A Fairy Godmother?

I got this and wore it to wedding last week, absolutely love it and it's so flattering. I don't normally like new look but this has more of a high quality look and feel to it.
They have different ones on the website too.

Not a fairy.....I wish I was dainty enough!

Thanks tor suggestion but jumpsuits don't really do much for my physique 😔

I would go for a dress tbh.

Can you give us any clues about height / size / age / any colours you don't think you can pull off / rough idea of budget ?

Ok, late 30s, about a size 12-14, height 170cm. Not sure on budget tbh....Brown hair, pale.

I love LindyBop and they're always my first port of call for an outfit when an "occasion" comes along in the social calender.

I love their quirky patterns and have many daily wear dresses and skirts as well as "occasion" outfits - I have this cupcake print skirt that never fails to get compliments when I wear it and recently I wore this Alice in Wonderland inspired dress with thick tights and chunky heel boots to a couple of family christenings and everyone loved it!

Also, one of the best things about their dresses and skirts is that most of them have side seam pockets, which really shouldn't make me so excited but I am so sick of skirts and dresses with no pockets to speak of!

What is your usual style? A dress or with a jacket or cardigan are a safe bet.

Melj LOVE this website and particularly love the dress you've linked.....just dunno whether I could pull off something as quirky. I'm normally a plain Jane...

HollowCity Tue 07-Nov-17 19:09:46

Temp, usual style is plain ol Jane....I'd like to go different but not sure....

You should try it! I actually bought the Alice in Wonderland dress because it was a nice print but wasn't too in your face, and you can either dress it up or dress it down. I wore it to one event with heels and clutch bag and another with thick tights, cardigan and boots and it looked good worn both ways.

It can be scary to try new things (and some of their prints are even too bold and in your face for me) but there's no better time to try a slightly quirky outfit than an event that people are going to be looking at you anyway. If someone is going to make a comment about your outfit, might as well give them something to comment on!

Ha ha melj! Love your positivity. I sent a pic of dress to my sister and asked if it'd suit me and she said no....... 😔

Thanks for link chic, some food for thought 💭

Dorothy Perkins is always my go to for dresses. The Billie & Blossom range has some lovely ones. m.dorothyperkins.com/en/dpuk/product/billie-blossom-black-ditsy-print-skater-dress-6974031

Church in December might be cold so something with sleeves and something that can go nicely under a coat? Also needs to be comfortable as you will be carrying baby at some point. Pockets would be a bonus for tissues to wipe up drool/baby sick?

This from Monsoon?

Maybe a knit dress? Phase Eight have loads of dresses which would fit the bill i think?

Melj I now have a dress and a skirt and Lindybop bookmarked. Thank you!

Temporary2002 Wed 08-Nov-17 12:10:49

This is a good colour for December. www.riverisland.com/p/burgundy-rib-double-layer-bodycon-midi-dress-710715 What are the parents wearing?

HollowCity Thu 09-Nov-17 05:51:01

Not sure about the parents temp tbh. I do like the RI dress in burgundy.....

HollowCity Thu 09-Nov-17 05:52:03

Thabks also blue and Nancy.....bit too flowery / summery for me I think....would like long sleeves too if possible I think as hate my arms at the moment....and my legs and tummy!
