It occurred to me last night - and weirdly my sister had exactly the same thought because her email about it was waiting for me at work this morning - that for the price of the Roland Mouret dress I tried on four times and almost bought (like the one below but black), I could sponsor two children at Sok Sabay for a year.
Looking at it from that perspective, I can't help feeling a bit ashamed about coveting that dress.
I have been sent a picture of the child we are sponsoring. She is six years old and beautiful. Who needs dresses?
