Pretty Dress of the Day Challenge - She Danced All Night
She Could Have Danced All Night!
The Victorian Ball Season is kicking into high gear starting this month. There is just something so magical about donning on a pair of button-up opera length gloves, fastening a lovely gemstone necklace around your neck, slipping on your favorite pair of dancing slippers, and stepping into a sumptuous Ballgown that seems to transport us back in time. We can imagine what it was like to feel that anticipation and excitement on the eve of a Ball!
This is a lovely 1898 Ballgown by J. Doucet, of the Late-Victorian era. The lace is exceptional and the design is simple and elegant. Enjoy!
