Last Friday my work held its annual dinner and the theme was 'A touch of gold'. I was going to wear a gold and black 1960's brocade dress but when I saw this 1940's blue lace dress I couldn't resist.
Then it was just a matter of finding some gold accessories to match the dress and theme. I had this great goldtone 1960's charm bracelet that I hadn't worn due to it sounding like jingle bells but love. I then found a gold headpiece at a high street shop that was perfect and very cheap which then tied into the ring I chose which has a leaf motif.
My current obsession with hoop earrings was an obvious choice and then....false eyelashes (I hadn't worn falsies since my University days) and some gold pigment for eye shadow. Now I don't wear too much makeup normally so I was freaking out my daughter, or maybe freaking isn't the word, more like amusing her.
Standby for the glamour shot, channeling Phryne Fisher.
I was enjoying my night too much to remember to take any photos so the only one that was taken was on the dance floor (yes I did get up to have a dance, after copious glasses of champagne I am game for most things)
Oh and I did wear my fake fur jacket that I have been dying to wear woohoo! I love it.
And then home in a taxi, yes this is a taxi not a police car as it might seem - I didn't drink THAT much to become a delinquent, just enough to have a good time and arrive home after midnight! Gasp!
I love dressing up and never get the chance, someone invite me to a fancy party please so I can plan my next outfit x
