So *mumble* weeks ago in November, Vanessa was in town and a bunch of us got together for a Downton Abbey dinner. It was super fun and I got to wear the gown I bought from Julia. I'd altered it which ended up not being hard, and wore my ebay tiara which was actually the right period. I wore my Jump dress replica earrings and a vintage necklace with a green stone which I may or may not have gotten from Stephanie's mom Linda. Gloria and I drove up together, which was fun - and we crashed at her parents house. All and all the trip went really smoothly!
Dinner - the food was fantastic - we had to sit at two different tables that were separated by floors, which was a shame, but we somehow managed to find a place right next door after dinner where we all sat together and had drinks! So a successful evening!

Most but not all of us:
My dinner - awesome risotto and pear cider - and a nutella hot chocolate from the second place we went:
And here we all are goofing around at a giant round table at the 2nd restaurant:
And a real group photo:
Gloria did manage to get a nice photo of my costume at the 2nd restaurant:
