Ok, so I’ve had a fashion disaster.
You plan the perfect dress for an event that you have been looking forward to for months. You store it away, pick the perfect shoes; get the right jewellery; all is well. You have the perfect flesh coloured bra to go under it that is practically new so you don’t need to buy a new one.
Two days before the event you try on the entire ensemble to make sure that everything looks right. Then, the disaster. The bra. Something’s happened to it in the washing machine. It’s broken. Panic.
So the red lace dress I was going to wear is now in the back of the wardrobe. Nothing else looks right under it and I don’t have time to get a replacement before the event. Time to improvise.
Luckily for me I have been on a bit of a buying spree this week. One dress that I hadn’t thought would be suitable for Plus North now turns out to be the one I am going to wear. It’s a magic dress.
Why magic? Because I feel amazing in it. You know when sometimes you try on a dress and the moment you look in a mirror, a massive smile appears on your face? This dress did that for me.
So whilst I am not wearing my confident red dress that I wanted, I have something else that makes me feel even better. Also, wearing this dress (black and grey leopard print); it gives me the ideal opportunity to wear the one thing in the world that my heart truly belongs to. Red shoes.
