Just to let you know that I am off today, not so much for a change of scene as a change of rain. We are heading away from the Birmingham rain, to the Anglesey rain, which, with its Royal connections, is obviously a far superior kind of rain to the type we have here. I have scheduled a couple of posts to come out on Monday and Tuesday but it may go a little quiet after that, depending on whether my dongle works or not!
We were off out to a friend’s birthday party last night and given the chance to dress up, I thought that I should make the most of it.
Here is a closer look at the dress which I showed you a couple of days ago. I found it at Reiss in Bicester – it has been there for ages in fact – at least since the last time I went but that didn’t put me off. (Although maybe it should have)?!! It was reduced from £189 to £126 to £76 and my husband declared that it was a “bargain”. Little did he realise the effect of his comment! Green light or what? I wonder whether he realises just quite how many “bargains” there are to be had out there at the moment.
I loved the vibrant green colour. I have had a green Jigsaw dress for many years but it is falling apart at the seams and needed replacing. People always commented on the colour when I wore it and being of a fair (OK, pale) disposition, a bit of colour is good for me. The length was also very civilised!
I didn’t get a chance this week to find the right necklace to go with it, so opted to go without one. Sometimes less is more. I also wore the sparkly Dune shoes which I bought for the party I had at Christmas and which you can see here
Fortunately my friend whose birthday it was brought along some tape to hold it in place as again, I didn’t have time to get any, which saved us all from embarrassment!
