Just for Willow

My date Gordon
In Willow's Kitchen making some corrections

I wanted to keep it subtle as to not clash with Willow. I think I managed in this shy number by Galiano. The delicate shoes I wore were from Christian Louboutin.

I made a late entrance to Willow's ball last night. My date Mr.Gordon was delightful but I was a bit concerned when he stepped into the kitchen and kicked out a few chefs. It was a magical evening and I was even able to pry him off one of the chefs's necks for a dance. Willow we must do this again next year.

I would love to know the back story behind this...but I am hopelessly sheltered from media. I mean, I do know Gordon, of course...my husband is addicted to chef shows.

Oh, I WAS hoping he'd make himself comfortable in the manor kitchen! He is SO dashing. I might have to plant myself here by the sink and just watch.

Yes, RED is the color of the evening. I am sooooo envious of your over-the-top gown. I must take you shopping with me next year! You have exquisite taste!!

Oh that foxy Gordon! His poetry is so titlilating- "f*ckn'f*ck bollocks!" music to my heavily pierced ears...wonderful choices for the ball- LOVE your gown though we did get in a tangle with all that fabric. I am nursing a hangover actually...too much f*ck'n good wine!
Cheers!

Good evening m'lady. May I have the honour of this next dance, that is unless Gordon is going to throw a meat cleaver at me...

Lyn said...

I thought I recognized Gordon's yell..and to think that he's yours!
What I love about your modest attire is how effortlessly you threw it together!
So, what's for dinner?

You are such the trend setter in that beautiful gown! I was able to pry Antonio away momentarily but he keeps talking about his wife!

A pair of wellos would have finished off your outfit beautifully!

OH NO The cook at the ball is going to yell at us! haha!

Betsy said...

Just lovely! We better let Gordon cook in the kitchen alone....we wouldn't want anyone verbally abused at the ball! ha!

My apologies for being dispicably tardy. Life called me away most inconveniently!
