It's a free bar. Transport's laid on. There's food & accommodation booked so now I just need to find an outfit.

According to the mag at the doctors and the fact I'm over 40 I should avoid high heels- they look like I'm trying too hard. And no sequins. I need to show arm. Not cleavage. And black cashmere would look more forgiving than black silk.

A fur stole can apparently work wonders.

Do you know what?
I'm going to wear what I wear every year.
And get so very pissed that my outfit is the least of anyone's concerns.

    Bloody right. I've just been to (and survived) a pre-Christmas lunch (all blokes), and I wore what I always wear and I had a great time! (Not sure about the folk who were trying to prove something though!). Several glasses of a rather fine red wine and who's noticing anyway?...or will have remembered when they sober up?

    That's the way! Get out there and enjoy it all. And if anyone doesn't like what you wear, tell them to give you the cash to buy some new stuff. (And then spend it on more wine...)

    It was a grandfathers' lunch. We totted up 99 grandchildren overall from those present...with the hundredth due next week...but as the organiser said "He or she doesn't bloody count!" Well, rules are rules.
