My gene for face masks, shoes, earrings, gossip magazines and dresses seems to have been mostly taken over by the one for Warcraft, football, motor racing and CAT boots.
However, I think it's planning a comeback.
As well as that footstool I just mentioned, I also ordered a dress from Additions.
It's from the Trinny & Susannah collection which very much put me off at first as I really quite dislike that pair. They're just a bit too mean for me and I'll stick with the lovely Gok.
But this here dress has changed my mind a little.
I liked it on the page, so I thought I'd order it and if it's crap I can just send it back.
Oh. My. God.
It's beautiful. Not quite as nice as the sexiest-dress-in-the-world but it comes very close. It's not as dressy as that dress which is the main reason (men everywhere will be puzzled by that sentence).
This dress is lighter and floatier, and also much more forgiving.
But the real reason I think it awoke my girly gene...I tried it on and thought:
"I'm gonna need some new shoes to go with this."
(What's that? You want to SEE the dress... sorry. Here it is)
