At least I think it is, and I'm happy to say that today is not one of those days, although I haven't flashed the plastic yet.
I think this little black number by Vivienne Westwood Anglomania fits the bill for right now - I'm not sure that I really go for the 'hoik it up and it becomes a mini' angle, but for styling, ruching and draping it's just a perfect LBD.
'Put it on your Christmas List' did I hear you say? Noooooooo! I'm sure it's not going to hanging around for that long, and in any case, I want to wear it before Christmas, to all those parties I'm going to be going to, silly.
From the shoe point of view, and although I do love the red Brian Atwood ones they've styled it with, I'd rather have these - wouldn't you? Forget the price, they're so very 'now and next season'.
Yes I know, this is the second time I've written about Vivienne Westwood in a week - I'm loving her collection this autumn, dontcha know?
