What's that saying?

I never thought I'd have this problem, "What to wear to Michelin star restaurants?" :P Ok, I know it sounds really arrogant, however hear me out.

Having been to Tetsuya's, Becasse, Yoshii, *insert top Sydnery restaurant here*, I never questioned myself on what I had to wear for the occasion. My theory was always, I have the cash to splash and it shouldn't matter what I wore. My money is good regardless of my outfit. Here in Rondontown, it's a different story. What you wear has to match the quality of your food and expected service. Michelin stars mean snotty looks if you're not dressed up for the occasion.

I get stressed out about what to wear. Majorly. Because European bodies are a lot longer and more well endowed than what I've been blessed with, dresses just don't fit me properly here. I hate to admit it, but I have purchased one Ted Baker top for special Michelin star dining experiences. Ie: I've only worn this top to Michelin restaurants. It fits and it's frilly. Me, in frills *cringe*

This week, I am going to 3 Michelin starred restaurants. All up, 4 stars in total. Today, under pressure to find a dress at the 23rd hour, I've ended up with one that's bright yellow.

It either makes me look like a cute young canary...

...Or Big Bird's hideous date:


The longer I stared into the mirror before dinner tonight, the more I was convinced it was Big Bird's lucky day.

Bright yellow? What was I thinking? Not only that, but I'm also at that awkward inbetween size. So I had to choose between:
:: Size 8 - Bit squeezy on the side, there's some armpit vag action.
:: Size 10 - Not enough b00bies. If I lift my fork and spoon, the dress falls down.
*sigh* Wtf, can't they have a size 9? :P

Armpit vag it is.

What was I thinking? I think I bought this dress more to spite the girlies who have been clamouring for my cleavage over dinner. I think I've outdone myself and managed to spite me as well *lol* Hrm, at least the dress has pockets (and err, a big bow on the side).


"You can take the girl out of Blacktown, but you can't take the Blacktown out of the girl". Or something like that ;)

Update: Miss K has assured me the dress looks decent. After a bellini. And 3 glasses of wine. Highly dubious review *grin*

Should've bought that black dress babe. It's also short-sighted thinking to only buy hot dresses for hot dates. Hellloooooo every day, every coffee shop, every turn of street corner brings the possibility of a hot guy and hot date. Push those puppies out in anticipation!

Alternatively, just come to NYC.

Yes Beckster, always possibility of bumping into hot guy in coffee shop - but when was the last time the romcom scenario of a hot guy asking me out on a date actually happened? ;)
