The Dress and The Shoes
THIS is my dress. I’ll just pause there for you to admire. Gorgeous, isn’t it?
When Long Tall Sally offered to clothe me for the awards, I was SO thrilled – I am the first to admit I’m a hideously awkward shape, and certainly no fashionista – so I left the choices up to them, and just hoped for the best.
I was pretty confidant – I love their clothes, after all, and it is the one place that my husband can buy me clothes unaided, safe in the knowledge that they will actually fit my 5’11” (very round) frame.
They couldn’t have got it more right if they tried. I would never have picked this dress myself – but I love love LOVE it.
The fit is amazingly flattering, the colours gorgeous, the length, of course, is perfect, and it just feels wonderful on.
They also thought I might need shoes (quite handy) so plopped these in the parcel too…
Again – NOT my usual choice; I couldn’t tell you the last time I wore heels. But they’re stunning and I love them. And I managed to walk in them without falling off the heels.
Finally, just in case the journey home gets a little chilly, I even have this beautiful beaded shrug at my disposal.
Which is the first shrug I’ve ever owned, as they never ever do anything other than sit on my boobs. Not so with my Long Tall Sally version. It actually fits my exaggeratedly long back. Hooray Hoorah Hooroo!
Now – that’s the outfit sorted. WHAT do I do with the hair?
