Help with two cringe-tactic Christmas events please - jumper and fancy dress
Neither stylish nor beautiful but I have two work related (compulsory otherwise I would not be partaking!) Christmas events that require the purchase of:
A Christmas jumper - is it possible to find a nice winter themed jumper so that it can be worn again this winter? Without sounding all woe is me, it's the first Christmas since STBXH has left so feeling the pinch a bit financially.
Blues brothers fancy dress. Our work Christmas dinner has been consolidated into a bigger 'theme' night so the MD has dictated that we all need to come in fancy dress - easy for the men, not so easy for the women although my facial hair would go some distance towards classification as sideburns
jumper - pin tinsel on, get some green felt and cut out holly leaves, stitch on with some red beads.
Blues brothers - you could be a nun, girlfriend with the missile launcher (any outfit with a book under your arm labelled as the book she reads while doing her nails), a waitress type outfit for the diner scene, police outfit, choir robes, church lady (hat and shiny suit from a charity shop)
