Am off to a very swanky hen night in London next saturday. The chief hen has 'connections' and has got us a table at a new and trendy members only club night at a place in Mayfair, she's only just revealed the location. I am more of a pub/occasional nice bar kind of girl so am stumped as to what to wear! Also, the bride and many of the hens have high flying well paid jobs and wear designer clothes some of them are also a tiny bit intimidating and I am a bit scared whereas I am a public sector worker and get most of my clothes in H and M and charity shops. So, I'd like to look fairly on trend and not like a fashion outcast. The dress code is little black dress and heels.
Thankfully I've just had a significant birthday (I'm 30) and got some money for nice clothes so my budget for the dress and heels is £250-£300. My stats are size 12 (with a squishy saggy post baby belly but I can control it with Spanx!), 34F boobs, normal sized bum, short legs (28" inside leg) and 5'2" tall.
I don't really read fashion mags anymore so don't know what is cool. I do know that the heels need to be block platforms or wedges as there will be dancing and I won't be able to manage that all night in a stiletto heel. I would quite like non-black heels, something a bit more interesting would be great.
Please can you help me amazing S&B ladies! Thank you!
Grr can't link off this stupid phone. I know you said not stilettos but bear with me M&S have patent shoes in, £19.50 come in half sizes. All different colours (nude, caramel, red, black) and they are so so comfortable and properly padded inside If you google patent court shoe they should come up
There are a few bags in the KG sale which are nice - it depends how big you need but they had a few lovely sequined ones.
Or you could go the whole hog and hire something seriously posh!
Dune have a sale on too - they don't seem to do half sizes however if you haven't tried there before I would consider trying a 4 as I find their shoes absolutely massive and quite often go down a size.
