Day 55: All The Way With LBD!

This is the start of another themed week. Although I may not last that long. Or, rather, last without repeating. The Little Black Dress is supposed to be that staple of the wardrobe that can be simple and classic enough to last a number of seasons and versatile enough to be dressed up, down or sideways for a plethora of different looks and occasions. So theoretically I should only need one. Turns out, in my usual excessive way, I have a few. There are possibly not seven of them. And the following words may not apply to them: 'little', 'simple', 'classic' or 'versatile'. But they are black. Let me see what I can do with them this week. If you have a favourite picture of yourself in your little black dress, leave a link in the comments: I'd love to see it.

My nephews' cubby house provided today's backdrop. Those are them below. Rambunctious little rascals! BBQ dinner at D—— and P——'s. (Isn't it odd that all my friends' initials rhyme with 'ee'.)(Except for the one's that don't.) It was divine: boerewors cooked spiralling, satay Thai chicken, crusty bread and butter, potato and rocket salad, and a thai greens and tomato salad with mint and coriander and a delicious Thai dressing. A couple of cool fruity ciders for me, beers otherwise all around as we sat in the buzzing dusk and listened to the neighbours piano practise on one side and yappy dog on the other. Coffee, and walnut and pecan pie with thickened cream, during Elementary to end the evening. Yum. Great night.

  1. I am now completely craving an icy cold cider, and the exact meal you've just enjoyed. How is that?

    Great LBD...and I love your sandals.
