Night out to local pub as above not been out in 8 years and have NO going out clothes, bags, accessories etc and i live in jeans, flats and jumpers

Im 28, 5'6 size 10-12. I was thinking skinnies, nice top and mabe a blazer? but what ones? what kind of bag is night out worthy? and what kind of top? would welcome links if anyone fancies

Budget is very low so cheap as possible, thank you fellow style and beauty ladies

If you're going to a local pub then I should imagine anything so you may not need to buy a whole new outfit unless you want to.

I don't wear skinnies myself but a lot of people seem to rate primark. For a top and blazer you could try primark or h&m or Dorothy Perkins. A clutch is a good going out bag.

Can't do any links at mo as about to put ds in bed!

Sorry, I ended up going to bed too grin.

I'm a big fan of a blouse like this or this

DP have up to 30% off on blazers at the moment jackets

thank you, seen a nice black blazer at dorothy perkins that i'll try. Also seen cheap one at H&M any ideas what they are like sizing wise? their guide puts me at a 10 but with a 12 chest. I usually order anything between an 8-12 at dorothy perkins.

Also shoes i was looking at these www.newlook.com/shop/shoe-gallery/view-all-shoes/black-suedette-court-shoes-_273416901?icSort=Price+(Low+to+High)

is this the sort of thing i should wear? not sure on height though it doesnt state and i dont do heels generally

QueenCadbury Thu 28-Mar-13 11:32:27

I've got these which are a nice small height so those ones you linked will be fairly high but not cripplingly high by the looks of it.

H&m sizing is all over the place. I'm a size 8-10 and generally take a small or a 10 in there. DP I find comes up big and I usually have to size down.

I've just got this from Oasis and wore it for the first time last night - and got complimented a few times!

I'm also a 10-12 with boobs and tried the S and the M but kept the S.

If that's not your style, Oasis have loads of other lovely tops in the sale!

thanks queen i will order those ones instead heel looks more manageable, i prefer the dps blazer but h&m are a bit cheaper, not sure wether to go for the one button blazer or the 3/4 sleeve open one though

Quite like that oasis top never shopped there before seen a lot of day to day clothes i like on there bookmarked it. Ive seen a couple of tops at dorothy perkins but none in my size sad

warehouse usually do nice going out tops too.

I personally prefer the first top and the blazers.

Not sure about navy jeans with a black blazer but it could work.

What kind of pub? Most are very very casual, don't overdress or you might feel a bit awkward!

My friend who works in fashion said black with navy is very fashionable so navy jeans should be fine grin
