Get ready to party
That's not the latest Maison Martin Margiela tromple l'oeil top, it's a model wearing Flatter Me armwear from M&S. And a nude bra. This is a similar idea to Mary Portas' Armery - wonder what the Queen of Shops has got to say about that? - but looks a bit more substantial. A crop top style with a front bra fastening that's designed to be layered under a sleeveless party frock, to cover and shape wobbly arms.
Yep. That's enough chic for one week. let's get back to basics. I rarely have occasion to wear a cocktail frock, let alone a red carpet dress - and anyway, I prefer to let it all hang out. That's Not My Age Mansions is a Spanx-free zone. So, it's over to you. Is armwear a clever way to approach the festive season, and give extra mileage to a much-loved sleeveless style? Or is it better to avoid the Desperately Seeking Susan vibe and spend more on a dress with sleeves?
Your thoughts please.
