Solving my dress dilema.

A few weeks ago, I asked for some help finding a dress for one of my best friends 40th birthday bash. After no help what so ever i managed to find the perfect one ... Thank god I shop a lot !
Again it was a French Connection which seems to be a major trend running through my wardrobe. For £135 I found this Tunic dress with gold embroidery. It's also an off white colour which is one of the main colours for spring/summer. I love french connection dresses as they always seem to fit so well and always come to a perfect length. This one was a little see-through though and therefor had to be worn with a white silk slip underneath, but looked great with mink/bronze heels and off white and gold jewelery.
However as the zip goes from neck to bottom of the spine its not the easiest think to get off after 1o or more drinks !

Although I didn't get a good full length photo here are two to try and show the colour and style a little better.

Julies Birthday dress got top marks though as I mistook it for a McQueen or Lacroix, she actually found it in a designer boutique on The Wirral and obviously teaming it with her fabulous nude Louboutins made it look even more glam. Again it was an off white colour with light gold lace Croatia .... we obviously have fabulous taste in dress colours ;)

Then came the celebrity guests ... Olivia Newton John and John Travolta ... otherwise known as Julie and John. who surprised all their guests with a routine to "your the one that i want" from Grease. Their costumes were particularly good, however Julies Kate Cuba shoes were alot nicer than Newton-Johns.

So all in all if Kate Middleton wants her wedding to be the event of April if not the year, shes got some serious work to do !
