An award.....I accept!

Last evening I watched the Emmy's
this morning
I discovered
I have been given an award 
Thank you to

These flowers are for you Suburban princess!

With so many talented and creative bloggers out there
I feel honoured
to have been considered and mentioned.

As far as my acceptance speech or red carpet gown
I am short on words
this has taken me by surprise
I have no speech writer
and my attire is, well, totally unsuitable!

Thank You for considering me worthy...

and I am wearing
as seen here

recently pedicured toes 
wearing Peru-B-Ruby by OPI
no make up on
freshly washed face
rather common
and the
(don't even go there!)

What would I wear?

1. Jeans and a white shirt with masses of pearls.
2. One of my LBD's and some Bling.
3. Dressy tweedy black trousers, black tank and Simon Chang jacket (see side bar)
4. Black knit palazzo pants, Black 3/4 sleeve top, pashmina 
5. Mother of the groom outfit...circa 2007
silk shantung patchwork skirt grey, charcoal, black, cream, silk shantung cream wrap top

I do not think I am Red Carpet material
I'd be the one tripping on my hem
red faced 
 bumbling on the podium which would be tall
and obscuring my height challenged
unable to see or be seen
and the worst of all
the camera adds 30 pounds
so now
I am really in trouble!
