Now I understand why some of my design clients insist on putting pockets on their custom-made gowns–life is just so much easier with them! I’ve never felt so free whilst in formal wear until now. Don’t get me wrong. As much as I love getting all dolled up and dressed to the nines, even I have to admit that a gown + stiletto heels + the tiniest minaudière in the world are not the most comfortable things to be wearing. There’s a huge price to pay to look glamorous, both literally and figuratively speaking. But fortunately, thanks to this gown I was able to at least (a) walk long strides (b) not worry about any bulges/tummy showing (c) fit both my phones, powerbank, lipstick and powder in my pockets (d) go hands-free and most importantly, (e) pee successfully! SCORE! Not a very belle-of-the-ball-like thing to say but come on girls, I’m sure you’ve all had struggles with that last one, especially when you’re wearing a gown with layers and layers of tulle or when you’re in the slinkiest gown ever and you’ve got a train to worry about. Oh the many obstacles we women have to face… it’s a hard life.
