Thank You Southern Belles!

To everyone who responded to my plea for help - thank you very much. I WON!!!!! I was the "Southern Belle" of the night, y'all! I won the best costume! As you can see on the photos, I wore pink. One commenter suggested to watch "Steel Magnolias" to get more ideas about being a Southern Belle and so I did. I was reminded of my love for all shades of pink when I watched it, and so a "pink" outfit I got! Of course I followed a lot of the advice. I had a hat (I couldn't find a parasol); I had matching white gloves up to the elbow; I even had a pink feather fan. I brought a bottle of wine as a gift to the hostess; I had matching pearl necklace and earrings; I had bright red nail polish on my toe nails in my white high heel sandals; had a bright red lipstick (I actually put make up on, which is a rare occasion for me nowadays), and I wore my best smile the whole night.

Not all the bunco participants dressed up (too bad); but some did including my two best friends.


And the hostess? Well, she was wearing a tank top that says "Rebel Debutante"! The nerve ;) ! I was expecting her to have the best and authentic Southern Belle Dress (or gown) because she's from the South and she's a real belle. But no...., she was a "re-belle"!


We had grits for dinner! My first time to eat grits! The hostess cooked this shrimp and grit and it was tasty! We also had Salad. And... we had Raspberry Apple Martini. Oh, the Martini rocks!

Once again, thank you Southern Belles for all your help.


This post contains my best photos for the week so this is also my official entry to Lotus' Weekly Winners carnival :)
