Sequins and Pearls

They were invited guests. 
Normally a fraternity for the brotherhood only - tonight their ladies were invited.  Mr NZ invited the VJ's too.
She wore a little black number.  Glittering and bejewelled.
Pondering over sparkles or pearls ...
A favourite vintage black velvet bag.
With chintzy lining.
Ruby red lips and pretty heels.
They travelled in style.   Thanks C.
They wined and dined.
Each table named after a memorable woman of courage and substance.  
They danced. 
The Waltz, the Quickstep, the Cha Cha - some toe treading!
Thanks NZ's.  It was fun.
