I have noticed that fullness at the bottom of the dress and less frills higher up. Which is a good thing for us mature ladies... Roll Eyes

Nope, cat fur, and I've got plenty of it in different shades and colours.  Willing to sell cheap.

A slit along the left leg seems to be the "in" thing for smooth.

Oh!  The audacity of it!  I think I'm going to faint....

So, how long before they allow that in ballroom?  Wait a mo, I suppose there is no rule against it... hmmmm thinks...

I've seen a pro smooth lady dancing in palazzo pants some time ago (either last St. Louis starball or last year HOA?), I can't say I cared for that look. I've seen another pro-am lady doing all her styles in some type of a pantsuit and a practice pair of shoes, but I think she is an exception rather than rule. She is older (old enough to dance in senior championships), and I suspect she can't wear more conventional competition shoes anymore, so she had those costumes made so that they look normal with a practice pair.

I agree you have to go with what works for your figure and as you get older, a lower heel gives you better balance not sure if that is true but since my knee op I find a 3" heel is out of the question... I go for a 2" heel

Yep, I've noticed that too. Very popular at the moment and looks very elegant too. DP just bought a new dress like that on the weekend.

Hopefully buying the material for my Standard dress this week.  Gold this time around.  I like getting colours that others don't or are not that common.
