When I was younger a typical pub/club outfit was jeans, heels and an interesting top. I went shopping today for a going out outfit and everywhere I went everything was the same brown, dowdy, shapeless crap. I couldn't find anything interesting or exciting at any of the main high street shops.
It left me feeling very old and out of touch!
So what do you wear for an evening out and where do you get it from?
I'm a size 16 with big hips but a defined waist so I'd like something a bit fitted. My stomach is huge though and legs are pretty 'solid' too. Arms nice and flabby too so sleeves are a must. Oh and I'm 36 so nothing too frumpy.
After 4 hours of shopping I found nothing remotely suitable
Have a look at & Other Stories. I got a great silk shirt in there. Wear it undone low with a black bra (it's hot pink) and either black skinny jeans / leather trousers (they are very tight but not leggings) or have also worn with slim fitted culottes. All with either heeled boots or stilettos. Big gold hoops and a lot of lip gloss! I've also got a black glitter bra I wear under it - again, undone so it shows slightly. Think disco / 70's.
