A dress and a date night

As a child I watched my Father open doors for my Mother, as a student I spoke a Latin prayer in a dining hall of 200 girls and now as a girlfriend I'm given flowers and taken out on dinner dates.
There's something so special about tradition. If only I could get him to wear a cravat - maybe that's pushing it too far.

Beautiful dress - where's it from?

The dress is from Jigsaw last winter actually -I spied it with a cream trim at first but waited for the sale and they then only had the all black version, I was sad at first but I'm warming to it now - more of a winter number if Im to be honest.

Oh darling you look so elegante and chic.
Love your dress for a dinner out.
And I think you're right there're some male traditions that were so flatering, and it's a pity they don't do anymore.

I think you create traditions of your own too don't you think? The cravat might just come in time.
I love roses, you are very lucky.

It's never too late, use your Aussie 'can-do' attitude and he'll be in cravat before you know it! If not not then give me a call because I love a cravat! I hope your having a blast at Ascot.xxx

The dark dress paired with the light brown shoes is a great effect!

Perhaps it is because you look and act like a lady that you are treated as one. As for the cravat, you could always try the, " Oh darling I would love it if you wore a cummerbund and some spats to dinner, but if I have to, I'll settle for just a cravat." Then he might think he's being very generous and scoring quite a few points.
