I'm going to a wedding rception (not the service) next weekend and need a new outfit.
I'm tall, 5"11 and a dress size 18. I have a highstreet budget.
Inspiration is much needed smile

Just lots of questions from me for now, I'm afraid smile

What colours do you like? Body shape? Colouring? Actual budget? Are we looking for a dress? Do you have any shoes or bags you' d lime to make use of?

BelieveinWigan Wed 12-Feb-14 19:38:07 something like this?

MrsLettuce Wed 12-Feb-14 19:38:19

Oh yes, and, do you do heels?

SilveryMoon Wed 12-Feb-14 19:45:52

My favourite colour is green. I am quite pale, brown hair that I'm hoping to wear down, but don't get me started on hairstyles wink sad
I reckon I'm pear shaped.........maybe apple, have never been able to work it out properly. My shoulders are as wide as my hips, I think.
I don't really have an 'actual' budget, but don't want to spend loads because I'll probably never wear it again due to being a saddo who doesn't get out much!
I don't do big heels because they make me taller than dp but can do little kitten heels. I don't do open toe shoes. I have a black clutch, but have no problem buying accessories to match an outfit I find.

MrsLettuce Wed 12-Feb-14 19:46:59

MrsLettuce Wed 12-Feb-14 19:48:07

Thanks Mrs Can I wear black to a wedding? I thought that was a no-no, or is that just if yiu go to the service too?

MrsLettuce Wed 12-Feb-14 19:55:42

Black is fine with bright accessories, even for day. It's looking funeral that's wrong but TBH that's also perfectly possible with navy too.

BelieveinWigan Wed 12-Feb-14 20:16:41 love this

SilveryMoon Wed 12-Feb-14 20:17:51

That is nice believe How would I wear something like that?

BelieveinWigan Wed 12-Feb-14 20:23:07

With either flats or a block heel black or blue would work. smile

SilveryMoon Wed 12-Feb-14 20:26:02

I like

SilveryMoon Wed 12-Feb-14 20:27:44

Leggings? Tights? Clear? Jacket? Cardigan? Shawl?

BelieveinWigan Wed 12-Feb-14 20:33:42

That is nice smile I'd say black tights and shoes but yes to a shawl

SilveryMoon Wed 12-Feb-14 20:35:52

Hmm. I do like the butterfly one.

BelieveinWigan Wed 12-Feb-14 20:38:00

It's really pretty

SilveryMoon Wed 12-Feb-14 21:27:07

oooohhhhh, that's nice

MrsLettuce Wed 12-Feb-14 21:38:06

these shoes would be great with the green dress. you'd need a bit of detail in the bag though, I think. MAybe along the lines of this, possibly.
