Now that there is a little more organisation in my sartorial life, I can put together proper outfits from long lost treasures. I have had these shoes for years and bought the blue dress fairly recently (also Dior). We are spoiled with the British high street, and Zara is fab, but every now and again I pick up a garment like this and realise there will always be a place for beautifully made designer clothes.
It was all going swimmingly, matching shoes bag and dress, I was feeling smug, squeezed into the dress and then....rip....the seams didn't stand a chance against my rather sizeable buns of steel. The needle and thread were quickly employed and unbelievably the remedial action lasted for the whole evening, including bending down to get into a low car and eating a three course meal!
