Help.

After losing some weight I bought [this] dress today.

I was going to wear it with nude tights and [https://resources.shopstyle.com/sim/e8/34/e834897cade21976d1cee915dc280e43/marks-and-spencer-m-s-collection-stiletto-high-heel-pleated-platform these]

But I'm nearly 42 and have very little confidence these days.

I'm worried I'll look a tit.

I'm also worried I've picked the wrong bag, and I don't know what coat to get, if any.

Can anyone help/reassure/suggest coats?

TIA

You just need double square brackets [[ at the beginning and end smile

See when you do [ at the start and again at the end? You need to do 2 on each side.

I think you'll need some coloured shoes to lift the dress, TBH. It could look a bit funereal with those shoes.

Another vote for a splash of colour.

What budget do you have? When is the wedding?

Do you have a knee length wrap coat? That would probably be ideal for the dress

Love the dress

Love the style of shoes, but yes, agree some fun-coloured shoes would look great (red/ teal, indigo, purple)
