Its not every day that I am invited to a new year’s eve dinner at the top-notch Rockpool restaurant at Crown Perth! Going to such a classy venue, I naturally took the effort to dress my best. I went to the hair-dressers about a week before, trimming the edges so now they are off my shoulders (and in doing so feeling much more comfortable in the Perth summer heat when I wear my hair down). On the weekend I spent an entire afternoon rummaging thru my wardrobe, before deciding on this gorgeous Cue dress: made with imported satin fabric, it has a lovely summery floral pattern on a white background. Yesterday I rushed into the beautician at lunchtime to have my legs waxed. Today at lunchtime I rushed off again to get my nails painted. I got off work slightly earlier this afternoon, rushed home, got out of my work clothes, showered, blew my hair dry, put on my make-up, got dressed again – and its suddenly 6.30pm!! I am always running late despite all the rushing!

When I bought the Cue satin floral racer neck dress a few months ago I wasn’t sure initially about the racer neck. I like the fabric and colours but unsure about the racer neck: racer neck tops and dresses tend to broaden my shoulders, they also require strapless bras and strapless bras don’t usually flatter me. But I loved the dress so much I overlooked the negatives and bought it. When I started wearing it, I have no regrets since. Cue dresses are somehow cut in such a way they are always flattering whenever I wear one. I love Cue dresses!
P.S. this is how the dress looked on a model, and on Sonia Kruger as she wore it for the morning show:
