Happy St. Patrick's Day

Given that I and my husband have grandparents of Irish descent, St. Patrick's Day registers with us a bit more than it might with others, so luck o' the Irish to ye today!  I must admit I am a little put out by the fact that we were told last night we have to dance in front of our class during this evening's St. Patty's Day practise party (a waltz, not irish dancing, though I did take a River-Dance style Irish dancing class about ten years ago), so better go practise and figure out what the heck to wear ( I had bought a 30s dress that looks very much like Lucille Ball's below, but need something more floaty and waltz appropriate now).

No no no!! You must wear the shamrock dress!! How glorious! (and is that REALLY Lucille Ball! - didn't recognise her!)

To be fair, the dress I was gonna wear doesn't have shamrocks on it. BUT it's green and has ruffles and front lacing. Maybe I'll wear it after all, though hub. wants to go for more of a Fred & Ginger elegant look for our "solo" hahha
