I need a wedding outfit for next weekend.

The code is quite smart dress. I am 5'4 and very slim. I don't wear skirts or dresses and I like to cover up. I need shoes too- something practical- I will have 3 yo ds with me. Budget £100 for outfit (not inc. shoes) Preferably something I can wear again.

Can anyone help me?

So are you after a dress/skirt, even though you don't normally wear them, or would you prefer trousers? Maybe with a smart tunic top?

staryeyed Tue 12-Aug-08 14:13:18

Trousers with tunic top would be good. I dont do dresses or skirts at all really.

JackieNo Tue 12-Aug-08 14:14:44

Can you do short sleeved, or would it need to be long sleeved? V-neck, or not? Just trying to gauge how covered up you like to be.

If you could do a bit of a v-neck, maybe something like this with some wide-legged trousers? Or in bronze if it suited your colouring better?

staryeyed Tue 12-Aug-08 14:20:43

v neck is ok not too low though. Short sleeved is also ok.

Do you like this top? Would look fab with loose trousers and flat sandals

that blouse is nice JackieNo but I dont really like the colours.

missblythe Tue 12-Aug-08 14:24:17

What sort of colours do you usualy wear, Stary?

staryeyed Tue 12-Aug-08 14:25:13

Tmmj could you link to shirt I looked through monsoon but cant find it.

staryeyed Tue 12-Aug-08 14:27:02

I like dark pinks, whites, creams, dark greeny-blues, some bright blues, greys. Not very adventurous with colours I'm afraid.

www.oasis-stores.com/fcp/product/Oasis//Statement-flower-bandeau-top/4490069900?colour=multi I found this and quite like it but Im not sure that A it will fit me well and B that it wont look too casual.

JackieNo Tue 12-Aug-08 14:32:47

I don't think it's too casual at all - would you wear a shrug or something over the top? Lovely colours.

missblythe Tue 12-Aug-08 14:34:30

Very pretty top, would look fab with wide white trousers, flat gold flipflops and gold jewellery.

trousers

If it didn't fit, you could have it taken in at a tailor/alteration place v easily, for about £10-£15 I shoud think.

Nice print top here

Those trousers are very nice-I've never shopped in coast do they make quite long legged trousers?

I don't know what I would wear on top. A white cardi?

staryeyed Tue 12-Aug-08 14:38:08

That is pretty but I feel the v may fall too low iyswim.

missblythe Tue 12-Aug-08 14:38:53

If you went for white trousers,
I'd go for a dark pink cardi/wrap. Something like this:

staryeyed Tue 12-Aug-08 14:41:22

yes I think that would go nicely missyblythe.

So what shoes/bag/jewellery do I wear?

missblythe Tue 12-Aug-08 14:41:24

No idea how long Coast trousers are, I'm afraid, but apparently Coast customer services are v. helpful, so you could ring them and ask.

staryeyed Tue 12-Aug-08 14:48:52

I will try.

missblythe Tue 12-Aug-08 14:49:22

Something along these lines?

flipslops

flipflops

clutch

And some gold jewelerry? A gold cuff bangle and a fairly chunk necklace

staryeyed Tue 12-Aug-08 14:53:17

The second sandals are ok but look like they may rub.

Not sure about the clutch bag.
