'spotlight' by warehouse toga dress, stainless steel bangle from hongkong, stuart weitzman jet mirror alto platform pumps.
excuse the weird facial expressions...i get like that sometimes. i smile plenty normally, just not when im alone and facing my small camera.
wore this to a dinner party over the weekend... it was specified "dresses or nothing at all for the ladies", so i chose the former. haha. the photo was taken POST-dinner...and mind you this wasn't just your typical fare of hors d'oeuvrs and canapes...NO. it was a fullblown 7course individually plated Cantonese dinner.
lovely food, washed down with copious amounts of chinese tea, champagne and white wine.
i realise you cant see...but the toga side of the dress is actually a big satin bow! very SJP if i say so myself, and that's actually why i bought the dress in teh first place. its from warehouse's line for special occasions, spotlight. this dress is no longer in stock but many similar styles are still up for grabs. check it out! :)
ok facebook has yielded a photo of the big blue bow!
what's a girl to do with champagne and wine? why, have both of course! :) xx
