Going to the palace......

PLease help. I am a somewhat unfashion concious person who will be accompaning my mother to the palace to get an CBE in three weeks. I am 6ft, sz 14 . I would like some form of jacket/dress or jacket/skirt combo but totally clueless. I would also like a funkyish hat. Anyone got any ideas where to start. I don't!

What's your budget?

This with matching jacket (shown below)


Unusual and a great bargain

Tallergirl my advice would be whatever you choose make sure you wear comfortable footwear. I too was lucky enough to attend a similar function at the palace and not only do you have to walk quite a long way but also there is a fair bit of standing involved !

Enjoy - I'm sure you'll have a fabulous time grin

Just remember it is not acceptable to have cleavage on show.
Nor, apparently, bare shoulders.

I think these dresses are all nice
Phase Eight
phase eight again
and again

I'm not sure what this would be like on, but I love it
