Remember that episode of the Simpsons, Scenes from the Class Struggle in Springfield? Marge finds a Chanel suit in an outlet store and gets asked to join the country club. Desperate to stay in with the in-crowd, she cuts it up and sews it back again, cuts it up, re-sews it…
That’s kinda how I feel about the black sock and what remains of the pair of tights that have formed the basis of so many of Tess’s frocks. There’s actually so little left of the tights that there’s no way I could replicate Tess’s skirt length tonight. And I’m afraid I don’t have teeny tiny sequins but I do have glitter by the bucketful, so that’s what we’ve done.
Anyhoo, Tess is in black. AGAIN.
But not to worry… already I’m getting some Tesses coming in!
First, let’s head to West Yorkshire, where regular player Rosie has drafted in her almost-10-year-old daughter… well, the finger of her daughter. Love this
Next, to Norwich, where hypnotherapist Steph is playing for the first time. And, to quote some past-it showbusiness figure: “Didn’t she do well!” This is great — we particularly like the top of the frock.
And finally (for now?). here’s a little something from Dress Like Tess regular Amanda from Hertfordshire. We can hardly see the join.
Magic. Anyone else playing? If Tess’s sequins aren’t floating your boat, feel free to style a celeb…
