This week, since arriving back in sunny Wandsworth from Florence, I haven’t been completely idle and I thought I’d give you my week update in photos 😊
I am going to make a quick interlude here and say that I was passing Victoria Secret’s and thought I would pop in and have a look. And I am going to make a small judgement on any girl who sends her boyfriend into this shop – seriously, no man should have to enter unless they genuinely want to (like the man I accidentally caught on camera on the far left). There are THREE WHOLE FLOORS of knickers and bras, and it’s extraordinarily overwhelming – I like shopping, and I wasn’t coping entirely. How many different types of pants can there be – someone really needs to get a balance between M&S’s boring black and white, and the circus show that is Victoria Secret’s – I just need to buy some new pants.
I am going to let you into a small secret, one which I may regret 😳. I am often looking for full length dresses 👗 (all this reeling 💃) and they are tricky to find at a price that means you don’t need remortgage your house 🏡💵. However, Debenhams has a line called Quiz. And Quiz makes full length dresses UNDER £70. I know, I know, it seems ludicrous – but really they do exist. Ok the material is not exactly luxurious, you have to accept there will be some diamante 💎, and trying on is an absolute must. But for reeling they are fantastic, as, if we are honest, reeling is more of a hardcore sport 🏃 than dainty dancing 💃, and by the end of a night of reels, plus further dancing in some insalubrious nightclub your dress doesn’t always come off best. So at £70 a pop (and they are often in the sale, I’ve got one before for £30) they are a very good investment. The other key factor is that they are exactly the right length – none of this taking up business, which is such a bore (I really need to learn to sew ). I always find most full length dresses are made for incredibly lengthly females and it just isn’t working on my 5ft 4ness. So whoever you are that is making these dresses, you are wonderful and please do continue, they fit me incredibly well – I really like the navy one in the image above. And please can you all not rush out instantly and buy one, as it would be so boring if we all ended up wearing the same dress to the ball 💃😉
