atm I live in converse but they have seen better days

LaurieFairyCake Sat 16-Jul-11 19:10:29

Why are you wearing such crappy clothes? Because you're waiting to get thinner?

Yep, need to buy yourself something fabulous. Are you apple or hourglass? Good tits or legs?

SnapesOnAPlane Sat 16-Jul-11 19:12:40

They look like grandad slippers, but flimsier
Dorothy Perkins has a nice sale on, some lovely dresses atm

OnlyWantsOne Sat 16-Jul-11 19:16:15

laurie dont know sad

no confidence, havent been shopping - was a size 8 to 10, now a 14 to 16, 5ft 7, massive boob feeding boobs, wobbley belly, just wobble really.

Boobs are huge and good, but cleavage is a no no as my chest looks like a tube map of huge blue veigns.

Sound attractive dont i

OnlyWantsOne Sat 16-Jul-11 19:16:56

look on my profile, see photos of skinny me... i dont look like that now

mittenkitten Sat 16-Jul-11 19:33:37

Right, I'm seeing peaches and cream complexion & lovely hazel eyes. I am just guessing but you look like a Spring to me. So that dress would be too dark for you. How about something like$ja=tsid:19886|prd:79682 this?

groak Sat 16-Jul-11 19:33:44

Only wants one, I'm a size 16, was just a bit smaller before dc, and I've bought the green dress from Monsoon. Go for it, it's really flattering, it's just a nice low neckline with out your post baby boobs showing too much and looking like a milkmaid! and at the sale price it's a good dress to buy and feel good in while you start thta pre-baby plan!! grin

LaurieFairyCake Sat 16-Jul-11 19:33:55

Cleavage is a yes, yes if you treat it like a blotchy face - use your foundation or bronzer on the cleavage. However not too much cleavage. How about a nice v neck dress with a camisole underneath to cover it a little?

Are you a high heel wearer or do you prefer pumps or wedges?

There are some good shoes and dresses on hobbs in the sale. There's a dress called Albion - can't link at the moment as on the phone. And there's some very pretty lower heeled shoes on there too.

jumpinghoops Sat 16-Jul-11 19:34:36

Wow! You are gorgeous!

mittenkitten Sat 16-Jul-11 19:37:14

Or this (also Dotty P)?

LaurieFairyCake Sat 16-Jul-11 19:37:39

Ah cross posted. The Albion dress is too dark for you ( and probably too officey and old)

OnlyWantsOne Sat 16-Jul-11 19:45:10

Thank you Hoops but I don't feel it

I like the green dress but wouldn't know what to wear it with.

I've got 4 year old DD who is bridesmaid. I will be running around all day probably. And dd2 is 7 months

God in fed up of looking shit

LaurieFairyCake Sat 16-Jul-11 20:00:21

really lovely dress, forgiving wrap style

LaurieFairyCake Sat 16-Jul-11 20:02:55

another jersey dress, not wrap but with a v and sleeves if you don't like your arms - £65 in sale Think the raspberry colour is more your colour

mittenkitten Sat 16-Jul-11 20:03:12

That's really pretty Laurie!

Only, you ARE gorgeous.

OnlyWantsOne Sat 16-Jul-11 20:04:40

wrap dresses, esp jersey ones just seem to drape really unflatteringly.

im so tempted not to go

LaurieFairyCake Sat 16-Jul-11 20:06:45

Then the second one then if you're not keen on wraps.

To be honest I think the problem is your self-esteem my dear as I'm an 18 and 7 inches shorter than you grin - I have last years version of the second dress and wear it a lot, it's very slimming.

Would some beauty treatments and I nice hair cut and colour make you feel better about yourself?
