February seems to be the month for charity events galore. With at least one black-tie event a weekend (and actually two next weekend), there’s serious pressure on the wardrobe to perform. Add to that a salon blowout for each event, the mani/pedi and all the accompanying grooming, and it’s almost a full time job just getting out to each event!
The fabulous charity SOS Children’s Villages threw a spectacular bash with a Valentine’s theme at the Millenium Hotel in Belgravia to raise funds for children without homes or family in Pakistan. Dress code was either traditional or black tie, so I opted for the latter, knowing that the following week I’d definitely be wearing traditional (post on that coming up soon).
Friday nights are not my best ones for getting uber-dressed up, so I went for the lazy girl’s option, donning a full length, asymmetric Halston Heritage dress that is the perfect LBD for just about any occasion. It needs very little else, so with an intricate golden vintage collar and matching cuff (which you can’t see in the photo), Zagliani clutch and Jimmy Choo strappy sandals, I was good to go.
Cinderella, you shall go to the ball!
