A dress but not quite as far as a cocktail dress. Maybe the sort of thing you would wear to a wedding or a nice dinner. Where are you off to?

A military function I'm guessing?

I usually wear a smart skirt suit with smarter shoes than I would wear to work and some glam jewellry and hair.

TBH as a girl you can get away with anything from normal work wear to evening wear.

Sounds perfect!

I have a great booklet given to us when I joined up about all the different military dress codes and the civilian equivalents. It's aimed at "wives" and as single serving Officers in our own right we were all quite put out when we were given it..............but actually it's bloody useful blush especially as I am a "wife" myself now grin

Unfortunately it's in the UK so no help tonight (although I think you're on a winner with the dress you described) but I could scan it and send you a copy once we move back (if I can find it)

Chair of the wives committee? How drunk were you when they asked you? And I assume you finally got a quarter then?

Is it the syndicate thingy you're going on? Have you been to the wives' brief yet? That's where Pink Cords Man turned up.
