We had a fancy Regency dinner in Dallas at Pappadeauxs, as an early birthday celebration for Jen. It was SO fun. The food was great, we had a private room (though the restaurant had booked a party in that room not long after us, the service was slow - which was not an issue for us, only for the party after us, and we got hassled by the people waiting), and though there wasn't much room for pictures, we managed anyway.
We also just missed some bad weather. We managed to get there right before it hit and it was over by the time we got out of dinner. It did make it hard to get a group pic since the ground was wet, but that's ok.
I wore my 1790s fashion plate gown.
Jen handpainted the trim on her gown, which was amazing. It was so beautifully done with the design being shaded and I don't know how it's so perfect because the design is so small. I was a big fan!
I had shrimp and scallops (of course). It was SO good. One of the best parts was the spinach believe it or not!

I am a big fan of what Ginger did with her silk American Duchess regency shoes:
