Right. DP and I have decided to go for it , but that means I need a Proper Frock.
I've not bought anything 'pretty' since my last wedding day for years; I do clean lines and androgynous usually. But I do fancy something a bit more dressy, I think. I have absolutely no idea where to start, though.
Am 5'7", currently size 12 but will be attempting to shed a few more pounds. Nice bits of me are décolletage/shoulders, calves and ankles. Bit of a tum still but not too bad.
Ideally would prefer some sort of sleeve, I think, but doesn't have to be long. NO STRAPLESS.
Ideally long or midi, don't think I want that 50s 'swing' look, but could be persuaded for something lovely.
I do like a bit of lace and/or beading but not OTT. I don't think I'd quite get away with some plain and slinky column of silk, put it that way.
And not white, or ivory. Not pink or peachy. I like greys, dark blues, dark greens. DP will be wearing a kilt with dark green, red and dark blue in it so something that goes with that would be amazing.
Basically I want to look sophisticated and beautiful - so I need tons of help!
