On mab: Purple and hot pink mesh top, accompanied by a strand of pink and gold beaded jewelry, a large costume jewelry ring, and hot pink fingernails. Lipstick (which was gone by this time due to the cheesecake) was also bright pink

On K-la: Black top with chiffon sleeves and gold embroidery with gold sequin accents, and large hoop earrings.

Both ladies sported a large belly. Neither lady felt like a big ‘do this year. We kept it simple.  Big hair can so often clash with big bellies.
