Dress to impress

Ah the mid-week point of joy, how I love thee. And with two sessions at the gym under my belt i'm feeling a-ok.

In the absence of any OOTD (i'm afraid the boyf is away and despite numerous attempts at creating a make-shift tripod with chairs and boxes the end result is still blurry and lop-sided)
I thought i'd post my dress-up pic from Jacques Townhouse last week. And I have to say ever since then i've become rather partial to a pair of gloves. I'm not talking about those little knitted mittens things of cold winter days (although I do love these also), but rather the dainty, satin lady-like gloves of times gone by. Such a small accessory can add so much glamour. Think Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O. Wear them to the wrist or full-length to the elbow. Vogue has also listed gloves as one of 'the' trends of Autumn/Winter 2010/11 (I know, i'm so on-trend right now, ha, ha).

Grace Kelly // Oscar winner, 1955

Audrey Hepburn // iconic doesn't even begin to describe this lady

And seeing as we're on the dressing-up theme I thought i'd post a few old fancy dress pics of mine - I'm rather partial to a bit of fancy dress!
