No, I am not getting married!
When an occasion arises on my social calendar, my very first thought is: what should I wear?
From there, I start looking for the dress, which should be a starting point. However, I do have a tendency to get side tracked – I start looking at what I call “secondaries” – shoes, bags, jewellery and hair pieces to go with a dress I haven’t found.
Then I do the wrong thing – fall in love with a secondary. So I start looking for the perfect dress for my fascinator. Or shoes.
So this time, for and August wedding, I knew I wanted red. To go with my Louboutin soles. So I found a red/black fascinator, which was sold out. So I trawled the internet looking for the same materials to make myself a fascinator that looked like the one I fell in love with. Then I finally found a dress. it looked like my plan got together, 4 months before the wedding.
Needless to say, I was very happy with my outfit. But then tragedy stroke. I heard that the wedding was to be way more informal than I thought. My perfect outfit was so fitting anymore.
Shock. Panic. Horror.
I decided I needed a new dress! And this time it came naturally. During a casual stroll I found a lovely coral dress and bought it.
Now, that caused me another problem the shoes and fascinator, but that’s another matter altogether…
