|Hestia in the fashion desert|
My friend The Vet is getting married in October and my good Monsoon frock is getting its third outing.
I got a couple of years ago for a friend's wedding. Since then it's been worn to another wedding (well, entirely different set of folks - they weren't to know that it was bought for another gig) and this lot of reprobates won't know that it's not brand new either. They'll be drunk.
The Mad Woman from Kilmarnock and I are playing Hugely Important Parts - I'm a Witness (makes me sound all Crown Court) and TMWFK is to do a reading.
There is a MAD panic on at the moment because we've just found out that we are to carry some kind of flowery thing. The colours will be burnt orange (not peach!), cream and lots of greenery.
My frock is ok with these colours, but TMWFK needs to get her paws on a different frock. Unfortunately, she looks like death warmed up in anything with an orange cast (apparently does something vile with her freckles - so she says. I've never seen her in anything other than BEIGE myself).
So she's looking for a green dress for the wedding - so that we have some sort of consistent look. Nothing too fancy. Nothing too body con - she's over 50 (but don't tell her I told you).
I've spent the last hour and a half trawling the intertubes looking for potential frocks for her and *falls to knees in parched and desperate manner of Sylvia Simms in Ice Cold In Alex* I need help. Oh God, I need help. My eyes are watering after all this internet trawling and I'm no further forwards......Green is SO not in this AW10, that is for SURE!
Since my only connection with fashion to date has been watching Ben Stiller in Zoolander, can anyone point me in the direction of nice frocks, hopefully green?
Am off to The Glasgow Boys Exhibition tomorrow, so won't be around - but any help offered, v gratefully received.
