Gaah. Am speaking at lovely books and bubbles event next week and have no idea what to wear.
Would buy something but am hopeless shopper. Shopping MoJo ruined by years of abject poverty. Now always trying to buy fictional Ultimate Garment. Ultimate Garment is one suitable for Banquet, Barbecue and bush walk, has built in flattering Nancy Gantz type arrangement and no ironing needed. As Ultimate Garment does not exist, end up buying cake or delicious almond croissant Mmmm.Mmmm
When was v.v. poor would get by wearing Tshirt with dg logo, in manner of company uniform but will not suffice in this instance, as is hoity toity champagne type event.
Publicist suggests wearing "jeans and a sparkly top, what you'd wear to a party..."
Clearly no idea that last party I attended completly populated by 14 yr old boys and comprised skateboarding DVD's, delivery pizza and farting contest - not a sparkly top in sight.
Tried out shopping on saturday, went to nice Milford mall with lovely shops, greeted many times by chirpy assistants saying how are you, hows your day going, many many times.
Raked through racks but all seemed too long, too short, too shiny, to tiny, too expensive - tried on expensive one anyway - liked a lot (must have been skinny mirror.)
What should I do?
Borrow - again
Buy Sparkly top and wear with slightly too tight jeans (lay off cake in interim)
Buy whole outfit - what and how much is normal amount to spend on such outfit?
all suggestions gratefully recieved.
