Ladies Who Lunch



I had a lovely invitation to join friends today at the annual March of Dimes luncheon and Neiman Marcus award ceremony honoring Houston's 10 Best Dressed. The FABULOUS runway style show presented the Fall/Winter collection of Emilio Pucci.
 
I wore my recently completed Vogue 1314 with fabric by Gorgeous Fabrics, which in itself, is rather Pucci-esque.
 
I felt great in my little spring-worthy outfit mingling with our town's "see and be seen" crowd. The March of Dimes is a great charity so I was happy to buy a $50 raffle ticket for a chance to win a $5000 spending spree at Neiman's. As the emcee was reaching into the bowl to pick the winner, I thought "I'd love to win it...but I sure wish they carried fabric."
 
I'm hopeless.

  7. Pucci-esque indeed, Dorcas! I'm sure your dress was as much admired as those modeled at the luncheon. It's just a crying shame that NM doesn't carry fabric!

    1. Thanks, Sarah! I agree with you. Some of the things we crank out are far superior to the RTW the society mavens had on. If you lived here you WOULD have been nominated!

  8. Oh, pretty! We are coming into spring here but it is still sweater weather, and there is new snow in the mountains. What a beautiful floral dress!
