I probably don't need to describe to you the excitement that comes from getting dressed up and putting on a posh frock. Give me any excuse and I am there! So when Most Wanted from Vouchercodes offered to send me a party dress, on the condition that I wear it for a normal day, all day, and report back I thought it would be a pretty easy challenge...
I may have underestimated slightly! Let me tell you what a delicate beaded black party dress is not compatible with...
It's not a good dress to put your foundation on while wearing. It's not a good dress to paint your nails in. It's not a good dress to eat a ham and tomato sandwich in. And it's definitely not a good dress to have to run when you're late in!
It is a perfectly gorgeous party dress though, and I love it very much, I guess I just never realised how putting on a special dress alters the way I act.
When I'm dressed up I'm on best behaviour. I'm careful and I'm much more conscious of myself. In contrast in my everyday life I'm messy, I spill things, I sit on the floor and I leave cardigans crumpled on my chair, and the miracle of the washing machine means I just don't worry that much about it.
I definitely don't take as much care of my clothes as I should, and even just writing that down has made me go hang up three skirts and a blouse slung over a chair in my bedroom - I'm trying to get better!
So thank you Vouchercodes for the challenge - the dress was perfect, I think I need some work though!
