Photo here of us at the recent UBC Gala Ball. I didn't like the tango face much, but our coach loved it, so it is up on my blog. If you click the photo, you get a bigger image. You can't see all the sparkly bits, but it does show how the skirts move and DH's tails flying!

Now that's a serious tango face

The photo really does show the movement -- love this dress colour -- I think it's great for you.

Oh my gosh! You're right about "movement"; it certainly shows in that dress! Jaw dropping!

Thanks everyone. It is nice to be able to share this with people who appreciate the work that goes into a gown like that!

SheBear - tricky to get a look that isn't just grumpy, bored or in pain. I have tried to practice in the mirror but just end up giggling too much.

So glad you share! What a wonderful image of all 3 of you in motion. Your dress is truly the "third person" on your team. Gorgeousness!
