As promised, here are some better pictures of what I wore to dinner on the River Thames with my family last weekend for my birthday.
I chose a more sophisticated look, with this gorgeous French Connection lace dress in a rich berry colour, my favourite vintage clutch which has made many appearances here already(!) and pretty heels that were a Christmas gift from friends last year, so they have a special memory to them :)
Do you find that you like pieces that were gifts or have a story behind them even more?
