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…


And this little number from Darling UK…


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?
