Find me a fancy outfit!

I have a challenge for all mumsnet style and beauty!

My DD (PFB) is getting christened in June and I need something to wear!

I have about £150 to spend on a full outfit and normally I would be so happy to spend money but since she was born I just don't feel myself.

I'm 5ft 1, probably size 12-14, I have a decent cleavage but would love to cover up my big wobbly belly! I would be happy with anything flattering to be honest and the only thing I don't want is any embellishment on the shoulders, neckline.

I would really really appreciate your help!

What's your colouring? Would you like a hat? Oh, and do you have spanx?

Oops sorry forgot crucial details!

I'm very fair skinned with blonde hair. I'm happy wearing most colours but not black or red/orange.

I don't have spanx... Should I? I've tried control pants before and couldn't stand them, too restrictive and just seemed to roll the flab elsewhere!

Sorry posting on phone so never manage to answer in one post!

I would LOVE a hat, but I'm not sure if I'd look to old in it? I'm 28. And also is a hat too formal for a christening? I used to love dressing to impress but since DD, I've just lost my sparkle a bit.
