It's going to be very cold I think sad

I'm size 16, 5ft 2, big boobs, huge stomach. Crap legs but they can look passable if the dress hits just below my fat little knees.I can't wear tights, they just look shit on me...

So, I have a lbd. Can I wear black if I add accessories? with nude heels and bare legs?

I'm stuck and I'm running out of time so any help would be great!

Yes you can wear black with colourful accessories. How do tights look shit on you? I buy control tights to help with my gut shape.

What sort of LBD?

MerylStrop Tue 23-Oct-12 19:47:18

I definitely wouldn't do bare legs in this weather - will look weird

MelodyPondering Tue 23-Oct-12 19:55:18

Little black dress is just cheap one from h and m. Bit wrap like and pretty flattering.

I think that tights look shit as I'm so short, I need court type shoes to make legs look longer. With tights, what shows could I wear?

Thank you for replying smile

Shoes could I wear, I meant shoes!

Accesorise with a wrap in a colour - but definitely NOT bare legs, not in winter, not with a little black dress and not at a wedding.

MelodyPondering Tue 23-Oct-12 20:14:48

Oh crap. Ok, thanks. Really don't think I can do tights, will try!

Maxi dress and wrap?


BillyBollyBandy Tue 23-Oct-12 20:18:13

But you can wear skin coloured tights - they don't have to be opaque. Is that what you mean?

You can wear nude heels with that.

I may be underestimating the tight issue, but I'm confused confused

MelodyPondering Tue 23-Oct-12 20:20:31

No I expect I'm not explaining! I was thinking of black tights, never occurred to me to wear skin coloured (revelation!)

Shoes might slip off but worth a try, thanks.

Do you think a maxi would be shit this time of year?

MerylStrop Tue 23-Oct-12 20:23:19

dress sounds good

nude heels and nude tights not bare legs

big flower broochy type thing and wrap


have you got a good coat?

MerylStrop Tue 23-Oct-12 20:23:45

not a maxi, LBD

MelodyPondering Tue 23-Oct-12 20:25:22

Fabulous, thank you. I will try that.

I have a longish purple mac type coat? And a purple clutch?

Good god, my clothes are a bit shit...

I feel your pain, am off to a wedding on Thursday.

I'm having same dilemma as you and after trying everything on in my wardrobe about 55 times this weekend am going for flesh coloured tights with nude heels and picked up some hold your gut in flesh coloured tights at M&S today.

Purple mac and clutch sound good - splash of colour with lbd

lisaro Tue 23-Oct-12 21:04:12

Is it a maxi (Urgh) or a LBD? I'm a bit confused, on phone and tired and names look similar. One say one and one says the other.

MelodyPondering Tue 23-Oct-12 21:07:13

LBD, lisaro and some nude tights.

Thanks Jcee are the tights good from there? Will try and get some tomorrow.

Fingers crossed smile

lisaro Tue 23-Oct-12 21:09:30

Ah good, that'll be nice with a bit of purple. smile

MelodyPondering Tue 23-Oct-12 21:12:23

Brilliant, I knew you'd all help me out! I was driving dh mad with it.

Thanks thanks smile

Have you got some earrings and maybe a scarf that would tie it all together?
Do wear tights if only to keep warm, shivering is not a good or trendy look.
Add layers to help keep warm, waiting for photos can take ages.
Have a lovely time!
