Frocktober - day six
It is serious corporate wear today. I haven't worn this dress since last summer and I had forgotten just how much I like it. However it is my only dress with a high neckline so occasionally if I don't think about it as I sit down I throttle myself.
I did go dancing in my black and white pansy dress last night. It has a great skirt for dancing, not too flared and all revealing which is nice. However the straps didn't want to stay in place so a few times I think I flashed a bit of bra - luckily I was wearing a nice black and white one which matched the dress! Oh well, such are the issues of dancing in dresses.
Last night was one of those nights which confirms what a magical activity dance really is. A couple of my good friends had not had the best of days. One had a day which can really only be described with a string of expletives. But after a dance or two, they were all smiling and feeling remarkably better for it. I think it is a combination of the exercise, music and friends - with maybe a little touch of indefinable pixie dust magic - that does it. I certainly know that even on the nights where I have to pry myself away from the couch and drag myself in, I always have a great time. Next time, however, I might just dance test my dress first!
