Hen night in London - Fashion advice for a frumpy Mum
I'm off into the big city for a hen night in July. As I've not been out since my son was born Jan 2011 I have nothing to wear.
It doesn't help that I am hopelessly unfashionable but I will be going with fantastically trendy toned girls.
We are going to a burlesque show, then some bars/club and I need something stylish to wear. I have no idea what to buy and have randomly bought some dresses to try on..... bit of a disaster..... But I do like this dress from REISS - opinions please.
There was some mention of LBD's so I'm thinking of sticking to a dress and maybe getting a blazer to go over the top. I'm 34, 5'8" and a 12 in most stores.
Forgiving and comfy sounds good!! I've actually got two hen dos to go to. (None of the same people at both) so it would be a bargain as I could wear it twice... the people on both are all vastly trendier than I am... I only really know the bride at each one, so feeling a bit nervous!
