If your fairy godmother is on hiatus, that's okay, there are a few things that you don't need for the Washington's Ball.
You don't need.......
A PRINCE -- let alone a handsome one, nor do you need an escort unless, of course, you want one (an escort that is). Handsome princes are hard to come by.
A SILK SACQUE -- Certainly that would be nice and is, no doubt, on your to-do list, next to losing 10 pounds and learning a foreign language. But the ball is only a month away and as with the rest of the things on your list of New Year's Resolutions, might take some time. Don't sweat it! If you have a gown plain or fancy, you can attend. In future posts, we'll look at ways to spiff up what you have.
A COACH - Unless you insist on grand entrances, your car will do. There's lots of free parking at Stetson Hall, so that's one less thing to worry about.
TO BE A GOOD DANCER -- All the dances will be called and the basic steps will be demonstrated. Dance Mistress Stewart insists that if you can walk you can do these dances. If you can't perform a proper minuet, don't worry - none one else can either.
