Given the current pandemic situation, this should be the least of my worries but I cannot help but wonder about festive balls this winter. Although chances are slim, it won’t stopping me dreaming about the most beautiful gowns.
Goddiva is an old favourite of mine, especially this time of the year: they never fail to stock the most glamorous dresses for all celebratory occasions.
I might be celebrating Christmas in a very small group, if any, this year, but I am hoping I will give these beautiful dresses an outing.
Of course they will be styled and posted as they deserve, but for now, I cannot help to think how much I will be able to dress up and show up.
Will I don gorgeous evening maxi dresses that shimmer when the light hits?
Am I going to fall into the exhaustion of multiple Christmas dos? Spoiler alert: don’t hold your breath.
I will miss all the festive struggles below and the many questions that come with it:
Am I going to struggle to transition between seasons choosing between autumn and winter dresses? Could I get a multi-tasking one?
What colour to pick to stand out? Are my accessories popping? Dress up or down? (Always up btw)
What is going to be that dress everyone has this season?
Will I have enough dresses to cover he events in my diary? How far can I get away with shorter, lighter dresses before moving completely to winter dresses?
Hell, the only question I can ask at the moment is: “will I even be in a situation requiring me to squeeze into a pretty dress in the foreseeable future?”, as there not many answers at this uncertain times.
One thing is for sure: I am prepared. And as the magpie that I am!
I got these three beautiful dresses from Goddiva: one straight from a fairy tale, sparkling navy and blush ombrè, a flowy silver sequin number that screams studio 54 and a sexy dark red gown with a fish tail that wouldn’t be out of place on Jessica Rabbit.
And I am ecstatic with my selections. I have worn quite a few of their dresses before and they are always a hit: the designs, the fit, the material, the quality – all with great value.
However the end of 2020 turns out to be, I promised myself I will drape myself in sequins, sparkle and happiness. Even if it is dinner for one, but hopefully we will all be able to have loved ones around – that alone, is worth celebrating!
