I have been asked out on a date tomorrow dinner time. He is picking me up at 1ish and we are going for something to eat.

Now I have no idea what to wear! What would you wear?

I'm a jeans and high tops kind of girl and if you saw me christening outfit thread you know I need help grin

Sp's date must have gone well grin

SPsFanjoHasABlingingVajazzle Sun 10-Feb-13 12:05:36

I am ready. Only took 20 mins.

Off for a fag to calm nerves.

Thank you all!

I will update later

Good luck SP!
And really, any shoes will be fine- pumps/hightops whatever, the rest of the outfit should dress up/down whichever pair you choose IYSWIM.
Have a great time smile

Might get my leather cat suit on and go bare foot grin

I think I need to invest in some in-between shoes grin

FairyJen Sun 10-Feb-13 08:09:24

Just a thought sp but I you wear your bondage gear he won't notice your shoes....

Heels will be fine with jeans and nice top don't cancel babe!

AmberNectarine Sun 10-Feb-13 07:17:24

Argh, sausage fingers..

High tops - I believe in wearing the clothes that really represent you on a date. If he doesn't like it, he isn't worth it anyway!

AmberNectarine Sun 10-Feb-13 07:16:16

Don't cancel! I Hink you should wear high t

SPsFanjoHasABlingingVajazzle Sat 09-Feb-13 22:32:24

I've been in bath and come out all red and blotchy after using Nivea. I will have to put outfit on tonight and just put all my shoes on and stick to the best ones

So close to just cancelling

Sorry tomorrow afternoon showing i clearly have had enough wine

DancingInTheMoonlight Sat 09-Feb-13 22:13:57

I thought the date was this afternoon?

DancingInTheMoonlight Sat 09-Feb-13 22:13:06

Going out heels if you can walk in them sober, pumps if not :-)

SPsFanjoHasABlingingVajazzle Sat 09-Feb-13 21:46:26

I'm freaking the fuck out! Help needed! Shoes I wanted to wear tomorrow I have left at a mates and its not possible to get them. All i have left are high tops, pumps and going out heels sad

SPsFanjoHasABlingingVajazzle Sat 09-Feb-13 17:52:19

I have skinnies, heeled boots and a jumper!

Thank you all apart from tantrums and fairy grin

WhichIsBest Sat 09-Feb-13 17:49:39

I would say skinnies, boots with smallish heels over the top, and maybe a long tight jumper rather than t shirt and cardigan, because a cardigan could hide your hourglass-ness.
But nobody has ever accused me of being fashionable. Maybe just go with the dominatrix idea.

SPsFanjoHasABlingingVajazzle Sat 09-Feb-13 17:05:13

It might end up on the worst dates thread yet grin

Is it wrong to ask for a background check before the date? grin

ScentedNappyHag Sat 09-Feb-13 13:16:30

For an afternoon date, I'd go with skinnies, a printed Tshirt, cardigan and some kind of ballet pump. So casual, but not scruffy smile
Good luck! There'd best be a thread to dissect the date afterwards wink

SPsFanjoHasABlingingVajazzle Sat 09-Feb-13 12:30:48

Well Fairy and Tantrums thank you for your very helpful comments. I will wear both grin

TantrumsAndBalloons Sat 09-Feb-13 12:27:41

Dominatrix outfit sp

Might as well start as you mean to go on grin

FairyJen Sat 09-Feb-13 11:57:36

< innocent >


SPsFanjoHasABlingingVajazzle Sat 09-Feb-13 11:56:54

Fairy No need to take the piss grin

SPsFanjoHasABlingingVajazzle Sat 09-Feb-13 11:54:49

Don't know where I'm going and I'm a hourglass Id say

FairyJen Sat 09-Feb-13 11:53:16

I rather liked your purple dress...

DancingInTheMoonlight Sat 09-Feb-13 11:50:44

Plus its freezing out so that gives an excuse for warmer clothes!

WhichIsBest Sat 09-Feb-13 11:48:17

Where are you going to eat?

What shape are you?

SPsFanjoIsAsComfyAsAOnesie Sat 09-Feb-13 11:15:43

How I feel comfortable is jeans and high tops. Ok for hes taking me to McDonalds though grin
