Please dress me I have no idea about what suits, I haven't worn a dress since my wedding 12 years ago , but want to be brave. I have a wedding evening do to attend in June and there will be lots of friends and family that I've not seen for years. I'm a size 16 and 5 foot 7 with heavy legs and smallish boobs, not fancying a maxi dress but want to look amazing with the whole works. I think I could get away with knee length but am clueless , I'm a warm colouring please give me some fab ideas
We need to know more - Waht sort of price range? Favourite colour to wear? What's your position on sleeves - for example, I'll wear sleeveless, 1/2, 3/4 and long sleeves but can't take sleeves that fall on the upper arm. Body shape?
I think I would prefer a sleeve either short or 3/4 although I guess it will be warm in June , I'm 40 years old and could stretch to £150 for a dress. I'm open to any colour apart from purple or orange
No problem, if you like the print they have a few tops in it that might go with the plainer skirt I linked too. You may also like this dress? I'd try Reiss for plain but pretty tops, maybe something like this?
