Help, this is my 10th work do and so far I have work 9 v neck black dresses and 1 red v neck dress. Help ne find something different this year.

I like the idea of high waist sequin hotpants but not sure how to style them?

So suggest me something please, budget £30, £40 at a push. I have tons of shoes so could prob find somethin to go with most things.

5ft 2
size 8 but mummy tummy
Olive skinned
Dark hair and eyes.

A very plain silk blouse

Or plain best top and soft blazer

Both with medium heel court, ankle boot or other simple heel. No huge platforms or stripper shoes

No cleavage on show. Let the sequinned shorts do the talking

Oops I mean vest top /tank top

Ohh thanks, I was thinking shoe boots. Would toy go for a brightly coloured top if the shorts are black?

I quite like this too.... with a plain top?

Love the gold drape skirt. It would look amazing with a really simple black top, black opaques and heels.

roll necks are really in and think new look do a bascic one for about 8.99. would work well with the skirt and maybe a big gold statement necklace and cuff over the top?

i love that skirt btw smile

Ohhhh thanks, its nice isn't it. I like the idea if a roll neck but I am really odd and can't wear them, or anything that clings to my armpits or elbows without getting panicky.

I would just like to point out that a woman who is in her 20s, petite and a size 8 should NOT be wearing any boring black v neck dresses to anything , let alone a night out . You have the youth and the figure to wear much more daring and stylish things - go for it [ grin]

I agree the gold wrap skirt is lovely

if its just the armpits and elbows that bother you (and not the neck) sure river island do sleevless ones.

Thanks Samantha grin I am definitely going to try something more daring this year.

oh it's the neck too sorry didn't explain that very well.
