These two are from my wardrobe. The blue one is a bit big so I've popped a belt on it. The long sleeved one is DH's preference but I think it's a bit daytime.
Does anyone have an opinion on which one I should go for? And some suggestions on how to dress it up. I'm so much more comfortable in jeans than at dressy-up occasions and am going to be around some very naturally stylish types.
To be fair, I do like some sequinned stuff, but the vast majority of things with sequins on available on the high street look like trashy middle-aged-Christmas-party fodder, and are pretty far from fabulous IMO.
The dress I linked to would look gorgeous on a size 6/8 figure. Mind you, so would most things
Ok, will look for something more glam. But not with bloody sequins on
I was admiring this sequin number the other day. I like it because it has a beautiful glamourous texture but is otherwise very plain and simple, you could wear with dark tights and many kinds of shoes/boots would work.
Obviously not v helpful budget-wise but it might give you some ideas.
I've been invited to a party tomorrow evening with the dress code "something fabulous" which is pretty much meaningless to me and am in a bit of a panic about it. It's in a nice restaurant (private hire) and will be drinks/dinner/dancing but I think black-tie formal will be overkill. Nothing in my wardrobe either fits or is appropriate (I have lost a fair bit of weight recently) so I need something new.
I don't have a budget to speak of but would prefer it if I could buy something under £100 (though would go higher for something fab), I'd pay extra for amazing shoes but do have a cupboard full of them so may be able to recycle on that but I either need to be able to pick it up in London or get overnight delivery.
I'm a size 8 (sometimes 6) hourglass, need to wear a bra at all times though will do a strapless one and have short brown hair and average skintone, though have a bit of a tan at the moment, with strapmarks from my bikini on my back so a strapless frock is probably a bad idea.
Can anyone help me as I am clueless (and terminally unstylish)?
