This for black tie dinner?

Annual event. Have been for 4 or 5 years previously. Lots of friends go, don't want to be the frumpy one smile. Have glam shoes and clutch in pewter / dark silver, and will glam up with jewellery. Usually wear full length bog standard black evening dresses so worried this isn't 'enough'. Any advice gratefully received. I'm 5'6, size 12 and feel its flatteringly cut for my shape.

I really like it. Is a jumpsuit ok for a black tie do? Not been to one for years, but you will know from being at previous ones.

Absolutely love it. You will look fabulous, especially with the pewter shoes and clutch. And you will be so beyond frumpy - well into the glamour section.

<<desperately tries to think of reason to buy it for self>>

It's gorgeous. Assume it'll look like dress in profile so some may not notice. It's fab!

Thank you thanks. Just needed some MN reassurance smile. Nil by mouth for a week !!

Also I really like the fact it's navy and not black which would be more predictable. You will look fab!
