I have been panicking for the last week about getting a new outfit. Not just any outfit but an outfit suitable for wearing in the Royal Enclosure at Ascot. Now I have never been to Ascot before never mind being in the Royal Enclosure so there would have been a panic no matter what!

However there is a strict dresscode and I only had yesterday to find something suitable... cue much flapping and wide eyed terror. I must have a hat and they prefer you to wear a dress or skirt rather than trousers. So yesterday I set off towards the Kings Road in an apprehensive mood. But I needm't have!! Dress bought within first twenty minutes (first shop), shoes and hat in the next twenty minutes (each only £35!) and then after a large lunch a little jacket was bought!! How cool was that?!?!?!

I will try and post some photos of it all next weekend. We go on Saturday and it should be good and fingers crossed I will not lose the new dress of my back betting on the gee-gees.

You mean I actually know someone who is going to Ascot!

You must tell all!

And above all have a good time.

I think My Fair Lady would be running through my head the whole time...

Hooray on finding the perfect out fit, hat and shoes. Not that I would have any doubt about your ability. Your shoes are legendary.

Yes, we must see the hat!!! (I like the large lunch, LOL.)

Trish said...

I am sooooooooooo JEALOUS!!!!

Pics by Saturday night then??? ;)

Biddy said...

Michelle - the shoes were just from Principles but they are wedges, ankle strapped and very high!!

Suzanne - You will see the hat once the photos get taken!

Trish - Drunk by Saturday night more likely ;-)

The fact I haven't got my pass yet is slightly worrying though.

Wow, Biddy, that's so exciting! Have a fab time, come back and tell us all, and we want photos. Lots of photos...
