I'm going out tonight to celebrate my new job, found this little bargain in H&M for £7!
How would you style it?

I'm 5"3, size 14 with big boobs and hips. Oh and it's raining!

Black leather jacket? Are you slim of midriff? always feel a pang of fear over a cut out, bulges of flesh aren't appealing.

No bulges of escaping flesh.
DH eyes nearly popped out of his eyes (in lust not horror) When I tried it on.
Which shoes??

Ankle boots maybe? What are the choices you have?

Congratulations on both the job and the bargain! If it was me, i would keep everything else very low key: flat shoes/ankle boots (sorry - don't do heels), and, like Mardy says, a leather/denim jacket that I could whip off at some point when it was time to make an impact.

But I should add that the last time I went out on a Friday night, I bumped into Noah in the bar.

Need to see a picture of you in it.
Looks fabulous.

I gave a dress like that, same colour too, and I wear it with ankle boots and a leather jacket.

Bloody hell you're brave. We need a photo!

I'd definitely keep everything else simple. If it were me I'd wear it with my tan sandals (substituted for black low-heel ankle boots as it's raining) and oversized pale denim shirt. Hair in a loose bun, simple earrings, not too much makeup.

As the dress is so "look at me", I think if you team it with heels and heavy makeup you'll look very OTT. Depending on where you're going of course.

Dress on - yes I know my bra is showing but I'll fix in a sec.

Can we have a better pic from the front? Hope you have a fab night. Wish I was going out!

Looking great. Have a good night.

You have a good figure, but I'm sorry that dress looks awful.

Calista! Not much point in that when the OP went out in said dress last night.
