Im size 8 and v petite with dark red hair and a bit of a tan (at the mo) i tend to dress quite quirkily and am a big fan of chunky jewellary etc. anyhoo, presentation is dh's last but in a pub so not dress up at all, but still want to look nice. torn between this with either red ballet shoes, bright green slingbacks or wedges. this with thick black tights and black shoes or this with same accessories as first

playsuit is not to my taste and cherry dress a bit too little girly

lulu, saw the strawberry dress in my local topshop and its soooo much nicer in rl. i have quite a "generous" bust and narrow hips so thought it would even me out a bit and look less p3 girl!

OracleInaCoracle Sun 12-Jul-09 15:01:26

this is nice too. have some fab pinky/purple shoes which would be stunning with it!

OracleInaCoracle Sun 12-Jul-09 16:15:24

anymore thoughrts or does everyone think theyt are all vile?

I love that last "broken heart" dress, it is fab.

Lulumama Sun 12-Jul-09 16:34:02

bandeua broken heart dress much better than the contrast button one

envy at being able to wear strapless or halterneck

Lulu, there is a fab sack on page 5 of "Fat girls r us" I may be purchasinggrin

I am so much more "fat girls r us" rather than strapless/halter neck envy

pmsl, just had another look at it on the catwalk thingy and it really is v funky. bit short though, so might be better with black tights and shoes but funky bright bag?

OracleInaCoracle Sun 12-Jul-09 16:41:40

totally seperate issue, but look at these drool

fishie Sun 12-Jul-09 16:45:53

i like the cherries and the strawberry. i really don't like black tights in summer, always looks like one has something to hide.

OracleInaCoracle Sun 12-Jul-09 16:48:05

ah, good point fishie. have a fair bit of cellulite on my legs but fleshy tights should be ok.

OracleInaCoracle Sun 12-Jul-09 16:53:28

like this too

fishie Sun 12-Jul-09 16:56:16

the people (reko) who make those fruit dresses used to be in the unit next door to dh - they are very nice so i hope you buy one of theirs smile

there is something about black and summer light which doesn't quite work i think.

OracleInaCoracle Sun 12-Jul-09 16:57:46

i think im toren between the strawberry and the broken heart.

OracleInaCoracle Sun 12-Jul-09 17:11:46

did they have lots of droolworthy dresses in the window? grin

Lulumama Sun 12-Jul-09 17:32:56

Have ordered the sack, maxi length and matching bag for over the head. grin

OracleInaCoracle Sun 12-Jul-09 17:53:02

Lulumama Sun 12-Jul-09 18:02:30

OracleInaCoracle Sun 12-Jul-09 18:39:00

lol, do you think? i think its pretty cool. was toying with the idea of buying it anyway!

fishie Sun 12-Jul-09 19:41:09
