Tasteful and 'well put together' looks on a budget?
Try this? www.marksandspencer.com/spotted-dress/p/p22437942 Feminine but not too girly. I have it and it fits well over large norks (G cup) and arse - but don't size down whatever the reviews say. (You don't have to wear the stupid neck tie thing as it comes off or could use it as a belt). And its reduced at the moment. Shoe boots or flats would work as would plain black court shoes. Formal dinner done? Then jeans and pretty top - fine knit/ sparkly something for the buffet with shoe boots or heels from formal dinner. Dark slim or v flared jeans would work best I think. Ceilidh - you need to be able to move. That's all I know! Suggests flat shoes! But jeans or trousers with a smarter top should cover it. Day time stuff - jeans should be fine as long as smart not scruffy. Unless there is some other dress code. But for spa and outdoor pursuits, jeans or trousers would be fine. What do you have generally? I have heard Sainsburys Tu range are good at the moment and always seem to have offers. Also online now. Sorry - not very helpful but I wanted to recommend the dress.
Now i was looking for a work dress and ocled through to this site. OS to just me or does this model look like she's got a pillow stuffed down the back of her dress? I think she's gone the full kardasian.
i like a few of the joe Brown's things but I am slightly wary as it does look like identikit outfits of women in the village that we are friendly with. I don't want them thinking that I am trying to be their doppelgänger! Thinking maybe a daytime outfit from there is a goer.
Ooh, this is a challenge! Good thing I have a great deal of procrastinating to do.
Right. So there is tromping to be done even en route to the formal stuff, eh? By thick tights do you mean opaque or close to it? If so, what about something like this for the formal, with patterned tights and really sleek knee-high boots? body con Quirkiness would need to come from the pattern in the tights and/or accessories.
