Need an outfit for anniversary night out

DH is taking me to a trendy restuarant in London for our wedding anniversary. I am clueless about what to wear and need your advice. I am 5ft 4in, size 14. apple shaped so my legs are not bad but I have a tyre around my middle blush, blonde hair and I a 35 but look early 30s (even if I do say so myself!). I would rather order online as I can't get to the shops easily with 2 unde 5s in tow. Budget up to £150 preferablly less. I was thinking of a dress but always end up lookin frumpy.

wear this with opaque tights and these or these - you'll look gorgeous. oh, and big earrings (no necklace).

Think the monsoon dress too long - she's 5'4

I like the shoes. I would never have chosen them but they are lovely. Not so sure about the dress. I have fairly big norks so not sure how it would look. I am thinking one of the shoes, opaque tights and a dress just above knee length would look good.

good shape but too old?

i have the dress, am 5'4" and big norkage too (size 16) and it looks wicked. could easily be taken up too... and the colour is much more flattering than black. honest gov.

I am 5' 2 and a size 12 hour glass and that dress would look hideous on me. I don't think it would suit the op tbh.

Try Warehouse - they often have just above the knee silk dresses for decent prices.

just looked, and its sold out in every size except 14 and 8, so i guess lots of people of all different sizes thought they looked great in it... anyway - i love it! one of the most flattering things i own

Do you know which restaurant you are going to? To give an idea of dress code.

Thats good because I am a 14 so will report back grin

Also off to check out warehouse.
