Party outfit: white stretch crepe pants? Lost my marbles?

My old friend invited my to a huge party. Actually his wedding 120 guests and evening only. It will be very unconvential... e.g. he said 'no suits' and dont even think about hats!

So how do I dress?
- there will be all my friends from "back home" a long time before my life now and who I see every 5 years max... so I want to look great!
- I don't want anything too sexy
- or uncomfortable (dancing all night)
- it could be a new party outfit for me and it needs to look a million dollar but with a cool style

do you need to be tanned for something like this? Is there a high street version? And what would you wear with this for said do.

Ummm... well...

In my humble opinion... I wouldn't risk a high street version as the expensive ones look cheap enough blush

Do you prefer trousers,skirts, long or short dresses?

Still laughinh about your comment. Ok for evening though? Pondering.

Emperorsnewclothesshow Thu 02-May-13 21:53:44

Knee length dress / skirt would be my first thought.
Never really wear "smart" evening trousers.

JoyceDivision Thu 02-May-13 21:55:15

about this?

Not too sexy,not uncomfy (good for dancing) can do heels or skinny flip flip sandals, looks cool... ticks your boxes!

Cool! And I never owned a jumpsuit... Sounds like a fun idea. Might try it on, but mightn't suit me... Although i am slim, but bottom heavy..

Florida retirement village ?? Lol!

Colour blocking not really my thing.. Hmm. Maybe back to square one. I like the jumpsuit though!

Emperorsnewclothesshow Thu 02-May-13 22:03:37

Oh but my crepe trousers are cigarette slim, not flowy...

Joyce I LOVE the play suit and the dress

What a pity I'm up the duff or I'd be ordering those right now

Sorry to hijack your thread OP - a nice dress that you could customise with pin on flowers etc maybe?!

JoyceDivision Thu 02-May-13 22:13:13

I'm too short and too wide to rock theplaysuit, not my usual cup of tea but there's something about it I really like!

these flats or or go nuts in heels?

Emperorsnewclothesshow Thu 02-May-13 22:16:25

I LOVE those heels!!

Oh and hijack away, I don't really mind!

JoyceDivision Thu 02-May-13 22:18:16

Great! Thats you sorted, get the jumpsuit and the heels, if you totter and fall over drunk you won't bare your arse! Fab!

Better than see through pants grin

Fairydogmother Thu 02-May-13 22:22:13

Ooooo smile

Would be lovely with a black dress

Fairydogmother Thu 02-May-13 22:22:52

Darn it the link didn't work

Emperorsnewclothesshow Thu 02-May-13 22:34:45

Thanks Ladies :-) you have given me great inspiration. If the jumpsuit looks awesome I might get it even considering the price... Future party outfit. Really versatile :-)

Fairy - those heels are too high... I know I already strayed from my comfortable idea by loving those gold pumps.

OhBuggerandArse Thu 02-May-13 22:37:17

Back to the original brief:

Another jumpsuit.

Emperorsnewclothesshow Thu 02-May-13 22:42:11

Nice. I like the slit on the side of the leg!

So you all seems to think it calls for a playsuit!
