Here Come The Girls

Saturday, 15 May 2010

It was my best friend's hen night last night. Well, I say night, but we actually started off at 3.30pm and I didn't get home till after 4am. We all had a truly fab time though - we won money at the races, watched Alexandra Burke sing live after the last race, then went for a delish Thai meal and out for lots and lots of dancing. There were loads of us out - Shell has an enormous family so there were cousins and aunties everywhere you turned.

Sorry about the quality of the pics - the camera on my phone is not great and space in the bag didn't allow for a proper camera to come out with me!

Shell, the lovely bride to be. Her dress was stunning - shame it hasn't photographed so well.

Ruth, rocking a gorgeous maxi dress. She's only half an inch taller than I am so if she can do it, so can I! I will track one down, I will...

Claire, the 4th member of our little gang, lives up in Newcastle and was stuck at work supervising her A Level students do their exam practicals, so she couldn't make it. Boooo to the stupid exam timetable, we missed her!

Oh and me? I went for the following:

Dress - Purple @ DP
Leggings - M&S
Jacket, necklace (which I've worked out is actually meant to be a headband!) & corsage - DP
Ring - New Look
Wedges - Dolcis
Bag - um, George I think, It's ancient.

The corsage started off as a hair clip but it kept sliding off and irritating me so it got shoved on the jacket instead. It clashes a wee bit with the print of the dress but what the hell. I don't object to clashing florals.

A hastily snapped one before I left the house might be a little more in focus. It shows off the footwear to better effect anyway. I LOVE these wedges. I've had them for years and they're ridiculously comfy. I was on my feet yesterday for 13 hours, several of which were spent dancing, and they didn't hurt at all!

Despite the fact that I look a bit bizarre in it, I must just finish up with this picture. Squeeee! For those of you who don't follow racing, it's Tony McCoy. Bit of a hero of mine, 15 times Champion Jockey and winner of just about every big race going, including the Grand National this year. Ruth and I were all "You ask him if we can have a photo" "No, you" "No, you!" How old are we?! We got brave eventually and he was ever so nice.
