All this weekend's parties... Part I

This weekend marked the biggest parties of the year for the Ohio Art League, and damn.  I could get used to it!  Free food, free drinks, great people and best of all--- the opportunity to "see and be seen".  Friday night was the first night of the two, and was a mellow introduction to Saturday night's party.



It was also the opportunity to have first dibs on the art for sale, which, while there were a couple of pieces I most desperately wanted, I blew my grandchildren's children's college money on my teeth earlier this week.  So... next time.  There was so much good stuff in there.

 Dress:  gift from a friend.  Shoes:  Steve Madden.  And if you can see them, my Earrings are from Target and I'm also wearing my little two-finger zebra ring.

A friend of mine sent this dress my way just the day before... I have to admit that I have gotten to a place where I don't often experiment with shapes as much as I used to-- and I was pleasantly surprised that this one worked so well!

"Classy" and "Charismatic" are the words most often used to describe us.

Here, one of the photobooth pics that my Sweets and I took together, mostly to illustrate my fancy hair piece.  I got it off Etsy, and unfortunately, it wasn't packed well, so some of the leaves were broken.  Happily, I was able to mess around with it to make it good again-- then my cat ate a piece off of it.  Luckily, her eatings enhanced the look of it... no good close-up pictures, though!



One of the artists with her cute yarn-basket things that she makes, bedecked in wires reminscent of her craft... isn't she a cutie?


The notorious photobooth... I credit my Sweets with this photo... love the leg and the creepy "watcher" in the mirror!


And last but not least, an outfit shot of my friend D.; I loved his pink-and-gray ensemble...

While this party was an intimate and classy affair, the next night's was an absurd blow-out of the Dionysian kind... stay tuned to Part II for my turn as a Psychedelic Geisha Clown.

Be warned!

Yours,

Elissa.
