I am self employed and have an interview for a great contract. Can anyone help with ideas?

I am curvy and have an enormous bosom and don't really like suits. Although I think they look the business, they just don't suit my figure.

What do you think of this grey P8 dress?

I luffs it. I could dress it up with heels or down with boots.

Please and thank you blush

I like it, but I prefer this.

Eggrules Thu 15-Nov-12 19:23:01

I love that too - my shoes and bag are the red colour featured in 'complete the look'.

P8 dress is £63.20, Hobbs is £143.20. I didn't mention budget which is about £75. I also need something that I will wear a lot. I largely work from home but am trying to build a really smart office capsule.

I don't like 3/4 sleeves. It is an mad quirk 'cos I like them on other people. Cap, elbow or full length - slightly overlong would be my fave.

Ooooh, if you like overlong, then I'm afraid you need a Vivienne Westwood dress. They are amazing on curvy figures.

Will have a look.

I am on a diet / lifestyle change (lost 4 llbs last week). VW is going to be my reward when I reach my target.

I am hoping to loose boobage, I know they will still be large though.

Ffs the wine is only just unscrewed. I meant lose. My breasts won't be loose, I have a boring job. Fecking Swype.

Fair enough. I won't show you this reduced red one, then wink

I think the phase eight one is good.

Eggrules Thu 15-Nov-12 20:35:50

I love that. Do you know what the sizing is like? I'm now trying to accessorize a dresses I don't even have. I am blonde.

tethersend Thu 15-Nov-12 22:08:36

I would say an L is a 14- I am a 16 and an XL fits me well.

Eggrules Thu 15-Nov-12 23:25:55

Would you wear red dress? I am tempted to buy as an incentive. Too weird?

tethersend Fri 16-Nov-12 16:02:02

I wouldn't wear red, but that's only because I have the type of ginger hair which looks rubbish with red. Nothing wrong with a red dress.

What sort of colouring are you?

Eggrules Fri 16-Nov-12 18:07:02

Blonde, freckles and go red easily.

I think the red dress is one to save for a fab night out.

Thanks for your help thanks
