If Cinderella Needed a Ball Gown for the Holidays. Forget the Pumpkin, Go Cedar

Buried deep within the Festival of Trees in Tacoma, Washington, a gown to go with Cinderella’s glass slippers for the Holiday Ball.

Will my Prince notice me in this dress? Screw the shoes, I’m using the glass slippers for book ends.

This elegant re-imagination of a Christmas tree sent my imagination down a dark back road to Oz.

Cinderella could unplug the lights and hide from her evil stepmother in the woods.

What would I do with it?

Make it into my own designer DIY Christmas tree. The top doubles as a tree skirt. Who in my neighborhood is going to have gold-painted, peacock feathers? It already comes pre-lit.

Versatile, yet classic, the rest of the year it stays on the dressing dummy in the living room, add a few drops of pine or cedar scented oil and voila it’s designer pot pourri.

Thus answering the question, “I can only wear it once, and Nordstrom’s won’t take it back, what do I do?”

To go with our mixed message of winter and summer, how about a little snippet of steel drum action from Seattle, playing Sleigh Ride in front of Nordstrom. Take it away gentlemen.
