Ok so I'm going to a 40th birthday party at the end of May.

Lots of people I haven't seen for ages will be there including my ex!!

I have moved on and am totally settled with my DH however I must look good and for my own ego boost I want my ex to do a double take!!!

Sadly I no longer have the figure of the 25 yr old I was when he last saw me!
I have a decidedly round tummy & love handles but generally happy with my arms and legs.

The party invite states party dress.
I do not go out much so no idea what people are wearing these days.

Help me please with some suggestions or even wear to start looking!!

How tall are you? What dress size? Can you do heels or prefer lower?

Does this appeal? House of Fraser Monsoon navy trapeze dress.

Hah! Great minds...
Fingers crossed it looks great when it arrives (seems promising) and you feel super confident on the night.
