Wouldn’t you though?
Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Wouldnt you though features here.
So let’s see. Bright colours. Lace. Pleating. Florals… Yup, this Marc Cain dress from luxury Thame boutique Gallivant just about has the entire Spring/summer trend thing covered.
Having gone to a meeting last week with a hole in the thigh of my jeans and stitching entirely undone from the armpit of my top (I know, the shame of it) I’ve decided to stick my hand in my pocket this season and buy some new clobber.
I went to Ascot for the first time ever last weekend and had a bit of a fashion wake up call with the dress policy, as my usual uniform of jeans and trainers is so below the bar it’s virtually nestling in the undergrowth.
I ended up wearing the same ‘party’ dress I’ve been wheeling out since last year, but I think I’ve found a new fancy frock to shock my daughter, who will no longer be able to ask her favourite dagger-to-the-heart question, ‘Mummy, why do you always dress like a man?’. Joy indeed!
