Linda, I don't know how you are supposed to dress at one of those but you may want to PM ProteinFarts about this. He posted a website here awhile back with some beautiful things. I saved it...I'll try to find it....
here it is: http://www.bargello.com/default.asp
I wouldn't pm anyone unless I'm responding to one of theirs and I don't even do that, but I did think to ask ProF (in fact I did on my first edit of this query, but I deleted that bit because he hasn't been here for a while now...
I will read your blue link tomorrow. Thanks so much. I might just ask the girlys across the road who invited me. I need to get a ride too, it's in Tottenham, which is N19 and 1-2 hours away from here... (or perhaps more importantly, to arrange a lift home!
I always come up with an outfit. I've got rain gear, summer suits, frilly hats, wellington boots, golf wear, riding gear and even lycra cycling stuff. I've got pink painting and purple gardening overalls. I've got evening wear (his and hers) and smoking jackets and satin dressing gowns.
I collect lovely classic clothing.
I'll find something appropriate!
The weather is lovely, so I won't have to concern myself about that. I have a collection of men's evening shirts, so I might wear one of those over a long dress with some kind of big scarf. I don't think I should attempt to look ethnic, that would be daft. After all I'm only going for the food and because they are a lovely happy smiley family. And because I've never been to a Walima... I didn't even know what one was till I received this gorgeous gold ink embossed invite and googled !!!
