I'm a SAHM which isn't really relevant except that I don't go out out much and have no idea what's in at the moment. DH has organised a surprise party for my 40th next month, which is lovely except I hate surprises. Anyway I now know about it (thank f*ck) so at least I have a bit of time to find something to wear. I'd like a dress and maybe leather jacket ideally, I'm a size 12 or 10 with big boobs and 5'8. I guess I'd like to wear something really nice and flattering. I don't even know who is coming but probably a mixture of mums from school and older uni mates. The venue is somewhere in London. Help please!!
If you were going to wear trousers, there's a nice cotton twil pair of black cigarette trousers in next that are really nice on. £32ish. They don't look like much on the website, but lovely on. Maybe with a nice top/heels?
Ooo I'm all over this thread... This... www.bombshellhq.com/ I can't tell you how flattering and comfortable the dresses are. I feel like a goddess in them and have now bought 7 If you're in London you can go to her studio in Muswell Hill and try them on... she's a treat of a person too.
Ooo olives let me know if you get one! I have my eye on the (long?) red one too. The stretch luxe dresses are lovely (I have 2) and ridiculously cheap at the minute in the sale. Oh and I find these dresses quite generously cut so am a size smaller than I normally am in shops.
Ha! I'm really not on commission! Just a mega fan...
