But with birthday vouchers in hand, and clear directions from hubby that I was to get something for a fancy black tie gala ball we had last Saturday I was a woman on a mission.
Mind you I found this dress straight away and made my decision. Comfy and floaty and needn't worry about hosiery! We went to the Crown Palladium for the Classic Cars Gala Dinner which raised money for My Room Charity. So there were lots of classic cars which I must say the men loved looking at and drooling over. Me - I couldn't quite grasp their enthusiasm but like Maxabella discovered recently, sometimes it's nice to get out of one's comfort zone and I got that some people are just really into cars! I thought the little old classic Alfa was the best. I was later informed that was the most valuable at 1.5 million! huh - good taste i have!
And this little gorgoues Fiat 500 was auctioned off and bought for $16k - sorry folks I would've bid but I forgot my purse at home ;-)
Got to wear my fancy yellow heels with it too - although as soon as I got home I flung them off and couldn't be bothered putting them back on for the photos - but I'm sure you get the drift! We have a few Christmas functions coming up, so I'm sure this dress will be getting a lot more wear!
