Somehow agreed to attend my school reunion in a couple of months. I can't even begin to think what to wear. What do people wear for proper "nights out" these days? With two small dcs my nights out these days involve a trip to the supermarket! I live in a city so have a fairly good range of shops, but think I'll end up in something ugly. Doesn't help that I'm still a post-baby size 18 and although dieting don't think I'll shift much. So, any ideas appreciated! Mostly these days I'm in jeans, prefer dark (ie black!) clothes by choice. Have a fairly hourglass figure.
Thanks for the ideas It's in a function suite, hard to know how dressy others will be. Disco I think. Think might end up in trousers (with, dare I say it, 'a naice top') as like thought of dresses but think I'd feel self-conscious in one. Have been looking at shoes, might turn up in pair of Irregular Choice shoes teamed with a sack! Budget - well I don't have much, but will likely bring credit card to bear. Maybe £150 all in? Especially if I can re-wear the outfit.
I love Tethers' second dress. Would need to see it on my body though! Remus that dress is good too. I like the shoe suggestions (my instincts always tend toward matchy matchy so good to hear what colours to try!) I will of course fall flat on my arse while dancing to Wham! at some point, won't I.
