowns that have been sitting in your closet.
This one is vintage — sixties maybe? I wore it to the opera last year. And I’m still so, so glad I didn’t have this bad boy hemmed. (That would have been a travesty.) A floor-length gown is a thing of beauty.
Speaking of things of beauty — say hello to my little friend. He’s from Barefoot Contessa in Vancouver.
And he’s such a bold little guy I feel like he deserves a name. Thoughts?
P.S. On Facebook, The Anthology is wonderful any time of year.
You are breathtaking.
Love the ring. I’d help you name the lil guy but i’m pretty bad at naming things. When I was a kid I named my rabbit “bunny” and my budgie “budgie”. I’m pretty sure if I ever have a daughter i’ll name her “girl”.
I’m surprised I passed Kindergarten. ;)
Love the ring! I was just at Barefoot Contessa this weekend and looking at similar rings.
I wish we had Barefoot Contessa here, I keep seeing wonderful things online from it!
I think you should name him Fred! Was Fred expensive? haha.
Hope you had a lovely weekend :)
And I love the angle of prise de vue.
His name ? Poulpito. Or Discopuss. Or Lou Diamond.
Adorable! Name him Fluffy!
Gorgeous dress and ring. I’d name him Ollie.
what was that really good mexican dish with octopus and a spicy sauce? octopus diablo? name him diablo.
Love the gown. Call the Octo “Enrique.”
Love the floor-length gown, so pretty! I’m workin on a floor-length black dress too, they feel a bit like dress-up in the most glamourous way!
A name for your lil guy.. Glitz
LOL at Melissa’s comment. She’s hilarious!
You look so chic and holiday-appropriate. As for naming the octopus, how about Ollie?
Beautiful dress. Beautiful ring. What finds.
Gorgeous photos, Kelsey. I love the octopus ring. ;)
Absolutely gorgeous gown, darling!
Ah, you look exquisite. And that ring…I want! How about Olly for a name? He looks like an Olly to me. :P
oh my god it looks lovely ! i wish i had a holiday party to go to . because i have tons of pretty dresses.
