What I wore: FIL birthday dinner

Last night we went out to nice restaurant to celebrate my Father-in-law's birthday. I love my FIL, he is one of my favourite people in the world. I often think I like him more than I like my husband. Any hoo, I like him enough to go to a steak house and watch the other half of the family gorging on bloody meat. Literally.

More importantly, what did I wear...

I bought this dress from Cue, it was reduced from $279 to $139. It's red with orange spots. I teamed it with nude fishnets, ancient red Zola Mary-Janes, a Mimco carry-all and my favourite Chanel lipstick. I decided to lighten up on my usual jewellery overload and just wore my favourite diamond & pearl earrings from Dubai and half a dozen bracelets my husband has bought from all over the place.


I am joining up for Wordless Wednesday with My Little Drummer Boys
