this is me in my dress, with no magic pants etc

these are my shoes

am adding a silver wrap to hide my enormous bingo wings but what do you all think?

And the occasion is?

You don't have bingo wings by the way.

I don't have nice arms.

Its for a work ball in a castle and the dress code is black-tie/dressy as possible

Erm, is that your real face?

hf128219 Sat 16-Aug-08 22:41:26

I think a black shawl/wrap would look more elegant. Maybe a long silver necklace too.

I like. Want to see the wrap though.

NutterlyUts Sat 16-Aug-08 22:42:14

Yes it is laz wink s'not my fault I got dodgy genes <sob>

NutterlyUts Sat 16-Aug-08 22:43:23

I haven't got a wrap yet, but I thought silver to try and brighten it up a bit?

I think a silver wrap might detract from those gorgeous shiny shoes!
I think hf's idea is better.
You'll look fab!

Less is more! Never over-accessorise. The key to chic is to remove items when you look in the mirror - 'tis true.

I love my shoes, more then the dress They came with a matching bag that I might use, but might not <descisive as ever emoticon>

Can someone help me find a nice black wrap then?

How about a sheer black wrap? Monsoon/Coast?

Pannacotta Sat 16-Aug-08 22:55:27

This is pretty

Pannacotta Sat 16-Aug-08 22:57:24

Or this?

lazaroulovespastries I thought how rude until I saw the picture.

twinsetandpearls Sat 16-Aug-08 23:05:22

1. please wear a different bra
2. Will those shoes reflect your magic knickers? grin

NutterlyUts Sat 16-Aug-08 23:15:04

omg @ the bra lol

I'd taken this pic on my way out the door to show a mate so please excuse the grey bra

and I don't think the shoes will reflect anything <paranoid now>
I like the first one pannacotta,thanks

I prefer the first shrug as well the second one will be too bulky.

A silver shawl reminds me of bacofoil - think Xmas turkey grin Less is definitely more! Have fun!
