‘Sex in the city ‘Christmas

It’s a long running Christmas tradition for a big group of us to get together for a fun fancy dress party each year. The dressing up theme was the letter ‘C’. I plumped for Carrie Bradshaw of ‘Sex in the city’ fame. Only snag being that my wig (granted, it was bought in a hurry on the way to the party) was more Dolly Parton than Carrie, so it took guests a while to figure out who I was. I enjoyed the extreme girliness of the outfit; I did not stick rigidly to the look she wears in the opening credits, preferring instead to have a tulle skirt made without tiers so that I could wear it again. Having searched fruitlessly for weeks online I ended up on the ground floor of Maculloch and Wallis merrily flicking through their tulle selection, before popping upstairs for a length of white and silver lurex elastic for the waistband.  The skirt was made at my local dry cleaners for £25. The vest top meant I was borderline hypothermic by the end of the night but at least I remained in character.
