And so after a minor panic
I decided that I should search for the perfect dress, which had to hit just the right tone..
Which resulted in some increasingly interesting outfit ideas...
Which I felt perhaps should be discounted from the master plan
At which point I was very slightly concerned I still had nothing to wear, no biggie I remained perfectly calm about the whole thing obviously. Realising that the outfit is not the most important thing and spending time with people you care about and enjoying good conversation was the priority.
Until my boyfriend pointed out I own a dress shop and maybe I might be able to have a look at those dresses
So this story has a happy ending when I remembered the perks of the job. No doubt I will return to the dark wardrobe place though next time an event comes up!
