Happy Valentines Day, See You at Debbies

I got a little splainin' to do. I thought Debs big day was tomorrow and I almost missed the party. Par for Friday the 13th. Line me up some dirty martinis Honey, I'm on my way. (Please excuse the fact that I wrote this post for Saturday)
Happy Valentines Day!I know I was going to hibernate until Monday. but, as most of you know, EVERYONE who is ANYONE will be at TNT's for the party of the year (or at least of February, or this week) and they will be dressed to the nines for a chance to win her "Fab-U-Lous" give away.
So, Darlings, I just had to come out of hiding for this fete. I hope you will be joining in as well.
Since Valentines Day comes but once a year I thought I would make a day of it. For luncheon I have chosen this red rose bedecked garden frock. Champagne cocktails anyone?
It is February so if there is a nip in the air I will cover up with a sweet little ivory cashmere cardigan.
The sequined details are to die for.
Of course no lady would be caught at luncheon with a bare head, although I seem to have misplaced my gloves.
Then, after several champagne cocktails and some chocolate dipped strawberries it is on to the main event. The party at TNT's! I have chosen a lady like little two piece number in champagne lace with a sweet satin bow. Not too low cut please, a lady must retain her dignity.
I do believe the saying is that a man wants a lady in public and a ... well...something a bit private, right? So after a bit of dancing and a few Cosmos or maybe Debbie's dirty martinis (I hear she makes a mean one)...
I will have to bid you all good night. After all, a girls gotta do something for her Valentines goodies. What would you do for a few dozen roses?
Better yet, what wouldn't you do for a 2 Chippy's necklace?

Enjoy the party and I hope your Valentines Day is filled with love...and a trinket or two.

Have a red hot Saturday, P.

P.S. All clothing was once worn by my lovely mother Helen and later by myself in the early years of my marriage and young motherhood. Maybe I will wear them again...(if I can keep my paws off the chocolate strawberries)
Pin It!

Pam, I know you just wanted to make an entrance, right?
Your dresses are to die for. there anything like it in the world? Of course when there is a nip in the air, I just put a little nip in me.
Do not ask me what I will do for Valentine's goodies. I dislocated my knee at my son's wedding dancing for a dollar. What does that tell you?
I am some high class broad.
Y'all have all been so creative. This has been loads of fun!
Now please, pour me a champagne cocktail as I am feeling a might chilly! Debbie

Stop by for a "little hair of the dog" if you have time. It will be worth it. Debbie

Congratulations Mrs. Frippery! I didn't know a proper young lady like yourself had trashy friends that drove pink wheels and sipped martinis all night...but winning the necklace was sure worth it! tee hee!

That really was a fun party. Heck, I even left a silly comment to join in the fun! Deb's excitment was contagious!

You'll look FaB-U-LouS in that beautiful necklace!

everything vintage
