Need a dress and shoes, accesories etc ... for October wedding,

Dark eyes, long black hair. Curvier gal wink

size 14/16,

Prefer something that covers upper arms but could be cardi / shrug.

Good boobage (with right underwear- Size slightly sagging DD)

Will be wearingfull sucky in underwear.

Always fancied a Dita Von Tease style dress, something very 50s but that will be OK with my size IYKWIM?

Any ideas?

Oh I am also crp with heels, so chunky heels or wedges!

is this too much for country house wedding??

CMOTdibbler Mon 17-Aug-09 15:29:17

Someone linked to this website the other day, and I would love one of these dresses if I was curvy. They have lots of colours and matching shrugs.

BunnyLebowski Mon 17-Aug-09 15:29:35

So very weird - that's the dress I was just in the process of linking to!!

Would be perfect imo smile

I've had a look on dollydagger and vivienofholloway but the dresses are a bit too costumey.

Love this too!

gorgeous colour

pretty - love the lace detail

nice too

nickelbabe Mon 17-Aug-09 15:32:56

is gorgeous

you'd need a shrug with number 1, though.
this is fun!

MadameCastafiore Mon 17-Aug-09 15:33:11

These are a bit 50's.

Disenchanted3 Mon 17-Aug-09 15:35:50

Am thinking mines a bit too out there, I'm not sure I have the stuff to pull it off.

These are all lovely!

BunnyLebowski Mon 17-Aug-09 16:01:29

It's not out there at all! It's sexy and classy and with good underwear would be really flattering to curves! And it's a bargain!!

All you need are black shoes and a bag and maybe a bangle. Don't ruin the line of the dress by putting a shrug over it.

Disenchanted3 Mon 17-Aug-09 16:18:29

Would I have to do bare legs?

Maybe Id be better off with something black with balck tights?

[[ wAllFlag=&catalogId=20552&storeId=12552&productId=1269855&langId=-1&categoryId=&parentcategoryrn= would the blue look better with tights?

It is October?

Disenchanted3 Mon 17-Aug-09 16:19:16

sorry blue

I think I'll get the blue with black tights, killer heels,


Disenchanted3 Mon 17-Aug-09 16:20:24

these shoes??

BunnyLebowski Mon 17-Aug-09 16:29:08

The blue is nice.

I think the shoes are foul - sorry!

I would do bare legs and shoes like




Disenchanted3 Mon 17-Aug-09 16:35:52

My legs are awful thoug, full of stretch marks

I thought my shoes would be good as theres no way they could fall off my feet, those 'just slip your foot in shoes' always seem to get left on the floor when I lift my foot up! lol

Like I said, Im not too good in heels!

Disenchanted3 Mon 17-Aug-09 16:36:53

these better?

Disenchanted3 Mon 17-Aug-09 16:38:25

<<completely off course>>

but I quite like this!

HolyGuacamole Mon 17-Aug-09 16:40:19

I agree with Bunny, The blue shoes are too fashioney. The dress has a good impact so more classic styled shoes would look better esp if you're going for a Von Teese look.

I like the first pair that bunny has linked.

HolyGuacamole Mon 17-Aug-09 16:41:34

Noooooooo......that black dress is......just.....noooooo. I think it looks cheap, sorry don't mean to be rude blush

BunnyLebowski Mon 17-Aug-09 16:43:40

Yeah they're not bad!

these would stay on!

as would these

I know what you mean about the feet slipping out!

Disenchanted3 Mon 17-Aug-09 16:44:28

Lol Holy!

Im just having a panic, I wont buy the DP dress as Im not sure Im confident enough for it, i thought big black roomy dress and grabbed at it~!

I think Ill have to start my search again and be a bit more realistic to me!

DollyPS Mon 17-Aug-09 16:52:12

thank christ for that as I thought I was alone there in that its hidious.

the blue shoes are lovely as is the black.

You cant wear black tights hen with the dress so flesh coloured tights for that.

Loved the 50's halter neck one as well all red and white polka dots very fab.

BunnyLebowski Mon 17-Aug-09 16:56:04

What about any of these? They're not really of one style in particular but they all caught my eye

Blue again - very sexy and flattering

Green and grecian

Green and grecian again but more structured this time

I don't think I should like this but I kinda do!

Disenchanted3 Mon 17-Aug-09 17:00:05

I like the first green one!

this is nice and classy too i think?

HolyGuacamole Mon 17-Aug-09 17:06:14

Oh the green and Grecian one is lovely, swoon! And, yes, I shouldn't like the pink either but I do, it's very different.

I love Grecian style, the Lipsy one you linked is nice too. Look at pictures of Angelina Jolie for Grecian, she does it very well, although she does tend to go for floor length ones.

You could also wear sheer black tights, rather than thick black. They make your legs look curvaceous and rather sexy.
