Is this too much?

So I've got a big party coming up, and I've bought a dress. I like it, but is it a bit too much?

In what way?
It's a lovely looking black dress and it was only £45?

nilbyname Wed 02-Dec-15 23:08:54

Sorry- is it too sexy?

The price was fine- thank you for replying

Not at all, its gorgeous. As its Xmas, maybe red cluth? Few matching accessories?

*cluth should say clutch.
I don't know what a cluth is?

Sorry about the weird links. Bloody mumsnet hmm

nilbyname Thu 03-Dec-15 09:24:43

Ooh thanks for the links! I have a pair of black pumps with like a cage fitting/strap. They are nice and not strappy.

Defo going for a clutch - was thinking of that glittery chevron stripped on that the frugality linked to?

Going against the grain here - I'm not keen, sorry. Just a tiny bit too much flesh on show for my taste. Also, the sexy tuxedo dress thing always makes me think of playboy bunnies.

If you go with this dress, I would stick to less flashy accessories. Glitter / red / strappy sandals could very quickly take this dress into stripper territory imo.

Playboy bunny! He he he!

I'm going to team it with-

Glossy black tights, black fairly plain pumps and an oversized clutch in gold/black.
Unswrstated makeup with cat eyes. I'm going for a more high class escort service. wink

I love that. I'd do opaques and black courts, but yeah, just lovely.

Also, I laughed like a drain at high-class escort service. That's always what I aim for of an evening. After two Malibu's it's more Shirley from Eastenders. Fine line.
