Help . Evening out in Paris with glam young people
Help .... I am doing a charity cycle ride London to Paris . The group are chatting on Facebook about taking a glam outfit for a night out in Paris when we arrive ( they all seem very young 20's 30's). I am 44, have small children so never 'go out' , have never been to any sort of 'club' for 25 years ...... I am size 10 on a good day, and in the right shops (!) 5'10 with the most hideous knees ever which cannot be shown.........I suit warm autumn colours ( according to 'colour me beautiful' a fair few years ago !) Please advise. - have utterly no idea.......
I know you said warm autumn colours. But I am not a fashion expert so will say something totally different: some sort of little black dress maybe? I've learnt that it really suits any occasion. I have one that I wear to all occasions when I'm not sure what to wear. Never felt over- or underdressed in it!
You could book an appointment with the John Lewis fashion advisor and give them your 'brief'. They don't charge for appointments and you don't feel obliged to buy what they come up with. I've always had great success with them and would highly recommend.
Get the black !!!!! Très chic,très ou la la....and the shoes too! Defo not mutton.....I'm 46 and I'd wear it. I'm not a mutton type or at least I don't think so Coated black skinnies (if you hate you knees) some killer heels, a nice top, sharp blazer,clutch....nice look too ,
