|Gabriella Sandals: Miss KG* (purchased with vouchers from John Lewis)|
When my sister and I were little, our nan used to buy us a new dress for just about every occasion (I guess that's where I get *that* from) and it would always be that we'd have dresses which were ever so slightly different, but pretty much the same (BHS, Marks and Spencer and Debenhams had a lot to answer for in the 90s). There was 2yrs between us, but we spent out formative years being asked if we were twins. Being dressed like that for family occasions or whatever. probably didn't help. I digress.
My point was, this dress with it's shiny, fruit print fabric, V-shaped back, full skirt and *huge* bow to tie at the waist, is basically a grown up version of exactly the type of thing I would have worn to parties as a kid. And for that nostalgic little feeling, I love it.
So, what's the perfect thing to finish off your party outfit? I couldn't resist a pair of sparkly shoes and a matching, impractically-sized bag. I was pretty pleased with these shoes when I spent some John Lewis vouchers on them a little while back, but even more pleased when I realised I had enough points saved up on one of my online survey sites to cash in for some House of Fraser vouchers, and that they sold the matching glittery bag. Which is pretty awesome. I felt a smidgen guilty that I might be cheating on my spending ban, but I think I'm happy that vouchers don't count as a proper spend.
