Can I wear this?

If this works properly, you'll see the dress, tights and heels I'm hoping to wear tonight but worried following some advice on here that the shoes and tights don't work.

Sorry to keep plaguing everyone with my wardrobe dilemmas!

I think it looks great , are the shoes leopard print. It's difficult to see from the photo smile

Yes and I'm worried it's a bit Minnie Mouse.

Thanks for your reply though!

My hands look very fat in this photo blush. They have done quite a bit of hard work in their day but are not as awful as they look here before you all rush in recommending I wear gloves.

Where are you going? Looks fine, a bit conservative.

cardoon Sat 23-Nov-13 11:40:52

That looks lovely excluding your hands - where are the shoes from please? grin

A 40th birthday party. But if it works, I'll also wear to my Xmas party.

Shoes from m&s. they are footgloves and therefore extremely comfortable. My feet are even worse than my hands so I can't ever wear glamorous shoes.

cardoon Sat 23-Nov-13 11:47:14

Your feet look very slim and toned...... unlike your hands grin

Nothing wrong with your hands at all! Had to go back for a second look and still nothing wrong.

You look lovely smile as does your bedroom envy..

Shoes and tights look fine together.

I wouldn't have said it's a party outfit though.

How about adding a fabulous necklace?

trixymalixy Sat 23-Nov-13 11:52:59

Both your hands and feet look very slim! As do your legs.

Cucumberscarecrow Sat 23-Nov-13 11:54:16

Thank you all lovely ladies! I feel much happier now.

Trust me though, the feet are terrible. Partly genes, part neglect and part long distance running sad.

Cucumberscarecrow Sat 23-Nov-13 11:56:48

Trixy, I agree in principle but I usually wear very casual clothes and never jewellery. I bought a statement necklace to wear but really didn't feel me. It felt like a step too far. Already, it feels weird in the short dress and jazzy shoes.

Naebother Sat 23-Nov-13 11:59:28

Looks fine. What about adding a scarf with bit of sparkle in it?

NearTheWindmill Sat 23-Nov-13 11:59:42

Oh dear - I don't think the shoes go - they don't match. I think you need dark shoes or boots. Apart from the shoes it looks lovely.

Cucumberscarecrow Sat 23-Nov-13 12:04:45

Wouldn't it be very drab with dark shoes?

NearTheWindmill Sat 23-Nov-13 12:06:29

I think it would look more co-ordinated and the dress looks black and I don't think brown and black match. But that's just me and I am very conservative. I think the outfit looks lovely and you have the legs to carry it so who cares really - it's only an opinion.

Cucumberscarecrow Sat 23-Nov-13 12:13:34

Thank you - I am looking for opinions so am grateful!

Everything doesn't have to be 'matcha matcha' - that's so dated..

I always treat leopard print as a neutral, so nice with anything.. Your outfit pieces complement each other fine but it is a bit boring..

HappyGirlNow Sat 23-Nov-13 13:25:03

Matchy matchy even! Blinking autocorrect!

bishboschone Sat 23-Nov-13 13:35:58

It's looks nice , not very party party and seeing as you have a great figure you could wear anything . Def don't want black shoes , the leopard is a great contrast .

cardoon Sat 23-Nov-13 13:41:17

YOU SHOULD ALWAYS WEAR SHORT SKIRTS oops... didn't mean to shout - your legs are indeed fab

Have been to M&S and the only leopards i could find had a conical heel, yours look flat?

Minnie Mouse is my style icon. smile It looks lovely for work or daywear, but not v partyish. And it's not short - it's barely over your knees, so don't worry about that: I'd be inclined to go much shorter tbh.

Sorry - I've killed the thread.
