Ok, so I need to go a party. A 40th party, in the upstair room of a pub in the big city. There'll be music. Dancing. Drinking. My friend and her friends are cool, hip types. This feels so far out of my comfort zone at the moment...
Can I have some help? I'm 39, size 16 (though post-Christmas I'm on the upper end of size 16), short, usually fairly comfortable in my clothes, but just not at parties. Usual uniform is leggings, skirts and breton tops, or a tunic. I dont' do heels. I tend to shop at Toast (in their bargain sales), Seasalt and White Stuff. God I'm mumsy!
Would probably need to shop online as I live in the sticks.
Don't worry. Upstairs in pubs are usually pretty dimly lit. Sorry, that sounds awful! I didn't mean it to sound like that. I'm exactly the same size as you so I hear you. Are you comfortable getting your legs out? What about a mini/opaques/ankle boots?
