I have some awesome shoes for sale. A rather large size though. I also have a very beautiful silk dressing gown thingy. Pm me if interested.

What is this for? A fancy dress party? What size and colouring are you?

Where are you looking at present?

It's for a party but more a theme than fancy dress. Thinking more subtle than flapper girl.

flapping I have wee fat feet sadly but thank you.

sun I'm a 16/18 (post baby undecided figure wink) yellow undertones with pink cheeks

rebuild I've just been googling if I'm honest, I have no idea where to look.

Although I'm starting to think channeling a bit of coco chanel might not go amiss?

Either wide legged trousers or a pleated skirt? I'm thinking simple but fabulous?

Not sure where you are in the country but there's a great shop in East Mids called Darcy's vintage and retro -

Always lots of clothing.

sun that's lovely, bit more than I have to spend though sadly.

Loz that looks like a fabulous shop! Not in right part of country for it though. Boo!

After doing some more research I think I'll channel my inner coco chanel and go for a little black dress grin with pearls of course! Now to trawl primark the shops to find one to suit smile

Thank you for your help though ladies. Helped me focus
