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.

Brick and Mortar

‘Hi Joanna

This email is well overdue, but I wanted to thank you for your help with a dress for the charity ball I attended in November. The dress attracted so many compliments, both from friends and from people I didn’t know – on one occasion a young man came up to me and said his girlfriend wanted to tell me what a stunning dress I had on, but wasn’t able to as she had a bad case of hiccups, so she had sent him to tell me lol! Many people said it was the best dress at the ball. I really enjoyed wearing the dress, and I told everyone who commented where I had got it from, so I hope I have generated some new business for you. I will definitely be back for next year’s ball gown.

Have a lovely weekend.

Kind regards

Margaret’
