If you were in your 40s and going out 'clubbing' what would you wear?

I usually wear skinnies and high heels but am getting bored of it. I have decent legs but hate my norks.

If skinnies, are there any nice tops around? If not skinnies, what?

But of course. smile

<obviously I looked just like the second model. Oh yes>

2nd model MUCH better!

i like it.

Oh remus me old mate.

Ooh, she's scary. The dress is quite nice but not quite right for me, I think - mostly because of the little sleeves. No sleeves or three quarter work better for me.

It looks really different on different models, I found.

looks better here

I wore this clubbing recently: http://www.amazon.co.uk/French-Connection-Lovely-Lorine-Balsamic/dp/B008VE7R4E

If you're a 12 I'd go for a size 14 as it was one the small size (am also 32E and struggled with my boobs in the size 10).

It's a nice length and covers upper arms.

i have a matalan tube affair I am saving for colder weather. With the new boots ( see sep thread)

BetsyBidwell Mon 16-Sep-13 17:56:14

it is

I looked to see if there was a L. nope

Shame about the dress.

Have worn super-clingy skirt to work today and have had many nice comments. smile

I'm going to try some shorts on, if I can find some that are not super-short.

yes, i think you may have a point. I looked a bit parcelled up.
MIND YOU the alternative is remus wearing TOO BIG stuff * hard stare*

I hate anything that doesn't look just thrown on in fact I think that could be the definition of mumsy

Linea weekend dress arrived today
just wrong - I think maybe too small, I got a M which was 12 - 14 but it lacked that " just thrown on" vibe

I like the shorts rather than the dresses. That body Con look is something ds mates all wear in an ironic 80 s way but on older I think a bit formal and mum at a Xmas do. The shorts with loose top v nice.

Which should mean that a 12 will fit and not be too big!

reviews say its tight

I might try it on for evenings in the pub.

LIKE klaxon

This would suit me and I'm short enough to wear it as a dress. Would be too hot though.

yes youd need to be pretty gutsy
