oh that is just gorgeous!! so elegant. the detail in the masks and the head pieces are amazing!

i wish all the balls i used to attend looked as elegant as this, but they were of the B&S kind...so, not so much : ) still bloody good fun though!

Hi Dustjacket,

Love all the beautiful black and white.
Oh to be there at the ball, waltzing to the music of Chopin.
Gorgeous post, dear friend.

DolceDreams said...

Love this (but of course I love all of your finds)...this reminds me of the Black and White Ball that I used to attend in San Francisco. You simply cannot go wrong with the classic black and white.
I particularly am intrigued with your Etsy find also! I recently purchased some Liberty of London items, they did a huge line for our "Target" stores here...and that is who did the fabric for the clutch you chose...I am thinking about it!
Happy almost weekend,
Nathalie
