It’s a Friday, so bring on the party mood fab people!

Here’s a little black number I’ve prepared for tonight. While looking through my many pairs of shoes I tried on these River Island platforms, then decided I might as well take a pic or two for the Fab Fashion pages here.

And here, up close are the day’s platforms. A pair from River Island. I love how well they fit, not to mention that zipper at the front. I could certainly hop around in these the whole night.

Obviously I had to rummage around for a different pair of shoes. This pair of platforms would go well with something more casual, which our little hot dress is not. So, on to finding a more elegant pair for the night.

Here’s my dilemma: the evening is going to be filled with a lot of dancing AND to make my way to the venue I’ll need to walk past some muddy patches. You can imagine what that would do to a fabulous pair of heels. So I have to choose wisely – something in which I’ll be able to keep going all night long without breaking a limb and which can walk through some muddy patches without costing me an arm and a leg to repair, come Monday. Doesn’t sound that hard a thing coming up with a pair of shoes, right? Well, 90% of my shoes are super high heels of delicate fabric.

Fingers crossed, ’cause wrong choice and I lose a limb, one way or another.

Au revoir! Much love,

PS. I got asked if I made the dress myself (chuckle), guess I should mention the dress is from Karen Millen. The day I start making gorgeous dresses I’ll scream it out loud (joyously) from the top of Mt. Rwenzori 🙂
