30 December, you have eaten far too much and you missed the gym, again. You need to look hot tomorrow night and you have a) nothing to wear b) pasty pins and c) a bulging tummy. I am your fairy godmother and I plan to transform you from a heap into a heavenly creature with three easy-to-do-at-lunchtime options:
1) Hit the sales, I've looked about and I reckon the best style at the moment is the strapless numbers which hoist in your bust and billow out below, hiding any turkey induced lumps and bumps. They also look great with tights which hides the pasty pins. Try Zara for this style in black or purple check (looks nicer than it sounds), find them on the back wall, left of the changing rooms (HK$549), they look fab with bright coloured tights (from the lanes), sky high heels and big dramatic earrings. If you fancy going for gold Club Monaco have reduced their golden brocade number which could be granny's curtains but is actually rather gorgeous and is in the sale for HK$1429, team with black tights and platform black pumps.
2) Stick with something you have, you know you will probably end up passing out in it anyway. Dress it up with a sparkly or embellished belt round your waist or under your bust line, or pop a brooch in your cleavage. Accessorise like crazy (head to H&M) and add my favourite this season - ridiculously bright tights in pink, purple or electric blue.
3) Treat yourself to a new skirt, puff ball is my current fave, go black or sparkly and simply add a boob tube style top (H&M has some good ones with boned bits to prop you up) or a sequin vest top (Club Monaco have a gorg one, not in sale!). Glamorize (what a great word) with heaps of pearls (from M&S) and gold bangles. Add high high heels and plain black tights.
Panic over, just remember to dab a bit of fake tan on tonight and you'll be ready to go xx
