Currently looking a tad over dressed for a bank holiday bbq!!!

Wedding in 4 weeks, and dress is strappless, so I am wearing a strapless dress from a wedding I went to last summer, so I don't get tan lines!!!

Unfortunately, being large of boobies, I don't have any strapless tops, so it is going to be an active few weeks for this dress, or an indoorsy one for me!

Lol - just had a text from my mum... apparantly I'm not overdressed, its that no-one else made an effort which is clearly bad manners on their part

poor you i suffer from big boobyness and i try to avoid strappless tops as i dont want them falling down and scaring small children! i feel for you though.

pmsl fs - great text from your Mum! Will look forward to hearing about your day in four weeks though!

Well at least you're not going topless and scaring everyone. lol

What a great mum you have there. I think that she's right, they are all so rude and have made no effort at all.

Tis very fun [not convinced face]

All of DP's friends, who are all game playing people (xbox etc), and me, who likes books, and would probably like the games were I ever given the chance to play em

go and buy a floaty long sleeved cotton/linen type top for outdoors to avoid strap marks and wear sun scream round you neckline.

2 things: sun cream and fake tan.

Think I'll go for the floaty top - will go shopping tomorrow.

Suncream I have a tendency to miss spots , and fake tan will be too dark with the dress, which actually looks good with my skin quite light (pale gold colour)

Don't suppose you fancy posting a link to your dress (is there one)?! Just ignore me if you don't want to - sorry for being nosy! I had a light gold dress for my wedding last year and I am fair skinned too, everyone commented on how the colour really suited me. Four weeks to go, how exciting!

The link makes it look absolutely hideous! It looks all stripey!

Its Tiffany by Maggie Sottero if that helps?

I had a maggie sottero felicity in light gold and my picture was terrible too so I know what you mean! I love maggie sottero dresses, I had a feeling that's would you'd be getting when you said it was pale gold! Does it have a corset back? Mine did and I had the best waist ever!

flamesparrow Mon 02-May-05 20:33:03

Yup - tis all corsetted, and I am a very curvy lady anyway, so it looks amazing!

Off to look up yours now too

Looked much better on me than on the model! Even if I did have to order a size 20!

flamesparrow Mon 02-May-05 21:05:19

Lol - will be honest - not a good picture!

Isn't it strange how these things look much better on?

I went to find a pic to show Psychomum5 (best friend) and the silence before her saying "Its nice" said it all!!! I was all confused then and showed my mum, and she said "God, it looks awful!!"

Each fitting since I've been saying "Are you sure I don't look like a zebra???"
