Going to a club I going to look utterly ridiculous?

I'm not normally someone who worries about clothing choices, generally am quite confident in what I wear and how I look .

However going somewhere new tonight which is slightly outside my usual comfort zone of local pubs and bars. Was intending to wear a beaded playsuit thing, but now having a last-minute flap that I will at best look 'wrong' and at worst downright awful!

How old/ tall/ fat/ skinny are you?

Tbh, I'm a short chubby 22 yo, and even when I've left the house looking an absolute state there is always someone dressed worse, so as long as you look even 1% decent someone else will look worse!

I'm 5ft 6, a 14(ish) depending on where it's from!

Am also 41 (so probably far too old for beaded playsuits), but I like to think I don't look my age....

Bit worried I might be the person everyone else looks better than!

I'd wear plain black or beaded shorts with opaques (and am older than you but a 10-12) but probably not a playsuit. Then again, if it's something you love, you'll feel fine anyway.

velvet do you have a pic of playsuit?

I actually went out yesterday and got some I think black skinny jeans from Top Shop. they looked on trend and seem more comfy than my H&M ones (softer material the Top Shop ones).

Oh I think that's acceptable.. Go out and have a good time!!

velvetspoon Sat 15-Feb-14 14:03:49

Will try and post a pic...

velvetspoon Sat 15-Feb-14 14:06:10

Oh it worked. Never tried that before!

I am not sure whether to ditch it in favour of a dress. I've only worn it once on holiday. I am normally more of a dress than shorts person!

Haven't even thought which shoes to wear yet. Panic is setting in...

HelloBoys Sat 15-Feb-14 14:07:58

Oh it looks nice.

have you got opaque or sheeny tights to wear with it?

Spellcheck Sat 15-Feb-14 14:08:56

It looks nice, I'd wear it with opaque black tights and heels. Definitely wear it!

velvetspoon Sat 15-Feb-14 15:11:25


am still not entirely sure - hoping once I start getting ready I will feel better - have a couple of dresses as backup though smile

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 15-Feb-14 15:15:50

We need to see pics. smile

MrsLettuce Sat 15-Feb-14 20:00:11

That's really rather nice. Go for it! yy to opaque black tights and heels - what shoes do you have?

freerangeeggs Sat 15-Feb-14 20:03:22

I love that play suit and would definitely wear it to a club. Depending on the club/state of my legs I'd wear either opaque tights or bare

Love the play suit! Hope you had a good time smile

milkysmum Sun 16-Feb-14 09:18:54

I really like it!

velvetspoon Sun 16-Feb-14 18:24:20

Just reporting back to say that I wore it. Went with bare legs and some nude heels.

I felt better than expected (lots of alcohol helped!) And everyone said I looked fab smile hopefully they weren't just being kind!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 16-Feb-14 18:36:53

Bare legs in February?! Crazy lady!
