As promised, here I am in my new outfit for Hogmanay. I’m with my good friend and fellow blogger Joanna. Thanks, Leonard, for taking the photo!
It’s a taffeta skirt with a sash and a separate top. I’m wearing my wedding tiara as a choker (the jeweler who made the tiara converted it after the wedding) and I’ve already changed into my dancing shoes in the photo. The white bit in my skirt is the dance program, which is pinned by a ribbon to the waist of the skirt so I can glance at the directions before each dance. It seems to be hiding behind the sash.
Pluses: easy to wear, easy to dance in, easy to get in and out of (no need to get hooked or zipped by my helpful husband), shows off tiara/choker well. Minuses: shows off my flabby upper arms, required buying new underwear which still needs “Hollywood tape” to remain completely hidden, requires dry cleaning.
See you dancing!
