Those of you who know me well (espesh the
red brown haired cousin if she’s reading) will know that I have an annoying habit of counting down my birthday from the beginning of December every year so that I am not forgotten in the midst of the festive celebrations- it’s on Dec 28th don’tcha know
I also always end up saying I’ll do something different, but I pretty much end up in exactly the same place every year with nearly the same group of friends. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
This year the one thing that is drastically different is the fact that I’m single. Not that I didn’t already, but it now means I have to make even more of an effort with the way I look, which frankly I find annoying.
This year I have been searching low and high for the perfect dress and do you think I can find it? Nope. What I find more annoying is that I have the perfect pair of tights I want to wear (Jonathon Ashton suspender tights) I just can’t find the right dress that a) compliments them or b) is short enough to reveal a little bit of the said tights.
Usually I find Topshop reliable but nope, nothing. So I turned to ASOS and all I could find was this Lipsy animal print prom dress. I don’t own anything from Lipsy as I usually don’t like the brand on me but in these extreme circumstances I have ordered it just in case.
I have a feeling it will look hideous on and won’t fit the boobage but I’ll give it a try. What do you think? Does it look cheap and tacky?
In the meantime if you see any party frocks you think I might like please, please, please let me know. I can’t find any for love nor money.
