I was excited, and had a fun day planned. Time to give a new dress its first test run. This was sent to by Collectif (use REE10 for a wee discount on their site), and I have to say anything with tartan trim gets my vote. I was in such a good mood, I decided to get my girdle out. I used to many more authentically vintage pieces and wore stockings a lot, but in the last couple of years I've returned to the comfort and ease of tights. But this dress deserved seamed stockings.
I must have jinxed my day with my anticipation, as after waiting at a Starbucks for an hour, as well as at a cocktail bar (both drinks were yummy of course!), my plans got postponed to much later. After laddering my stockings on the way home, I settled down with a glass of wine.
Our plans don't always go as we'd hope, but there's always a way to turn things around. It's that classic line of, we can't control what happens but we can always control how we respond.
Anyhoo, my day ended well, and the dress was a dream to wear. It didn't ride up when I walked, and wasn't tight on the shoulders as I sometimes find fitted dresses to be (my boobs may be the cause of that I suppose). Can't wait to wear it again, and give it the fun day out that it deserves.
