Dh and i have been invited to a fancy dress party with a MARITIME theme. What do I wear??? Not mermaid, I am feeling too fat. But something kinda sexy-ish without showing too much (maybe cleveage) Some ideas on the invite are Nelson, Jaws, Nemo, Ellen McArthur (don't want to wear yellow!!)

PLEASE MUMSNETTERS DO YOUR STUFF

Well, there seems to be a lot of nautical fashion around at the moment like white wide legged trousers and blue+white striped tops.

did anyone else read the theme as "Marmite" ?

For example, here but hopefully not so pricey.
Maybe with a jaunty little hat?

marmite would be a bit restrictive a theme - you could only go as a jar or a twiglett

Well, how about Emma Lady Hamilton in a nice Empire-line frock with ostrich plumes in your hair and long gloves?
