Fashionable Friday : Shimmy Chic Pink

Now that we've had a Token Casual Day Chez Shell, it's back to the glammies.  My penchant for bows is only a few steps behind my obsession for ruffles, so today we are shimmying downstairs to answer the door in a soft pink number with a bowed bustle to add some rustle to the hustle.  {Stop me, someone ...}

Today's fashion illustration is inspired by this divine vision, whose gown was most likely ivory in colour, but given the choice between ivory and pink, you know where my brush and palette will want to go.  As for our usual kitty or dog, feel free to decide whether they are hiding under the train or chasing the tail end of it.

Sitting for any length of time would be a waste of a beautiful back view ~ a brief perch at the most, I feel ~ so a leisurely stroll might be the most flattering way to pass the time.  Our Hugh is on his way to chaperone and field prospective suitors.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

  1. Oh, this is so glam! By all means, press the doorbell for some fine champagne! The music is beginning below, in the ballroom.

    And then -- here come Kitty careening down the bannister! (who could resist!) ;) Of course, she'll land on her feet and walk away in a distinguished manner as if nothing had happened.

    1. That's two of us, Hiker. Sitting comfortably can attract a certain ennui ....

  3. The bustle is fine, as long as I get to wear low-heeled slippers.
    It's a sorry state of affairs when my chaperone is more handsome than my suitor(s).

  4. Long gowns = whatever slipper choice takes your fancy, Petrea. As for Hugh, I'm using the 'Like attracts like' theory by designating him as chaperone ...

    1. The song or the little portraits, PA ? I just googled it and the story of 'lover's eyes' portraits is wonderful ~ I'd not heard of them !

  7. I'd probably get a stiff neck. Why? Because I'd make my date walk behind me (like Prince Phillip) so he could admire the view, and I'd be looking over my shoulder all night. On the other hand, this gown is well worth a little pain!

    1. You wouldn't have to make him walk behind you, dear Alexa ... he would voluntarily assume the position !

  8. So cute! A little bit of illustration, a little bit of story and a little bit of emotions! Cute!
