A Cloudy Day in Redwood City, a strange cast of character's gathered to celebrate un-birthdays, croquet and Tea.

Despite a few disapproving glares from little old lady's (I think it was the Bunny Ears on the bus ) Today was really fun! The weather was overcast (my favorite when I am wearing so many layers) but it did sprinkle once and get rather windy towards the end. The wind made it a tad tricky to be wearing mini wind sails on my head :)
We played games, had caucus races, trivia contests, read Poems and generally monkeyed around. There was good Tea and AMAZING looking homemade cupcakes! Sadly none for me, the gluten intolerance being a problem for the cucumber sandwiches as well.
The event was Technically Victorian themed, but as the white rabbit I made the excuse that I was VERY LATE :)
It was really fun to wear my new dress, and I got a lot of compliments from people. I really love how the skirt swooshes out as I walk (The wind helped) unfortunately though, sometimes the skirt in the front would split open and flash my petticoat. The gathers on the front shoulder are also still wanting to slip down onto my arm, so I need to add a stay-minor fix. It was an altogether first outing success for my Dottie dress! I hope to wear it to an upcoming Evening Regency Dance. Hopefully once I Apply some Quality/period Bling it will work as an impromptu evening dress.
And yes, I am wearing sneakers, for running of course!
