It’s Friday evening, the end of the working week. You want to have a bit of fun. You look longingly at the dress, the one you still haven’t found the right time to wear. There’s the pub, sure, but you know this silky number doesn’t feel quite at home amongst spilled pints and floor chips.
You know deep down that you yearn for something more: that little dress deserves to be seen. It deserves a grand tour of bars and clubs while you sip cocktails against the backdrop of the buzzing city. Well, the 19th of July is just around the corner. No longer are we looking for clothes for an occasion that might happen: now it will. That dress can finally make its debut.
