...type thing. apparently it's "cocktail dresses" according to partner, his first year at this company so i want to make a good impression and not feel like a frump.
DD is 4 months old now and while i've lost most of the weight round my legs i've still got a good tummy pouch and imo massive arms. am broad shouldered and the boobs have lost their zest for life as well
can anyone offer advice on a good shape/style dress to wear? ideally something with black tights and flat shoes, and something i can use to cover my arms?
usually i'm a real scruff (26 but still have my teenage leggings, cardi and vest top dress most of the time) but i'm going all out and trying to be a proper adult. getting my makeup, hair and nails done for it for the first time in my life and i don't want my outfit to let me down!
Cocktail dress basically means knee length, but evening trousers [so silky material rather than wool pinstripe or jeans] and an evening top will be equally acceptable unless he works somewhere amazingly conservative like the military or something.
You don't sound like someone who wears dresses a lot [at the moment anyway] so I'd pick something classic that won't date quickly and with different accessories will look different. Like a little black dress or navy etc.
