Ok, so this picture isn't the most flattering of me blush rolleyes , but it is the only picture I have of my prize-winning Miss Scarlett costume for movie night at church a few weeks ago where we ate pizza and watched Clue. I won out of all the adults - and I got some yummy bath soaps. So, this photo isn't me at my best but hey - whatever. And I did keep my shawl on all night - it was cold in the gym! Plus it made it more acceptable for church.

Thanks! I didn't know it was going to be a contest - I just thought it would be fun to dress up laugh

That shawl was a lifesaver - the dress showed a bit more neck than I thought it would, so I was glad to have that option.

I agree that it is lovely. I love that shade of red. And congrats on winning the contest. The only thing I ever won was a Bossy the cow once in my youth. (For the younger folk, Bossy was the Borden Milk Company mascot. And Borden's delivered milk to your door in those days!)

Aww shucks, you guys are all so sweet! Thanks for the lovely compliments! hug

I love dressing up - I have so many dresses, and my mom accuses me of being overdressed for things. rolleyes I swear, the day I get married she's going to look at me and say "Don't you think you're a bit overdressed for the occasion?" laugh
