Well, if it’s good enough for Princess Kate, it’s good enough for me.  Maybe we can be BFF now (best friends forever, duh)?  Or, you know, she can just carry on being fabulously royal and I can just carry on… being me.

I was pretty chuffed with myself (not like ‘I married the Prince’ chuffed, but quite pleased with myself) when I discovered that this Reiss dress was thin enough to be knotted up into a top.  What’s more, I found that when worn over my new peplum top, it transformed said leather top into something almost palace appropriate.  Ok, ok, work appropriate.

After work, I took my proper lady look off to The Glasgow School Of Art fashion show last night where we really did feel like royalty – hello front row VIP seat, could get used to you my friend.  I’ll show you some of the pics tomorrow!


P.S.  Remember when I got this top?  If you know me a little by now, you would’ve known I wouldn’t wait long to wear it!
