v lace bonnet

It’s happening!  I got nothing but ‘no’s from the local Catholic churches when I asked for permission to have our daughter baptised in France.  So the French priest agreed to do the ceremony without our local parish’s written consent.  Invitations are going out, Godparent names are getting inscribed and champagne is being stockpiled.  I am very excited to introduce Mlle to her paternal relatives.

I know what I am going to wear (I just have to find it and purchase it!) but what about Mlle?  Emily Post says that only Valencienne lace will do for such an occasion.  I see Mlle as more of a sporty type myself!
