  1. Aaargh!! The day before? I think I’d have just run down to the nearest posh dress shop. Well done you. It looks as if the heat had calmed down a bit for Ladies Day – had it or were you sweltering?

  7. WOW!! And that final comparison with a real woman and a model just made my morning! The design looks every bit as fabulous on you as it does on her. I sure hope you find another excuse to wear it again – surely once is not enough!

    • Thank so much Pauline! It’s always difficult to directly compare oneself with a ‘perfect’ woman, but important to show how it differs on a real figure, I think.


  8. You’ve done a terrific job, even under pressure. Congratulations for pulling it off. I really like the detached peplum and those neat and tidy pleats. I hope you had a terrific time.

    • No, it’s on again next year! I was picked for TV audition for the very first series and turned it down. I was hoping it would be a documentary-type series – I loathe anything with a judge on it, so said no thanks:)

      • Yay! to it being on again, I know they were thinking of binning it – although heaven knows why. I hear what you’re saying about the judge thing, but they always seem to being having such a good time too. (If a little fraught)

  12. You pulled it off! Your dress is just brilliant! You and hubby look so happy. The boys are getting so big. Tell them to stop growing! I am feeling a bit better.. not much but I am trying hard. I love seeing your smiling face. 😀


  13. It is absolutely stunning and you and hubby both were the perfect picture. 🙂 Loved it. Thanks for sharing the day with us all here.
