Hi ladies! I have left this late but been looking. Am going to a friends 40th party on Friday. It's in a pub so won't be too dressy. Trouble is, I've put on loads of weight since last seeing many of the people who will be there 8 stoneshock so feel very self conscious. I am 5ft 9 so quite tall and barrel shaped it feels like but technically pear. I'm crap at putting outfits together. I am pale with deep brown/reddy hair and quite big boobs.
Any ideas?! smile

Black midi dress with nice grey or ivory blazer and killer heels! Or if a dress is to much jeans heels a simple black top and fitted blazer style jacket .... Try asos or very as they have loads of great styles which are great no matter what shape or size! It's hard not to but don't feel self confident ... The 8 stoners would kill for more curves or boobs!! (It would cost thousands to buy them ;) treat yourself to a nice comfortable outfit you feel good in then book in at your local salon for hair and make up and you'll feel a million dollars! smile
Knock um dead!! Xx

P.s don't forget to accessorise .... Simple top or dress can look fab with a statement necklace to glam it up x
