It's for a casual wedding abroad, which is costing me enough to go to. Im a size 14 with biggish boobs. Dress is surprisingly flattering. Im not great in heels its in the hotel we are staying at so no massive biggy. Is it too casual? uk.monsoon.co.uk/view/product/uk_catalog/mon_17,mon_17.1/9505410114

I think it's a great dress. It looks really comfortable but the silk front makes it more dressed up.

I think if you find some lowish heels you'll be fine. Or could you even get away with a flat sandals? How casual is casual?

Duch casual but i dont really know what that means. I know theres no hats/fascinators. Need jewellery and jacket perhaps?

I think it's lovely actually and fine for a casual wedding.

I'd check out New Look for cheap shoes. They do a huge range of styles and you can sort by heel height.

I don't think a necklace would work with that neckline so maybe some earrings?

Not sure of your style but you could go for some statement earrings or something simple like this (sorry for massive link):

A cheap jacket will just look cheap I think. Maybe a wrap the same colour as the flowers.

EachandEveryone Wed 03-Aug-16 21:26:15

Thanks I need to physically get myself together and go shopping while the sales are still on

It's lovely
It is hard dressing for a wedding abroad but having done so recently the dress will be perfect , add sparkly silver sandals and bag
It's really easy to forget what it's like to be at the venue when you are at home

justaweeone Wed 03-Aug-16 21:56:07

Forgot to say
Don't get heels too high as when it's hot your feet will be so painful

EachandEveryone Wed 03-Aug-16 22:11:34

I was thinking silver as well

leccybill Wed 03-Aug-16 22:16:56

Silver earrings and bangle. Mink/mauve wrap. Flay black plain sandals, maybe suede.

It's a gorgeous dress and what a bargain.

Mrsmaudwatts Wed 03-Aug-16 23:06:53

Fab dress, I've just ordered it, err not helpful re accessories! But flowers to you for the link

EachandEveryone Thu 04-Aug-16 23:17:55

Let me know how u get on

Mrsmaudwatts Fri 05-Aug-16 10:09:51

Dunno when I'll wear it, I was thinking with opaques in winter for work.... I just really liked it, no events or anything to wear it to. Hasnt arrived yet, I'll report back as soon as I've tried it on!

Mrsmaudwatts Mon 08-Aug-16 21:58:11

It arrived and I LOVE it!!!

EachandEveryone Tue 09-Aug-16 11:05:13

It's great isn't it? I'm really pleased.

LaConnerie Tue 09-Aug-16 11:45:50

Really like the dress.

I would wear it with highish wedge sandals or block heels - in a pewter or bronze for a bit of bling?

I also wouldn't bother with a jacket - a light floaty pashmina or wrap would look better - you could go with loads of colours for that, lilac, pink, grey, or a metallic one like this

ZansSerif Tue 09-Aug-16 16:35:18

Fab dress! As it's casual I wouldn't have a jacket, but a little cardie that picked out the colour of the flowers. Something like this (though that's gone in a 14 sorry not helpful!).

Maybe some kind of sparkly or pretty flats with pink toenails.

BristolLFR Tue 09-Aug-16 16:39:31

I bought this one, and the maeve style too! It's so flattering smile

I'm wearing it with black wedges and a mauve pashmina. I don't really wear jewellery, but silver earrings and a bracelet/ bangle would look nice

EachandEveryone Wed 10-Aug-16 11:04:29

What colour is mauve? I can't have anything too insipid pastels don't suit me

BristolLFR Wed 10-Aug-16 11:21:45

It's the purpley colour in the flower on the dress

BristolLFR Wed 10-Aug-16 11:24:26

Just checking, it's not for a wedding for people from Weston in Italy at the start of oct is it? That's where I'm planning on wearing mine... Just checking we're not clashing! hmm

EachandEveryone Wed 10-Aug-16 14:39:52

No Amsterdam!

EachandEveryone Mon 22-Aug-16 08:52:38

Any other ideas? I have to buy it all tomorrow.

Pantsalive Mon 22-Aug-16 11:08:59

How about these flatish silver shoes?

Pantsalive Mon 22-Aug-16 11:37:36

This scarf/wrap looks like a great colour and has a bit of sparkle.
