Nothing simple about these souvenirs

Holiday in Dixie Cotillion King LIX Mike Adams holds onto am armload of his lavalieres that he presented Thursday to board members at the Cotillion Club board meeting. Although they were still under wraps when he entered, I understand it was designed to look like a piece of jewelry that one would expect the socialites of Newport to have worn at the turn of the 20th century.

"It is stunning," said Susan Falbaum, in an e-mail.

So they perfectly fit the Cotillion theme: "A Royal Newport Cotillion in America’s Gilded Age."

The lavalieres are sort of the king’s badges and are traditionally given to officials and friends.

Can I just call them glittery souvenirs of a very special event!

I can’t wait to see Mike’s.
