Wishing For A Party Dress


Trying to decide on what to buy as Christmas gifts for those who help me all year and, man, at the moment, it’s making my head hurt.

I want to say thank you so much for all you do, have a lovely holiday season whilst trying not to make anyone feel like they have to get me something back.  This usually translates into a delectable treat of food and drink.

Am currently dithering over Fortnum’s biscuits with a prosecco/cassis combo for Kir Royale’s; a wine/cheese option; fizz/salted caramel choc’s choice or … gods, I don’t know …

Must be time to look at something pretty, pretend I have my young, carefree, party lifestyle back and covet this beautiful outfit from last week’s Financial Times in How To Spend It (I didn’t have a ton of financial responsibilities then either …!).

I would have looked good in this – preferably in black tho’.

Happy days.
