So, what did I wear to this fabulous event full of glamour, you might ask? Well, back in June I had talked about this dress on the blog:
It was nearly done but then I put it aside because I wasn´t satisfied with the whole thing (cryptic instructions and my non existing experience...). Two or three weeks ago I put it on again and decided that it wasn´t that bad at all and that I should at least finish it. But I was convinced that I´d never ever make another version with nicer fabric. Well, long story short, I finished it, dyed it black (it´s the same orangy fabric I used for my last two projects), put it on and loved it. Even the Mr. loved it (also, but not exclusively, for two obvious reasons). It´s still far from perfect but I´ll def wear it again. And I´ll sew it again. Next year.

The shoes are from Deichmann and
were a christmas gift from the Mr. in 2008.
|The belt is a recent gift from a colleague and I love it.|
