the gown, the gems and the guy



After some serious thought, I just couldn't wear purple as Eugene had requested. I need my sanity and wits about me to spend an evening with this clown. Earlier in the week, he sang this song to me when I asked him at attend the Fourth annual Willow Manor Ball.


After all I am a red head with porcelain skin and green eyes. If I dare ware purple, I would get pulled right back into my local chapter of the red hat ladies and I just couldn't bare it. 
As a compromise, I did decide to ware my amethyst gems.





 For the moment it seemed to appease my fun loving date Eugene Hutz, front-man for the gypsy punk band, Gogol Bordello. But, I had to promise to attend another party with him in Moscow. He's got a little business to do there so we are going to pop over on his private jet, sometime around 4:30 or 5am.


Now I should have realized that we would look like a couple of Christmas Elves when Eugene showed up wearing a red coat and tails of all things. When he saw my peacock gown, he gave me a twirl and said, "You look Marvelous!"



I told Eugene that, if and only if, he behaved himself by not making off with other woman, breaking any thing at Willow Manor or starting any fist fights with communists, I would slip into this little number for the after party. I will leave you now with a favorite Gogol Bordello song Through the Roof and Underground.  Enjoy and we will see you at Willow Manor.

Purple, red and amethyst? Perfect for an autumn ball :)
I'm afraid I'd never heard of Bordello.. eek, don't tell him that!

KRISTEN! I thought I might have missed you ~ however one could never miss that gown you are wearing. Next to Tess ... the best feathers yet!

My purple frosted toenails did not go unnoticed by Eugine at the Willow Manor ball. "You have to start somewhere" he said.
Loved your amethyst jewellery. Pointed your necklace out to my partner John Lennon.
"...yeah,yeah,yeah" he said "and look at the diamonds on that lady Lucy" he muttered "there's probably a song in that somewhere....".
Lovely to meet both you and Eugine at the ball.

I love the rich colours you have chosen to wear to the ball. The amethysts are truly beautiful. I loved the song, Start Wearing Purple. It's so much fun!! Thank you for sharing this. =D

The peacock feathered dress is to die for. Now we have them to go with Tess's feather trail on the ground! :) Quite the night, isn't it!

I like your date, I think he only had eyes for you! Gorgeous gown.

Amethyst is severely underrated, and I love it.
I was verrrrry tempted by your Eugene tonight, but I hurried away. Your gypsy punker was attracted to my huntress qualities, yes he was...as you said he would be...but I respected you and had nothing to do with him. Nothing.

Hope you have a wonderful time at both the Ball and the after party. Enjoy.

I love your peacock dress, and your after party slip of a naughty dress. And the amethyst baubles stay on?

Gosh, I must admit that I turned green myself, but only with envy, at the sight of your peacock feathered dress. Now wasn't that just heaven sent, darlin'? And that man of yours, what a card. He did get on so well with my Bertie. What a pair of bananas - LOL
But didn't you look simply shiny for the After Party. I myself felt ever so keen in my tumbler white dress with silk black sash and matching stiletto heels. And I don't know about you, but IMO the after party was even more delicious. ;~D

Shari Sunday said...

You look wonderful, strutting like a peacock, so to speak.
