difference being that i am ridiculously abnormaly shaped.
I am 6'1 a size 24 and have reasonable norkage.

Im going to the evening of a friends wedding (can't make the day time due to childcare issue's) and i have failed to come up with an outfit.

Thats a good picture on your profile I was expecting it to be horriable the way you discribed it!
Will get looking

geordieminx Tue 12-Aug-08 14:37:44

You are beatiful!!!!

I cant really be of any more 5"0 so no experience in anything tall-related unfortunately.grin

Also I hope you dont think I'm being rude but you certainly dont look lika size 24 to me

Mamazon Tue 12-Aug-08 14:39:00

long tall sally was my home prior to putting on so much wieght it is all a bit too tight sad

Im normally a trousers and casual top kinda gal, but figure i should make the effort and go for a dress/skirt top combo.

Budget is a measly £50. though i wouldn't necessarily need shoe's.

What about this - not good for norks maybe but good colour for you...
