I was lucky enough to go to a fabulous party last night with the other half, it was to celebrate an big anniversary for his work. Now then given that I didn't know anyone and given how helpful boys are about what to wear I was on my own in the outfit decision dilemma! Anyhow as it was very hot so I opted for a short summer dress which I bought from New look a couple of years ago, alas no longer available but if one does come up on e-bay its a worthwhile investment! The belt is from Next (bought straight from the shop in an XL, they have some superb belts and they can cope with my waist (I refer you to blog title!). Shoes were also from Next a couple of years back and are very versatile.

Here is a close up showing my splash of colour for the evening which was lemon (I do have a (formerly) beautiful lemon pashmina but I put it through the wash and its just not the same!) Anyway I love lemon and I think it goes beautifully with black and white (just softens the monochrome a bit). The butterflies are from a little shop in Brighton sensation http://www.sensationlondon.co.uk/shop/ -they do some gorgeous things. I will get on to the nails in a bit! My glasses are Prada, I'm unlucky to be rather short sighted so lenses cost a fortune -hence I always buy designer glasses in the hope they will last a bit longer!
