Going To Bath…

In the spirit of adventure, have decided to indulge our more adventurous side so in April 2018, we’ll be travelling to Bath, England to partake in a Victorian era ball (with the time frame of the early to mid-1870s). Sponsored by Prior Attire, a reproduction garment maker in England, the ball is scheduled for April 28, 2018 with some subsidiary events the day after. So, we’ll be spending three days in Bath and four days in London and we’re excited and hard at work drawing up our “hit lists” of places we absolutely have to go see. Naturally, fashion will be one of major interests and there will be plenty of opportunities… 🙂

We’ve already bought tickets to the ball and secured excellent airfares on Air New Zealand so things are falling into place nicely. Stay tuned for more! 🙂

  1. How do you do. Thought you’d like to know that you’ve made a wonderful, perfect decision. We went to last year’s event and I can promise you will have a fantastic, memorable time, well worth every penny spent and every hour tortured on the plane! We flew in from Houston, Texas, which is a long trip, but not as far as you will be travelling.

    Izabella is a wonderful lady, very smart, warm, and welcoming. She and her friends make you feel so welcome as they had known you forever. The vast array of period gowns are dazzling. The music is lively and the dancing is merry. They also served a lovely spread of light foods and beverages so that the breathless and the footsore might rest a bit and regain their energy before venturing out again.

    We had plans to come back this year and it breaks my heart that events at home have conspired so that we won’t be able to make it. But rest assured, we’ll be back for 2019!

    Enjoy your anticipation. Make the gown of a lifetime to wear, but be certain to have low-heeled, comfortable shoes.

    One last note, plan your stay for at least a week. Bath is so full of wonders to see and to do and won’t want to miss any of them.

    • Thank you! We’re looking at this with keen anticipation and the dress design and construction plans are well underway. 🙂 We’re looking at staying in Bath for four days and London for three- looking to get in a whirlwind fashion tour. 🙂
