Budgetwise I'm not committed to anything. I don't have much of a social life, this dress will probably get one, maybe two run outs over the festive season so I'm not really looking to blow the bank on it. I have dark hair, fair skin, hazel eyes. I haven't had my colours done or anything like that, I tend to wear black....a lot......at these sorts of functions.
I have been fitted for bras and have a number of expensive good ones. The norkage is more of an issue in that a lot of dresses are built for people with smaller boobs which makes sizing an issue.
Wedges are black, but I'm not stuck to them. I like the dress, I think it might be a bit long for a short arse like me though, it falls below the model's knee which would make it mid calf on me. I like the ruched (sp?) detail on it though, that tends to work well on me.
I've had my eye on this for a while now. I know it might look a bit officey, but I think it's something that can be dressed up very well with some nice jewellery and a trusty pair of spanx it will look very smart.
Not a chance am I going on a diet. It's one night, people who I work with. They wouldn't be one bit impressed with how thin I suddenly have become , I haven't been working there long enough for anyone to notice. Just after a nice frock that'll hold me in in all the right places. I'm surprised that I would be able to get some Westwood for around the 300 mark, I thought it would be a lot more expensive.
