I feel the need for a midi-dress

I’ve got a hot date at lunctime with my ladies – we’re off to Chez Bruce, because we is that posh. (It’s amazing that I ever get any work done, really, with all this gadding and blogging.)

In an unprecedented wave of sensibility, I have just talked myself out of doing a mad dash to Oxford Circus to buy a midi-dress for the occasion. Lunch is at 12:30pm and I would have been getting on the tube at 10:15am – even I’m realistic enough to accept that it would have been a ridiculously tight squeeze to get to Topshop, get home, write one feature and this blog post, get ready, get to the restaurant on time.

I’ve decided to wear the infamous Manolos instead – if nothing else, it will prove to him indoors that they do ‘come in handy’. It doesn’t really matter what I wear with them. Jackpot, indeed.

But I still need that midi-dress – for general wear and mincing about in. Which one is the next question….
