Magpies and Dances and Rich Cyber Chances

Here's my slightly late Willow Manor dance info. I had it on draft, so have combined it with this week's MT.......

 I recently attended my first ever cyber ball. Willow - Magpie Tales creator - throws a party every year, so despite being tee-total (well, near enough) I thought I would tag along. So my shopping and date went something like this:

The dress I chose in green. It's not a colour I'm overly fond of but it does compliment my strawberry-blonde hair rather well.
Accesories:
I'm not big on bling usually but I'd be having a tug of war over these two - the simple and the rich:

......earrings and bracelets would be similar, also.........
 Shoes -
As I can't wear them in reality, I've gone for a younger style, somewhat strappy and glitzy. Thankfully my long, beautiful gown helped cover any heel wobbles.

Bag/Purse:

I like my bags to be somewhat different - for easy recognition - as I'm always forgetting where I put them. This little number caught my attention:


My date - Australian actor Simon Baker a.k.a: The Mentalist. Well, he'd have to be to date me! That fair hair - those reckless curls - green eyes - sexy smile. I think that Aussie men are the sexiest and funniest in the world. Here's a few pictures of my Australian America-based beauty:
The Drop dead gorgeous one:

The Serious 'I-need-a-shave-one' One:
Before fame, even when he was lying in the gutter, begging, he was gorgeous:

Of course, dating someone who is in the public eye, on and off screen isn't easy, as last year's function events show. The paparazzi and glossy mags never give you peace - it was click, click, click.....everywhere we went!:

Sadly, the pressure got too much and we both parted straight after Willow Ball (him back to his champagne lifestyle and me to earth with a bump!)  I have enjoyed this experience, so thanks to Willow and her amazing imagination! See you next year with a different partner. Oh, this fame game........................

Wow! This fabulous dress reminds me of THE green "Atonement" dress worn by Keira Knightley! Thanks for helping make the Willow Manor Ball a smashing success! x

The green of your gown is beautiful and looks majestic ... love everything else you chose ESPECIALLY Mr. Simon Baker! We both chose men from down under - great minds!

Sir T - you know I'd go in a flash but if Simon heard about it......gimme a chronicle or two more and I'll think about it...!

Lena said...

Toyin - Hell, yeah!

Lena said...

Willow - missus it's a pleasure. I'm gearing for next year already...! What we doing for Xmas..?

Lena said...

Helen - we were well matched! I think he's the only man I'd get on a plane and burn myself to a crisp for......*sigh*

Lena said...

Kath - to be honest the poem was a rushed Haiku. I was still recovering from the ball!

Jingle - I am honoured. I try to be serious as often as I can.
