Gosh it is half way through November. I always know this as my birthday is in 2 days time. Today is the birthday of Prince Charles and when I was younger because my parent's always listened to Radio 4 they would announce his birthday. I think they did quite a few birthday mentions of well known people. Since I don't listen to Radio 4 in the morning I'm not sure if they still do this. But I always think of today as Prince Charles's birthday.
Given his fondness for navy blue (or was it Diana who loved him in a navy blue suit?) I've selected a dark blue dress. It was quite touching that he wore a navy blue suit for her funeral and I always admired the fact both of them, despite the obvious emotional fallout issues of their ill fated marriage, put the boys first and not just privately but publicly too.
Back to the dress - it is a bit of a bargain for a evening dress at £36 but it is only available in size 8, 10 and 12. It's an Oasis dress on the John Lewis website. If you are size 8, 10 or 12 then it is a great bargain. Blue will stand out but is simple to pair with black tights or shoes and just add a necklace and your look is complete.
