On Thursday, I had a day off and did all those things you hardly find time for during a normal working week, such as paying a badly needed visit to the hairdresser's, and attending a fashion show at one of the largest and best established fashion stores in my town.
It was the most beautiful and warmest day so far this year, with temperatures reaching 22 Celsius in the afternoon. The view from my kitchen window was this:
My Mum and I love going to those shows (twice a year); they give you sparkling wine and snacks, and of course watching the show itself is fun. It is rare for me to find anything I want among the outfits presented (I am not quite part of their target group - that will be the case in another 10-20 years), but we usually stay after the show and have a look round on the entire floor. I nearly always find something for myself then, and this time was no exception.
Here is the dress I bought:
And what it looks like on the fashion label's website:
Tonight, I'll be having another one of my beloved cocktail parties. Tomorrow, I'll be off to Ulm, a town a 1 1/2 hour train ride away. I'll stay there all of next week and will only come back next Saturday evening. This is the start of my course at the Academie for Data Protection and Information Security. I won't be able to visit blogland from there, so it's good-bye for a week. Be good!
