Skinny Black Tie and a little help from Girl Friday

The Mommydo post hiatus you recently experienced brought to you by a stomach bug which crashed our long weekend by taking down the kids one after another then lying in wait 4 days before knocking me out for almost 4 more.

Conveniently, said bug left me a whole 8.5 lbs lighter which is perfect timing for the fundraising gala husband and I have been invited to.

Normally I would be shaking in my boots about finding something to wear to said “Black Tie Optional” function. Husband and I haven’t been out to anything I’ve had to dress up for since I was pregs with the boy in 2009. And I have ZERO clothes that fit the season. My few dresses are either super summery, were worn as I gleefully marched friends down the aisle or, well, I have my own wedding dress…

Thankfully, no one will be forced to see me in any of those, as I tagged my trusty friends at Girl Friday in a facebook post today and they promptly responded on their wall with some of the options they have in store! Amazeballs.

Like this little number from fever London…

I have no idea what I’ll wear on my feet – my bad back rules heels out, but pretty pumped to go and get a new frock for the festivities. And lets be honest, the fact that I’m going out to some festivities is, in it’s self pretty exciting. I’ll let you know what I pick

Don’t you love having a go to place?
