Our friends threw the most fabulous party last night. Complete with a Lebanese kebab van and a silent disco. It was my first silent disco and I thought it was pure genius. No disturbing the neighbours AND (ahem, slightly showing my age here) no straining to hear and speak over loud music. Pop the headphones on when you want to dance (and sing, hopefully in tune, but if not, who cares!) and take them off when you want to chat. Or simply observe for real entertainment!
You know that feeling when you leave a party – your ears are ringing and you feel a little hoarse, well I had none of that last night. Also, rather brilliantly, there were two channels so you could choose the type of music you wanted to listen to. There was a brilliant moment when the ‘old folk’ were bopping to ‘Call me Maybe’ and the 18 year olds (my friend’s son and his friends) were all belting out ‘So Sally can wait’. The head phones light up to green or blue depending on your channel so you are able to see who’s in your camp. Although you could definitely tell just by observing the dance moves 🙂
I wore my new dress, which I am completely in love with. Remember the Ganni leopard print maxi that sold out everywhere ? (photo below) Well, I found an almost identical dress for a quarter of the price.
It’s one of those dresses that I think I will wear for years. Leopard print is such a wardrobe staple and it’s the style of dress that you could dress up or down.
Bad lighting, good dress!
I wore it with last season’s Topshop boots which sold out very quickly (they were a good copy of the Balenciaga knife boots) but I have had a look for similar pairs for you, because they are such an easy style of boot to wear with dresses in the winter.
