    got a bit of a dilema and wondered if i could have some advise.
    We are going to mr beans christmas do end this month and i was hoping to have lost a bit more to buy a nice dress (its a ceilidh do) but dont really want to waste my money just yet on something ill probably never wear again ..he bought me a lovely top but it needs trousers and you dont do trousers at these nights ..so do i wear a lovely dress i wore last year? (will they even remember ?) wear new top with trousers or go and buy a frock!
    I know sounds a bit trivial but i would like to make a good impression , he is useless just tells me ai look gorgeous in anything ... and got no sisters to help me !!!
    hugs gilly xxx

    If I were you, and didn't want to buy anything special, then I would wear what I wore last year, especially as you said its lovely. You obviously love it, and feel comfortable in it. Just add different accessories x x x

    You could check on ebay for bargains.. I did for my do on saturday.. I bought quite a few!!! Anyhoo some of them only cost a couple of pounds.. and they are per una, wallis and topshop. I have tried them and although I have not chosen to wear any of them I have put them back on ebay and am making a profit!!

    What colour are you looking for??

    its a ceilidh the majority of people will be off their trollies anyway and whirling about too much to notice that your wearing last years frock, buy some new jewellery or a new shawl and wear the old frock im sure you look fab in it !

    Why not get a long swirly or floaty type skirt to go with the top? My uncle was in a band that used to do ceilidh's all the time and the dancing always looked great with floaty swirly skirts flying round.

    have a great time, I used to love going to them.

    I think you should wear what you wore last year. Nobody will remember and you will look lovely.

    Space Angel , a ceilidh is a scottish sort of dance party, they are great fun, everyone always has the best time.

    Barn dancing/country dancing. You know, set squares and do-si-do your partner, promenade...that kind of thing! A right hoot and such good exercise (although usually combined with booze for me...lol!!)
