A Sad Absence of Glitz
Oh how elusive a party outfit is proving to be. I have had several forays into the city in search of something suitable, I have tried on countless items of clothing but so far with no luck.
Now I know this is a very girly thing to talk about but the situation is getting serious. It' my big party and I don't want to wear the same old tired outfit that I always wear. It has to be sexy, it has to be cool (cool in the opposite of hot sense) as I intend to do some embaressing dancing, I would like a skirt or dress as I always wear trousers.
The trouble is that now the sales are coming to an end the shops are ridding themselves of all traces of glitz and it's still too early for them to have their summery colours yet. It's always hard to buy special occasion clothes in March and Febuary, I know this for a fact as I have often tried to get a new outfit for my birthday and a couple of years ago I had terrible trouble trying to buy an outfit for an April wedding.
Clothes shops seem to fill themselves up with dreary trousers and long sleeved tee shirts the minute the new year parties are over. Everything is casual rather than smart and the colours are dull. It's as if the clothes are trying to emulate the weather. Don't we deserve some cheerful clothes in the depths of winter? A bit of colour to brighten up a dull day. Don't shops realise that people still like to go out and party even in winter?
