As always, my toughest sartorial decision was whether to wear a bow tie or a neck tie. Asking around, the majority leaned towards the former, but I eventually decided on my vintage paisley tie. I am also wearing this evening a new Daniel Wellington watch, which I collected today, but more on that at a later date.
However, in all fairness, the outfit matters little this evening. I am really pleased to have been shortlisted for "best established fashion blogger", and whatever the result, I will be returning home with confidence. May the best blogger win.
