Wardrobe Malfunctions & The Importance of Staples
This is a cautionary tale about best laid plans and wardrobe stresses and the important of having some key wardrobe staples.
It was my sister's birthday on Friday and as part of the celebrations we bought tickets to Aladdin the musical - woohoo! I love a good musical and Aladdin was definitely a favourite in my household growing up.
I was planning on wearing a beautiful vintage dress that had beautiful gold detailing (very Aladdin appropriate I must say). I haven't fit into it in a little while but I've been looking after myself recently and was pretty sure it would fit. Anyway, I was taking my time getting ready and doing my hair (no small feat) when we realised we couldn't pre-book parking and we would need to leave a bit earlier to ensure we jagged a park. Right before we were about to leave I threw the dress on and it just wasn't a comfortable fit. EEEK!
What to do?
I must stress the importance of having a few key wardrobe staples for all different occaisions. A little black dress (or 3) is critical in this kind of situation. I threw on a slip and this lace overlay and ran out the door.
So.. it wasn't what I was planning on but a full blow wardrobe crisis averted. You NEED to have some go-to items in your wardrobe just for those moments when you drop toothepaste on your dress just before leaving or you rip a skirt etc etc.
Oh, the musical was fabulous! Go and see it if you still can.
