I need some inspiration & guidance.....I've got a hen night on Sat and only have Fri pm to go looking for something. Have been told it needs to be glam - but this kind of goes against my nature so am a bit stuck. Also can't afford to spend loads.

Two weeks later I have a school reunion - need to look gorgeous (obviously) but want to look myself, if you know what I mean.

Money is a bit tight so can't go spending loads...but still want to look good & not too mumsy. Can anyone help??

Unless you have tanned legs I'd wear jeans, heels and a sparkly/strappy top for the hen night.

School reunion hmm is it evening or day? meal/drinks/party/pub?

I have the original persil white legs - so a good idea. I don't currently have any sparkly going out tops - partly from bfeeding 2 little ones & also being rather nork-ly challenged - in the larger sense! Any ideas??

School reunion - it's in a pub during the day but will finish quite drunkenly in a club.

hmm What about a floaty/silky tunik top (something with a bit of bling) for hen night. Try H+M (I love at the mo).

What about skirt, boots and tights and v neck jumper for pub do? (good luck btw, I'd rather stick pins in my eyes than go to my school reunion lol).

we needd a budget and an idea of what you look like

Oh yes, of course.....there was I thinking that the MN vibes would work instead grin

I'm 5'3", size 12 (with 32H norks) - short waisted, legs are slim. Have pale complexion, mousey brown hair. Budget in total would be around £150 for both (if at all possible).

Does that help? Have I missed anything out?
