I wonder if anyone could help dress me. I need to smarten up for a black tie event in the Spring. I am a SAHM to two young children are rarely get the chance to dress up. I am little anxious about it and would like to look my best.
I am thinking of a lace dress maybe or something that stands out and looks very pretty. Colour is flexible, quite fancy red, for some reason, but not essential. I am willing to throw a fair bit of money at it so budget up to 300.
I am 5ft 9 and a size 10, dark hair and eyes, fairly pale skin.
Any ideas for dresses and accessories would be amazing.
I Lurrrve a red lace dress, but annoyingly they always seem to be ££££ D&G type stuff or cheap and shiny ... Couple of links in the middle that are making my fingers itch but I'm on a spending ban and have no glam things to go to
Thank you v much butter and cathy. I quite like the first but it is sold out in my size. I'm not sure I feel confident enough to wear a strapless dress as my bust has shrunk and become a bit saggy post pregnancy and breast feeding. I like the prettiness of the strapless option though.
Not sure if I prefer to go for a slightly younger look or the more elegant maxi.
