We've been invited to a wedding up north at the beginning of April. I'm a good two stone heavier than I used to be, and I've lost confidence.

I've only got about 100 to spend. I'm quite tall at 5'8", and a 12-14…please help!

Which areas you you want to show/hide?
How old are you (approx)?
What colours do you like/suit you?

You are not big at that size and i'm sure you look lovely, if you can give me some more details i'll get a list of options together for you.

ASOS have lots of lovely dresses

Elfina Thu 12-Feb-15 14:37:47

Thank you!

I'm 31. I'm quite hourglass shaped, so biggish boobs, hips, bum and thighs but relatively small waist.

I have dark olive skin and black hair and dark eyes…so lots of colours look okay on me I think.

Thank you so very much.

I should say the dress code is "morning suits". Not entirely sure what that means for women (though can increase my budget if necessary, though will need shoes etc too!).

Im at a wedding oop North at the start of April too so will watch with eager eyes!

this maxi dress is beautiful!

pale blue
floral illusion

Anything there?

Elfina Thu 12-Feb-15 15:13:55

Oh, the hobbs one is pretty!

Elfina Thu 12-Feb-15 15:17:42

The hobbs dress in green is just perfect! Do you think you could find me some shoes and a cover up?

FauxFox Thu 12-Feb-15 17:49:22

Oh I love the green version

navy bolero
tweed jacket
breton blazer

Any of those?

Elfina Thu 12-Feb-15 18:31:31

Love the blazer! Do you think it goes with the green dress?

FauxFox Thu 12-Feb-15 18:57:41

Yup. Here are some pics where similar fabrics look good together so you can see.

If you go for the striped blazer I would opt for plain shoes nude or nude suede or gold if they are not too sparkly in real life

or you could go more adventurous with leopard or bright pink

I love New Look shoes - they are cheap but comfy and you won't stress about them being ruined as you tramp up gravel drives at wedding venues (...weeps for ruined Karen Millen shoes of the past).

faux I think I love you a bit....

I can't really wear nude as have very dark olive skin, so they don't look 'nude' on me!

FauxFox Thu 12-Feb-15 20:57:42

pewter, un shiny metallics, leopard or pink then! I would say navy but when you take off the jacket it's a less good match for the dress...
