Hi Maggie-I'm wondering if you were the reader quite a while ago who asked me to enlarge the font size I was using? For some reason your name is sticking with me there! I had the dress and the hat up until Hurricane Katrina. I loved them both so much and was able to wear them for other special and political occasions here in New Orleans..usually with some pretty colorful ribbons and other accessories. I bought it in a shop in the French Quarter called Tia Maria's. She was a seamstress and sewed in all Argentine lace. Her dresses were very reasonable even for that time. It seems I paid $150 for that dress and the hat! Sorry to say that there are a lot of things that are gone and some that I have no idea where they could be-I gave almost all my clothes away to charity prior to my departure to the Chatette in 2006.Thanks for checking back in-I probably don't talk or write about the marriage because it's not a happy memory and it actually feels like it never even happened. Have a nice Thursday and a great weekend ahead-Laury


I stumbled on your blog some time ago and have loved reading about France and New Orleans,being a Southerner myself. The bit about your marriage was a surprise, but thank you for sharing. Your wedding gown was absolutely lovely and charming, as is the hat. Do you still have the dress? Thank you for all the lovely flowers photos. Nothing is blooming in the mid-country.
