Right I have managed to get myself this dress and will be getting a wrap in gold so all I need now are sandals which need to dressy but I cant do high, high heels grin as will fall and break my neck but want a little bit of a heel if possible. Any ideas / suggestions?

Also need to do some kind of tan on my legs to match up with my arms. Any reccomendations please? Legs are slightly tanned from cycling. Arent there self tanning creams or something that you use over a few weeks?

I never normally wear make up either but feel that I should make a bit of an effort. What do I need to buy to get a natural look? Or what would go with the dress.

Really am very clueless as rarely dress up and have NO makeup at all in the house.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer grin

Am also not flush so cheap suggestions are most welcome!!!!

Hi I can recommend St Tropez Everyday which you apply each day like a moisturiser and builds up over time. It is not the cheapest type of this product but it is probably the best at avoiding streaks and not looking orange.
Make up wise I would really recommend going to a Bobbi Brown counter if you can get to one. They have really great neutral make up and they are trained in doing very natural make up. Even if you don't end up purchasing anything from them, you can get ideas on products and application, and then perhaps look for a cheaper version elsewhere.
And the dress looks lovely!

Thanks blondissimo I'll look inot the St Tropez stuff. My biggest fear was turning orange which is so not a good look grin
Will look into where there is a Bobbi Brown counter too. ma in London so am sure I can find one somewhere. I've never heard of it before but then last time I wore makeup I was a Goth of 17 and that was few years ago.

Thanks again
