First meeting of the Mid-Atlantic Fabulousity Club

The Française Dinner this weekend was great fun! girliegirl32786 arrived at my house Friday night. Shockingly we were good little girls and didn't stay up into the wee hours of the morning talking, as usual. The fact that we knew we had a 3.5 hour drive to PA ahead of us with to do nothing but chit-chat helped.

Our drive up to madamekat's house was uneventful if long. lindseyerin37 was at the house too and the four of us proceeded to do our hair, laced up our stays and help each other get dressed. Somehow we left the house not only looking fabulous but on time - when does that ever happen?!

The evening was really wonderful! The venue was lovely, the staff and guests so welcoming and flattering, the food excellent and the company was quite fabulous!

I wore my Diva dress with some new jewelry and what have been dubbed my "caricature feathers". They were ridiculously fun to wear, although I need to come up with a clever way to keep them facing forward like they should rather than move all over the place like they did. *ponders* I so enjoyed wearing my Diva again - I do love it so!

Photos of the evening!

You're welcome to post the links to my videos here - I just didn't want to make anyone uncomfortable by listing them on YouTube!

Thank you for not listing them on YouTube! My moment dancing with the cake was a private show for you guys only! LOL!

That's what I figured! It was so cute I had to tape it, but it was only for us! :-) I didn't link them on my blogspot just LJ!

You looked so elegant and such a vibrant splash of color! Plus your feathers were just the most ridiculously amazing things.

Hope to see you at the next club meeting! What'd we say at least quarterly meetings?

Monthly. The next one is March 11th. BTW, are you one the OMG costuming group list?

Thanks so much! I was worried about the feathers being *too* much but I got so many complements on them I guess not! Goes to show there isn't really such a thing as *too* much when it comes to the 18th century. :>

A minimum of quarterly meetings sounds like an awesome plan - let's do it! I guess the next one is the March Tea in Annapolis then what Fort Fred (April 28)?
