Hey, I'm 40! I had a party! I wore sequinned zebra print!
I saw this dress in the Next sale at the beginning of last year - £40, reduced from £90. I tried it on, I loved it, I couldn't justify it - I had no events planned, and it was a little expensive and daring to just hang in my wardrobe!
So this year I was planning my party, and, as you can imagine, one of the top things on my list was to find a frock! I scoured ebay, and purchased a beautiful brocade strapless dress with a tulip bottom, in plain black. It's lovely.
Then, when scouring ebay (as I do on an occasional basis when I've nothing better to do!) I randomly typed in "Dress Next size 10", and up popped *the* zebra dress! 21 minutes to go, no bids, £15 starting price.
It was fate! and 21 minutes later it was mine, for the starting price :D:D
I felt amazing in it all evening - I glittered and sparkled my party away :D
