Here she is in her pretty pastel blue and white frock before accessorizing. It really has a light and airy feel. It has a pale blue jersey knit bodice framed between a white scalloped collar trimmed in lace and studded with pearls, and with white ruffly lace at the waist.
The skirt is a blue-and-white floral patterned cotton, also trimmed in lace. The thin straps for the top of the dress are made from the same fabric.
Here is a close up shot of the dress so you can more clearly see the details. The bottom of the skirt also has a double-layered lining which makes it looks quite classy.
And now for the accessories, which completely change the appearance of the dress. Dani has done herself up two ways; the first is a little dressier, and the second is suitable for travelling.
She is wearing a sterling silver necklace with a myriad of pastel-blue gems to add sparkle to the outfit. And speaking of sparkle, it's hard to beat her Chanel evening bag bedecked in blue and white with all those glittering gems. See?
That must have cost a pretty penny!
Actually, here I may digress but it's a good lesson in Canadian currency. It's relevant to Dani, of course, because she is Canadian through and through.
Our Canadian Mint doesn't make pennies anymore since 2012. Apparently it just wasn't economical because the copper cost more than the penny made out of it. To be fair, it was a very pretty penny with it's maple leaf design and all, and likely much further in the future those pennies that were saved will be worth a whole lot more. So now saving your pennies also has a different connotation here in Canada.
And now for Dani's second attempt at accessorizing her pretty blue dress. I mentioned previously that it would be a good travel outfit, but I didn't say what kind of travel. Dani's all set to 'time travel' through space!
She is also wearing a sterling silver necklace with a pearl pendant formed into a blue and white sapphire cicada.
Believe it or not, there is such a thing as a Canadian cicada and here's a link where you can hear them sing: http://songsofinsects.com/cicadas/canadian-cicada
Dani figured having a cicada along could provide a source for sound-tracking during this star trek. And besides, it matches her outfit!
Finally, Dani has selected a very unique handbag to take along. It is a blue patterned 'Dr. Who' purse picturing time as a clock with the time-travelling 'tardis' at it's centre.
Dr. Who is the hero of a British science-fiction TV series which began in 1963. The protagonist is an alien adventurer; a Time Lord/Lady who can change appearance and gender by regenerating when near death. He/she uses the 'tardis' (which is shaped like a British police public call box) as a time travelling capsule.
Dani is especially thrilled now because there is a first-ever female Dr. Who at the helm. She believes in female rights be they feline, human or alien.
She isn't the only pussycat who likes to dress up for time travel. It looks like they're currently casting (or CATSing in her case) for a new version of this television program titled "Dr. Mew".
Hopefully, they'll abide by the time-honoured courtesy of letting ladies go furst.
"An' if yoor lookin' fur a female PURRsonality, I'm it. Dr. Mew at yoor service!"
And, as far as Dani and this post goes -- what a trip it has been!
dani your dress is FABulous as are the accessories and I have to say I like the time travel handbag the best
