Men think that they’ve got problems? Let me tell you a few things – without ranting against men – the tie which goes with that shirt and jacket, easy, just look in the mirror and see if they clash or not. Do the colors work with one another? Good, you’re done. Is it a formal or a casual occasion? Easy. You’re done. Black or white tie dinner or bistro on the corner? Easy.
There are reasons why you need to wait for us – and believe me, women waiting for their women lovers are just as bad at times! – we have a little bit more to consider. Such as?
Such as whether we’re going to provide the right impression for everyone else when it is probably your dinner, your occasion we’re escorting you to. Bistro on the corner? Not a great problem, when it’s just for us. Dinner in a smart restaurant with the Boss? First Night at the opera? We need a little bit of time.
And then there’s this to consider: How long will I need to get into this most beautiful creation?
Let’s not beat around the bush here, it’s going to take quite a bit of time and preparation. The same with many other wonderful dresses which have been photographed by Dan Howell on his superb website, and which had me watering at the mouth so much I needed a bib and a lot of restraint not to dive straight into my savings! My apartment is too small for all the dresses I would buy just from his photography – not to mention the amount of ready cash I have.
They are special occasion dresses, not for the bistro on the corner, but for that special night for two, for that going out and being seen occasion. For that really special night, and I mean really special, when you start getting ready several hours before everyone else gets up.
And there is another thing which we women need to consider: what else to wear? I don’t mean make-up or jewelry, that’s a task for itself; finding the right accessories to compliment and make a complete picture. There are the bits one doesn’t get to see, the bits which come after the special night just for two. And if you think that just choosing a single dress from this amazing collection is a problem, you’ve only got half the story!
This creation is an off-the-shoulder one, which means that my first thought wouldn’t work.
I mean, if you’re going to do it, why not go the whole nine yards?
And then I thought to myself, it’s a dress for a special night with that one person you wish to be seen with. I know that my lover, if I wore this creation, would let her golden red hair fall loose across a black suit or even tails – which can look so hot on a woman. An evening for two, no matter where or how many other people are going to be there so, something simple. After all, when we get home again all we’re going to want to do is relax with one another, perhaps drink a glass of wine, and then the evening can really begin. And that means:
And then the night would be perfect, as far as clothes are concerned. What happens after that, well, that’s a story still evolving in my mind.
Love & Kisses, Viki.
