Linking to Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday – with something a little different from me this time!
As promised this is the result of my ‘Formal Attire’ occasion. Above is the navy blue jersey dress by ASOS. I was pretty decided on not buying anything designer or super expensive, afterall it’s not going to be a work horse item for me 🙂 Everything else I already owned, however I did purchase some new make up stuff that’s long overdue.
So, you see how I’m a couple of feet shorter than the model 😉Dame Helen Mirren looked good enough to eat! ‘Mr Cruise, I know I make you look tall but I’m already spoken for…!’ 😉 Daniel was indeed the best!I even had an audience with the Royal Family so it was a very successful evening!
I got around that night….. As the weather turned cool and wet, this little velvet jacket saved my life! It’s unworn in a silk mix velvet by Zara I found in a charity shop about 2 years ago. The gold beaded bag was also a charity shop find (from the 90’s) last carried at a wedding. The shoes are by Lara Bohinc from several seasons ago also here and here. Earrings are vintage and the cocktail ring is by Kenneth Jay Lane. And though I was on my feet for over 4 hours, there was no blistering or anything at all – that’s what I call a well designed pair of shoes and they’re 4″ high! My children approved of my look except for the thigh high split, my 8 year old girl wanted me to sew it up 🙂
