The Dress Form Ball

Now that I ditched the day job, I am finally able to join in on one the parties that I really wanted to do last year, but did not have the time................Here is my "girl" and she is ready to go!



http://thepolkadotcloset.blogspot.com/


Meet "Floozie". My oldest granddaughter named her that when she was just beginning to talk. I don't know why, I think we may have been playing a game or I said that in conversation the same day, because when I asked her what we should name her she said "Floozie". So the name stuck.

 Floozie is all draped in lace, glitter and bling...
 I loaned her several of my most favorite necklaces for the ball...

 She is bringing her Tattered Gypsy Lace hand bag too....

 Her tattered gauze skirt is full of sparkle and a Goodwill bargain find!

Hope you are coming to the ball too!

She is just fabulous! I saw the jewelry and just had to see more! Now I'm in LOVE with the bag! WOW! Gorgeous!

Little Miss Maggie said...

Floozie is beautiful. She sports sort of a Bohemian look which brings out the true gypsy in her. I love her jewelry.

I never met a Floozie I didn't like Deb...hahahaha!

Is she coming to the show with us?

Debbi said...

Yes Carrie, Floozie is coming to the Plucky Maidens show with us, she will be the star of the booth!

I wanted to let you know Floozie has made her way to the ball! Her jewelry and purse have been the envy of all the guests and her dance card......Well, when the men heard her name....Her card filled up right away!

Thank you so much for attending the ball, I promise to return Floozie safe and sound!

Well, it's hard to take the name literally, when she is dressed in such pretty things as we see here today! Love the pearls and lace, and the sparkly skirt; but being a crocheter, I particularly like the crochet handbag Floozy is wearing!.. Very nice to meet you, Debbi, via The Dress Form Ball today! ~tina

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Well, Floozie is just so darn pretty. I will have to ask Mabel when she comes home if Floozie lived up to her name. I'm sure Mabel will be discreet..Happy Monday..Judy

I adore that your granddaughter named her Floozie. Floozie is dressed far more beautiful than I would have envisioned. This is such a fun ball. Dancing the night away...
