‘Hi,

I enjoyed visiting One Night Stand. It was a lot of fun trying on different dresses that I would never normally dare to wear.. And I did feel glamorous during the party itself.

It’s also great not to have to find more closet space for a dress which, lovely as it is, I would only ever wear a couple of times in a lifetime!

thanks

And we are lucky to say, we have some of our own attending this prestigious event.

Keep on the lookout for photos from the event.

Tips to you on evening shoes

Tips to you on evening shoes

1. Don’t wear tights or stockings with an open-toed shoe, but remember to get those tootsies polished!

2. Cocktail dresses call out for beautiful shoes – but, for a long dress, the shoes are less important, they should always be pointy with a delicate heel, not some clumpy round toed Mary-Janes.

3. If your shoes are heavily embellished with diamonds, sequines or brocade they may catch on the hem of a long gown, so be warned!

4. You could dress up a court shoe with some shoes clips, or a pair of inexpensive diamante clip earrings, they work just as well. BUT…they are easily lost on the dance floor, hence the advice on getting something whose loss you won’t regret. You could always super-glue them for extra strength.
