I need a great outfit!

And I don't want to spend ££££ as I am losing weight ATM.

I am going out with SIL, BIL and a load of their pals. I am about a 16, have dropped quite a bit of weight, I look like a slightly big person, not a complete fatty like I did before. I am 51 but not an old 51.

It's an evening out, quite a smart restaurant but not posh. I need to wear something that's trendy smart casual. Jeans will be fine with excessively nice top. I like jeggings, and they look ok on me. Heels will be needed.

Assuming I wear existing jeggings and heels, I am happy to spend up to £100 on the rest of it, or a dress that works for that sort of price.

PS if the answer is something for £15- that's even better!

NotMostPeople Sat 06-Apr-13 23:06:35 I like this, flattering, on trend would look great with skinnies and heels if you were twenty something or fifty something.

Thanks mrs-. I want to look amazing. The last time my SIL saw me I was over 14 stone and a wreck. I have lost some weight and now look fairly ok. I want to look amazing! For not much ££££.
