We are going to an 80th birthday party on Sunday afternoon.

I am pretty clueless about style and beauty and there are only males in the house who have given me three different opinions on the outfits!!

Which one should I wear?

Stripey or flowery? Boots or pumps?

Flowery and pumps smile

I prefer stripey with pumps but I think you are hiding your figure too much

EeyoresGloomyPlace Fri 08-Mar-13 22:03:53

Flowery with pumps looks nicest for a birthday bash IMO.

Have a nice time whatever you decide on smile

Hi maw - I like the stripey jumper with the boots, but would it be appropriate for the party? How formal is it?

Flowery with pumps. If your name is in any way a clue and you are in Scotland, your feet may be cold though! But I think that is the outfit which goes together best.

Flowery with pumps for the afternoon. Boots look nice but more suitable for shopping than a party.

The striped one doesn't co-ordinate with black, too contrasting.

Flowery & pumps

Another vote for flowery and pumps!

like the dress with the pumps, and you have great legs (what i can see of them!), do you have any tights, because I'd be showing them off a bit.

I like flowery with pumps - but it's going to be freezing on Sunday which means I'd be wearing boots!

mawbroon Fri 08-Mar-13 22:06:35

Oh wow! That was quick, thanks for the replies. Poppy it's not terribly formal, mostly just DHs family I think.

NervyWervy Fri 08-Mar-13 22:06:36

Flowery and pumps for me too. Enjoy!

Cotapaxi Fri 08-Mar-13 22:07:51

Flowery with pumps, you have a lovely figure! It may be cold though so I would check if the venue is hot or not grin!

mawbroon Fri 08-Mar-13 22:09:22

It will be freezing, yes we are in Scotland! But it's just a quick run from the car to the venue. I have a simmit which I will wear underneath to keep me warm grin

Have you recently lost weight? You seem to be dressing for a much larger person than you are! You need something more fitted imo. A teadress with no leggings underneath would look lovely with your figure. Show it off!

peachypips Fri 08-Mar-13 22:12:01

Yes, flowery and pumps. I agree that you could wear more fitted clothes- you are slim. Don't hide!!!!! I'm envious!

QuickLookBusy Fri 08-Mar-13 22:13:36

I agree, you are covering up too much.

I actually prefer the flowery with boots, but the pumps do look nice as wellsmile

rootypig Fri 08-Mar-13 22:14:23

both lovely, but defo pumps not boots. have a great time!

Flowery and pumps

mawbroon Fri 08-Mar-13 22:16:15

blushblush at the compliments. Yes, I have lost a lot of weight (through being ill unfortunately). The flowery one is actually kind of fitted at the waist, it just doesn't really look it in the pictures.

And it's way better than the other dress that didn't make the cut which made me look like a sack o' tatties grin

mawbroon Fri 08-Mar-13 22:17:02

So, is the stripey one just wrong then? Will I take it back to the shop for a refund or does it have potential?

QuickLookBusy Fri 08-Mar-13 22:19:18

Hope you are on the mend now mawbroon.

I think you should take the stripy one back and buy something a bit shorter and more fitted. If you've got it flaunt it!
