Fast approaching 40 and my date outfit is this ........ AIBU to think I can still get away with this type of thing?

I'm in my 40s and would love to wear that...if I had the figure to pull it off! Go for it smile

Not sure what you hope to get away with. Is the date some kind of bank heist? Illegally importing snakeskin shoes made from endangered species of amazonian snake?

What's being under 40 got to do with anything?

Really, you need to ditch the age-related stereotypes (which are invariably both wrong and useless) And instead check in your mirror and wear things that make you feel terrific.

If by 'get away with it' you mean shoplifting, then don't do it!

If you're just not sure whether to buy it, then trying it on in front of a mirror is probably more use than using a calendar

If you like it and it makes you feel good- wear it!
Personally, my ghostly-white, saggy 3-babies-worth belly would be chomping at the bit trying to escape through the cutout section with every move I made. Wish I could wear a dress like that.....**.*daydreams back to the days when I could*

Oh lol ! Sorry wasn't expecting such a literal response. Yes I feel great in it, but I generally think I dress a touch on the young side so wasn't sure !!! Love the keyhole detail but was worried it cheapened it !

I'm amazed that the website selling £200 shoes also offers a 10% student discount!! Can't imagine a student spending £180 on shoes when they could go to Primark and spend £170 on booze!grin

When I was a student I lived with 2 girls who ate and drank minimally so they could 'afford' their designer gear. hmmgrin

I would definitely wear that, had I the figure for it.

A perfectly reasonable post about a dress and you still get dickish comments.

The dress is lovely OP, I'm 45 and I would wear it

Are they real snake skin??

Our Primark doesn't sell booze

You go to Primark for the shoes!! Not the booze!!
