I am a large lady size 20-22 who would like to look nice for her DS's christening, have neen trawling but depressed about the choice out there
So which bits do you like to show, and which hide? And rough budget?
No legs no arms, am short as well so nice smart trousers or long skirt, with a longish top budget about £150 as will keep in cupboard for a long time
I had an idea about this skirt www.sixteen47.com/skirts/51010.html
That skirt's really pretty. Might be difficult to match the colour for a top though. You should be fine to fit Monsoon size 20s.
lovely colourcomes in black toobargaingorge but not sure on etiquette of wearing black to a christeningmaybe a bit too old lady?
and you can wear a pashmina, shrug, jacket, cardie etc over the top.
Like the second one, must come back to you tomorrow, got to feed DS and get to bed as early breakfasts but big thank you for your help.
How about something like this with a grey skirt, or a velvet skirt with this top?
How about a dress, in the teal, or black - I think black's fine for a christening.
Or this in the purple?
another purple oneif you are ok with black this is nice as is thisnot sure about the flower..jewel trimblack jewel trimgorgeouslove itmight be too long
Wow, thank you, I love that gery skirt that you found so will have a good look at that again.Thank you both for your help.
nappyaddict - you're on a roll there. More stuff:darker colours but a nice shape (and good quality stuff).Ditto this,Lovely skirt but rather £££. Maybe some wide legged trousers with a tunic?Sequin tunicOr another lovely topSame sort of shape but maybe a bit more casual.
