We are going on a cruise with Celebrity next month and I have to pack two outfits that meet the criteria for ‘Evening Chic’. In previous years I would have chosen a full length gown or something blingy, but as I’ve matured, although I still like a bit of sparkle, I favour a more toned down look.
For my first outfit I’m packing this Phase Eight sleeveless dress. I am wearing Wingz underneath to give the appearance that it has sleeves. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, at 55, my arms are not as firm as they used to be. Secondly, cruise ships are a bit chilly in the evenings and as pashminas seem a bit passé now, I need a cover up. The Wingz were sent to me for the purpose of review and I think they look pretty good with this dress, so I’ll definitely be packing them.
Onto the shoes. These are the Charlotte Olympias that I won last year and try as I might, I just can’t do anything but totter in them. I look ridiculous. If anyone wants to make me an offer they are size four and have never been worn (apart from trying on!). They won’t be making the edit that’s for sure, but I have some black spiky Carvelas that will work.
Next up is to figure out outfit number two!
