January 2011 - Rococo Fashion and High Tea

Last January I organized a fabulous meetup at the Atlanta Four Seasons hotel for Afternoon Tea. We had about 25 girls attending. The food was wonderful and yummy. We all had a great time socializing at such a classy and elegant place.

Near the end of January 2011 we are planning the same event. It looks like we might have nearly 40 girls attending this formal event of the season. The theme is Rococo. Halley and I are working on a Rococo gown for me. It will be very similar to the beautiful Rococo gown above. The bodice will be black velvet with a sweetheart neckline. The skirt will look similar but the colors will be green with black vertical stripes. The fabric is pure silk.
I will also wear a gorgeous blonde Rococo wig with large French Curls. You can be sure that I will have lots of wonderful photos of the gorgeous gown and share all the details. Some details about Rococo.

The Rococo style of art emerged in France in the early 18th century. It is characterized by opulence, grace, playfulness, and lightness in contrast to the heavier themes and darker colors of the earlier Baroque period.
The word Rococo was apparently a combination of the French rocaille, or shell, and the Italian barocco, or Baroque style. Because of Rococo love of shell-like curves and focus on decorative arts, some critics used the term to derogatively imply that the style was frivolous or merely fashion. Since the mid 19th century, though, the term has been accepted by art historians. While there is still some debate about the art historical significance of the style, rococo is now widely recognized as a major period in the development of European art.
