Some things are just not meant for doing the dishes in and this slinky dress, which I bought in a charity shop as part of my self imposed ‘Under-a-tenner’ outfit rule, is it. As nice the silky pleats are, the loose shape does make the thing I grab when I’m lounging at home. But then it gets in the way of domestic goddess-ing work…aka the washing up. It’s just too goddamn slinky. So I took some funny hair clips which have never actually been in my hair to clip up the sleeves and lo and behold, a cheap trick of shifting the dress about is born….
Oh dear lord, did I just write a paragraph about washing-up and fastening sleeves up with hair clips? I’m feeling myself sinking into a real Carrie Bradshaw ‘sock drawer’ article low (nope, haven’t seen the bloody film yet… but I am praying to make PR’s STOP emailing me pointless SATC movie related products/trends….).
