So this years new years eve celebrations was going to be spent indoors drinking champers, watching Jools Holland and the big London firework display on TV.
I was talking to a friend on the morning of NYE who asked me what I was doing. She mentioned she had a spare ticket to a black tie event at Battersea Park and cordially invited me. How could I refuse such a lovely invite plus this belle had never been to a ball. Panic then set in quickly as to what to wear as I had a few hours before the shops closed. I rushed to the nearest House of Fraser to find THE special dress that was going to make me look a million dollars but without the price tag. Luckily the sales are in full swing so plenty of bargains were to be had. I tried on various long dresses (it had to be a floor length gown of course as I wanted to wear something extra special). I tried on a variety of dresses from lace to a dress with a very daring split. I also wanted to look classy and chic as this was a ball after all.
