Adventures In Cravate Noire.

I distinctly remember proclaiming with unashamed envy – as my husband bought a new suit for the occasion – that I wanted to be invited to a black-tie dinner. I’d never been to one.

I knew the sort of thing I’d wear. A dress, of course, full-length perhaps – or backless. I’d wear the highest-of-heels and big big earrings.

The new suit buying was a couple of years ago now, and so the recent invitation came with less than perfect timing – between chemo cycles, on a date when several layers of concealer will most certainly be required.

But, I’m invited! And whilst initially disappointed about being unable to ‘do’ the event as I had previously imagined black-tie to be. I realised it was, in fact, a challenge!

A chance to wear something completely different, and so the quest for The Outfit has very much begun. For glam flats, I can walk in. Sleek lines – tailoring, and more sequins than Saturday-night Strictly.

I’m feeling ready to pop my black-tie cherry. Whether I’ll make it past 10.30 p.m., is, unfortunately, a less certain matter.

    Oh my goodness please say you got the red shoes, they are beautiful!
    If not then you need to word up Father Christmas so he can put them under the tree!
