So i have 2 choices. One (the dress) i have worn once on a hen night with work colleages and the other a skirt and blouse.
Although the blouse is about 3 years old! But hardly ever worn! It has sparkles on the sleeves.
I would have to wear the dress with a jacket as its sleeveless and i hate being cold!

This is the dress with a jacket

First one.

I like the blouse

JollyGiraffe Tue 12-Dec-17 14:42:12

Definitely the dress!

Outfit 2 looks like a normal work outfit to me grin

Work do? If so the first one but with bare legs/nude tights and heels.

My first thought was the dress, just wondering if peole will remember that i have worn it before!?
Do you think it makes me look chunky?

You have a great figure (promise I'm not coming on to you...)

Dress really accentuates your waist.

Agree with ferrier that nude tights would be best.

I doubt anyone would notice they've seen it before, and even if they did, it wouldn't matter!

Dress! No one will notice and if for some bizarre reason they mention it justo say 'this is my lucky dress'. It looks lovely on you.

I don’t think they would necessarily remember the dress nor would they comment if they did. However, I much prefer the top and skirt.

Dress. Every time smile

Tiedie Tue 12-Dec-17 15:25:36

Dress, especially with jacket! But other one is also good. Have fun!

The dress but with a different jacket. The blue on blue makes me think of the Barclays uniforms.

AdaColeman Tue 12-Dec-17 15:33:05

The dress, with or without the jacket, it's more dressed up and going out! fsmile

No, it doesn't make you look chunky at all.

Have a lovely time, you will look super! wine wine wine

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Tue 12-Dec-17 15:33:52

They both look a bit 'workish' to be honest.

The dress, but with shoe boots/heeled ankle boots and a biker jacket? Don't like it at all with that blue jacket, sorry.

timeforabrewnow Tue 12-Dec-17 15:42:50

The dress - doesn't look at all workish

Abijam Tue 12-Dec-17 15:45:41

The Dress of course. You look great in it and not chunky at all. Agree on the nude tights. glitterball

Loveagoodbook Tue 12-Dec-17 15:57:58

The dress it is then! With nude tights i do have some nice shoes that i will wear and also shoe boots, think the shoes will look better. Not overally stuck on the jacket, but feel i do need something on my arms before the disco, as i do get cold easily!!

Mulberrysilk Tue 12-Dec-17 16:03:01

The shoe/boot on the right has no business attending a Christmas party. Wear the other one.

Loveagoodbook Tue 12-Dec-17 16:06:41

😂😂 mulberrysilk thats what i thought!!

Loveagoodbook Tue 12-Dec-17 16:18:53

What about this jacket? As thinking something plain with the lace

Iwantamarshmallow Tue 12-Dec-17 16:33:02

defiantly the dress . I don’t mind the blue jkt. The white ones nice too if u wanted something new. The shoes boots are cute but they wouldn’t go with that outfit.

Iwantamarshmallow Tue 12-Dec-17 16:35:39

id go for a little faux fur jaket or bolero to add a bit of extra glam

HildaZelda Tue 12-Dec-17 18:32:43

The dress for sure. The skirt/blouse is nice but very casual for a night out. Oh and the shoes on the left.
