Little Black dreams

Little Me wears: A Whistle & Wolf dress* and Primark shoes.

I guess you could say that I’ve always been classed as a fancy dresser even on casual days (my kinda casual still involves heeled boots – unless I’m not heading outside then it’s leggings and a jumper!) so I tend to struggle a little when it comes to the evening, because everything I own I class as day wear even if I purchased it from the party dress section. Of course this means that I could style it up differently but you know, boots and a leather jacket are as far as I go for day and night. But last week when out shopping with Mama Mcfred I found these shoes and decided that maybe it was time to spice things up and get some real proper party shoes.

It’s fair to say that Mama Mcfred had a right old giggle in the shop whilst I (attempted) tottered around declaring that these were a perfect fit and with that these were bought as an early birthday treat – they’re definitely still getting wrapped up because we love nothing more than unwrapping things. It seems I didn’t just stop there, and upon donning this beautiful dress at the weekend I pushed the boat out and sported an up-do… So it’s not exactly anything fancy, but hey, it’s a step up. And you know what? I don’t half quite like this look. Some would even say a little Zooey D (although I’m sure her feet see the sun more than mine ever do).

And as much as I love getting ready for a good old knees up, it’s fair to say I’d swap my dancing shoes for a night in with the girls anyday, and it seems I’m not the only one with 70% of women preferring this. At the end of the day, I’m all for a cheeky cocktail or two, but nothing beats a tasty hot chocolate and those warm slippers.
