Ahhh, another day, another fashion parade and champagne lunch.... and no, I'm actually not joking. Just quietly I'm getting a little fashion-paraded out, and I never thought those words would ever come from me! ....hehe. No, really, I have seen some truly lovely and inspiring clothes over the past couple of days, and today I was lunching together with my husband, so an extra specially nice treat for both of us.
I knew the venue for today was going to be more glitzy and glamourous than yesterday (yesterday's was more of a quietly dressy affair) so luckily I had all ready my glam, edgy cocktail dress that I finished recently ... I'm so glad I have this dress now, I'm so happy with how it turned out and there's nothing like being completely prepared for the social whirl of spring that can descend upon you with the suddenness of a tidal wave, causing unwary social butterflies who've failed to plan ahead to race out desperately shopping for a springtime dress, any dress, because they've suddenly realised they have absolutely nothing to wear and the events are starting to happen now now now.
