Post Christmas drinks party

(11 Posts)

Dh and I have been invited to a drinks company being held by his new boss. What on earth do I wear? It's two days after Christmas so I'll be fighting the post Christmas bulge. I'm 5ft3 and a size 10/ 12 at the moment so I'll be firmly a 12 then. I'm 34 and a stay at home parent at the moment so totally out of the loop.

I'll probably wear some sort of shape wear as I have a post section tummy that needs a lot of help.

Help me please :-)

Where's the party being held?

At his bosses home. London somewhere.

Does this look ok?

I like that a lot.

I Hope it's flattering. I've ordered some shape wear.

Gorgeous and perfect. Do you have control top tights? Might be easier than shapewear plus tights.

I've ordered a wear your own bra shapewear thing that has a poppered gusset.

Are these hideous or would they work?

Ooh that glitter doesn't look very grown-up to me, and they're a bit clumpy. The dress is so classy; I'd probably try a simpler shoe.

Yes I was thinking they might be too teenage.
