We’ve been invited to a good friend’s party in London this weekend. I know it’ll be a trendy crowd, so I want to wear something that won’t hurt the eye.
For me the weather is always a problem, because, as you know if you’ve been following my trials and tribulations with getting dressed for functions, I hate being hot or cold. And I know all the most interesting people at this party in will be spending all their time in the garden. Luckily for once, it’s supposed to be quite nice this week-end, so anything faintly summery will do. I also don’t want to wear uncomfortable shoes if I’m to stand all night, which at parties I usually do. So the Painful Pradas are out of question (again). And I’m not as slim as I used to be, and since I’m no longer 25, I don’t want to wear anything too young. On the other hand I do not want to become invisible in some perfectly well suited for my age, stylish thing. Like an Agnes B black dress…
I have a little time to do shopping in town on Friday, but I also know very well that my wardrobe almost certainly already has the item – or items – I could wear to be something in between, ‘Too young, trying to hard to be trendy’ and ‘Too old, stylish but boring’.
So as usual, I turn to you, the fashion bloggers for advice.
