I’m going to the M.A.D.S. awards next Friday as one of my businesses, the New Baby Guides, is sponsoring the pregnancy category and am having a fashion crisis. I’m really looking forward to it as Ms Whittle, Founder of the M.A.D.S is someone who I write about, along with Northern Mum, as being the sort of writer I want to be as funny as, when I am a grown up. The only problem is, that I’ve gained ahem, a bit of weight and can’t get into my usual awards dress. So I’m not just stuck. I’m panicking! Here’s the dresses that I’m choosing between – sorry it’s not a good photo, but had to do a screen shot and this is all I could get, but gives you an idea…
And then, there’s the shoes…. I’ve still not found the right shoes and bag to go with it, so any suggestions would be good. I’ve been advised to look for silver bag and silver shoes but I’m very scared about the latter – about looking a bit Tootsie… so, any suggestions please? I’ve narrowed it down to navy or blue shoes, but am so not sure! HELP!
Disclaimer. This is *not* a sponsored post. I was discussing my weight issues and current fashion crisis with a friend who has a contact at Debenhams, basically saying that I was thinking of not going, because I’m not feeling great about how I look at the moment. Shortly after our conversation, she surprised me with an email telling me to pick a dress, shoes and bag for the awards. Bless her. I owe her one 🙂 I’ve not been asked to write anything or do this, I am genuinely having a fashion crisis. And I have to say, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by what I’ve found!! x
Seeing as a few people have mentioned similar things, I’ve put my first ever link together (I normally get someone else to do all that kind of thing for me so if it’s not the usual format, sorry). It’s just one I found online and can use! So please would you add your blogs about the MADS and fashion related stuff here? Would be nice to see what others are wearing!! x
