The 3-Ds and their significant others are attending the Blogville 'Valentine's Ball' put on by Mollie of "Mollie and Alfie" and her woofie friend Ranger.  It's a fancy dress ball, so all of the participants, both feline and canine. are dressed to the nines.  Each of our mancats is in top hat and tails (even if the tails be their furry own), and each of our ladycats is dressed in a gorgeous gown accessorized by exquisite jewelry to enhance it.

There is lots of music and dancing, and general merriment abounds. Cupid's arrows are flying efurrywhere!  No one can deny that love is in the air at this affair.

 Dante has chosen a classic top hat, and a black with pink-striped bowtie befitting the occasion.  Lovely Sascha is a vision in pink!  Her gown is made of light pink tulle with a heart pattern, and a neckline trimmed in flowers of a deeper hue.  She's wearing a tiara studded with pink sapphires, and around her neck is, of course, her stunning engagement necklace.  Dante and Sascha Forever, indeed!

Dylan, also, is in a traditional top hat.  His red, black and white bowtie coordinates with his fiance Halle's gown.  Halle, of "Jacqueline's Cat House", is wearing a diamond tiara which complements the diamonds in her engagement collar.  Her gown is the colour of a deep red rose, and is afire with sequins which echo the sparkle in her eyes.  Red roses are definitely the order of the day for these two; their passion for each other is never far from the surface.

 Milo of "The Cat's Meow" is accompanying his longtime girlfriend, Domino, to the Ball.  They have chosen a funkier kind of fashion called "Steampunk"!  Note the black and red-tinged top hat with leather band and decorative chain.  Milo's multicoloured paisley bowtie is also adorned with some metal gears.  Miss Domino is wearing a gold lace gown adorned with black and pink feathers with a bonnet to match.  Her chain necklace adds that mechanical touch to her vintage style.  Somehow 'Steampunk' is very aPURRpos for these two 'cause it's just like their relationship -- hot and steamy!

Note:  'Steampunk' refers to a fashion subculture that focuses on the styles from the late 19th Century, encompassing styles from both the Victorian era and the Old American West. Steam comes into the equation as this time period ushered in the Industrial Revolution when most machinery was driven by steam.  The fashion incorporates wheels, chains and gears, etc. which pay homage to the internal workings of the steam-powered inventions.  The combination of vintage attire with these funky or 'punky' quirks is the basis for the term "Steampunk".

Along for the ride are Milo's brother Alfie, also of "The Cat's Meow", and Alfie's girlfriend Cory of the "Cory Cat Blog".  They too are digging the Steampunk vibe.  Cory is lovely in her white and black striped satin gown with black lace neckline, and coordinating polka-dot bow.  Her hat, too, is well matched to her dress.  She is wearing jewels which complement both her eyes and her outfit.  Alfie is dapPURR in his green and gray suede top hat, trimmed with rust-coloured leather.  His suitcoat is cut from the very same cloth, and his paisley bowtie serves to accent the entire ensemble.  He, too, is 'geared' up for the occasion.  Alfie rose to the occasion with a half-dozen of the white variety for his lady love.

Whether traditional or Steampunk, there's no doubt that these four couples are into the spirit of Valentine's Day!  Though they're having so much fun dressing up for the Ball, they know what's really important requires no embellishment at all.  It truly is a matter of the heart!

And so we wish you all, a very HEARTY Valentine's Day!

P.S.  Just in case you're interested, here are the Valentine's Day cards that each of the 3-Ds made for their sweethearts.
