How to Marry a Millionaire


Happy New Year everyone.  What did everyone get up to last night?  I did plan to stay in and watch movies and eat nibbles.  But a bottle of prosecco and a few gin and its later, i wanted to go out.  At 9.30pm i got my glad rags on and headed to the pub next door.  PJ to pub in 15mins, not bad ;)

 My dress is heavily inspired by a dress Marilyn wore in How to Marry a Millionaire, designed by her favourite dress maker William Travilla.  Although the colours in the above image aren't the true colours of the actual dress, see below for the original dress.  I really liked the deep red mixed with gold.

A group of people told me that i looked like a movie star!  Oh darling one does try!

 I could wear cocktail dresses every day.  There should be more opportunities in life to dress up and 2013 i am going to make those opportunities!


Here's to 2013! Cheers!
