I really don't do fancy nancy fashion. I'm a frump, mid-30s, size 16, flabby tum (that still looks like I'm pregnant when I'm not), bingo wings, thinning hair (going grey and wiry too). Dress code is dress to impress.
What the heck am I going to wear??? Help!
Where can I buy suitable outfits? What should I go for style wise? Also any tips on a beauty regime (4 weeks to go) - I know we are going to end up being photographed as we are sponsoring an award.
Budget is up to £200 for a dress. Full on evening glitz I'm afraid. I'd be happy with knee length or longer. That one you've suggested is nice pantsalive, but I'm not sure if its evening glitzy enough.
I'm flexible on colour, any except red really, don't want to stand out too much.
Thanks for the suggestions, never thought of TK Maxx will have a look, there's a few round here. Also Asos now on the list to look at. Went to House of fraser today and tried on a few, all too tight in a 16 (eek), but was probably the style of them. tHis one fitted ok though, mbut not v flattering on tummy (where the knot is ) and also I felt a bit like I should be belting out "goldfinger"
