About the same time as I bought this dress, I also bought this black lace number from Ebay. It's by an Australian brand called Sarah Jane. I had kind of had it in mind for this party and didn't really think much about what I was going to wear until yesterday.

When I tried it on again I wasn't too sure if I was really feeling the black lace thing, particularly since the UK is currently in the grips of a rather unexpected heatwave, something which has only increased my love of pastels and candy colours.
In the end, I was rather pleased with it. It's actually a little bit big (I love being able to say that!;) but it was very comfortable and not too hot for the soaring temperatures.
I did however compromise by bringing out the clown make up.
A splash of mint green eyeshadow, matching nails and a slick of cherry red lipstick took care of my colour fix.
I was so pleased with how my make up turned out. I am usually so cackhanded with anything to do with hair & beauty and, even after 15 years of application, I still take a chance that both my eyes will look the same whenever I use gel eyeliner.
The deco style bag was from Primark a few years back.
It was a good night. A family gathering of the most traditional fashion, embarrassing uncles, vol au vents, drunk granddads, lots of kids running around the dance floor. Great stuff!
This song was in my head all day. Quite appropriate really.
