The Progress and The Frock..

WOW!! What an amazing few days and start to Mission;Style.. After clicking on various links I stumbled across the "stats" page for my blog ( who'd have thought this would be sooo clever ). Anyhow, I was blown away by the amount of pages views and comments so far after just 2 days - Mum, get the scrapbook out!!! 

I read this as 451 pages views so far and these are from as far a-field as OZ, India, the US of A, Germany, Italy, Spain and Brazil and I definitely do not have family in all of those places! 



Enough of bigging up my badself and on with the main reason for why I'm here...

As some of you know, I upload a daily outfit to WIWT and have been for 5 months or so. WIWT is the UK's largest on line outfit sharing site - totes amaze balls for getting ideas and generally being nosey at what others wear ( who doesn't love that?!? ) You can click the "widget" on the right hand side of my blog to see my daily ensembles, warts and all!! Since joining this site, it has made me focus on what I wear a little more and also made me dig out some stuff hiding in the wardrobe for sometime!

I don't claim to be a fashion guru, fashion/style is all about having a bit of fun yet, feeling amazing - its one thing you have to do for yourself everyday (unless you're the Queen, she probably doesn't get the sweats when she realises her fave top is on the ironing pile or still in the washing machine and now smells like wet dog..)

So to my first outfit post on here... After some thought, I decided to showcase the "Christmas Party Frock". 

Christmas Parties/Weddings = What if someone has my dress on? Hell, what if they look better than me? What if I'm over/under dressed? What are the potential outfit malfunctions related to said outfit when consuming a sherry or two? IT'S A MINEFIELD!!!

I invested a little bit of time in researching the frock (that means a lot) and if I'm honest, I think I struck gold! 1) No one else had it on 2) Perfectly suitable for the occasion/venue/crowd 3) Hmmm well, it's a full skirt which kept me on my toes in the galeforce winds outside the hotel and, the fabric is likely to be highly flammable - 2 out of 3 = winner!

The dress was £95 ( major bargain ) from Miss Selfridge and appeared to only be available online - so worth always checking websites for online specials and exclusives. These photos of the frock are actually from a special birthday celebration of a dear friend last weekend... YEAH, I'VE WORN THIS DRESS TWICE!! 






The belt was an early Christmas present from Our Kid (my affectionate name for my sister). It's from ASOS, £20 and still available online. It was my little twist to the dress and cinched in the waist (see Gok, I listened)!!




Down to the shoes ( hmmm, shoes ), these little beauties are Jimmy Choo from Selfridges. I bought them last year and have worn them to death, if I was to do a "cost per wear" I reckon I'd be near £7-8 per wear!! I know they are a luxury item but, how many pairs of shoes do you have that cost ( thinks of a number) £30 and you've worn once?? I know I have a few and for those without a calculator, that's £30 per wear... Its clear how I justify spending to myself, the Chancellor probably wants to thank me.... 

There it is, the first outfit and lots more chatter from me.... Did you have ever a "Dress-Mare"? Do you have any a luxury item ( or two ) you can't live without? 

If you've got this far, thanks for sticking with me and reading!!
