This HAS to go well (or I will cry - lots)

Fake tan done - will pop more on tonight. Not really dark just the holiday skin stuff to help hide milkbottle look.

Will paint nails later - pale pink.

Make ups sorted. Will straighten hair and pray for no rain.

Am going to wear tights (very dark ones, look like leggings), short denim skirt and boots - should I wear heels or flats?

And either a sort of tunic like top that flows out or a tight black top?

Then a thin cardi over, purple probably. With black beads.

Have I forgotten anything? Am so nervous. We are going out for dinner and then drinks.

I wish I was going on a date. So jealous! envy

Anyway, I'd probably wear the heels but then I'm only 5'4" so need the height. What do you feel more comfortble in? I find I'm more confident in heels and feel a bit like I'm just off to the shops in flats.

If you're wearing the cardi then go for the tighter top. A tunic and cardy might look bulky worn together.

Had a look at your profile and you're ever so pretty. I'm sure you'll look fab whatever you wear.

Have fun!

I'd be more comfortable in flats myself but then don't listen to me, I haven't been on a date since 1993...

What colour is the tunic? A tunic is more casual and a tight black top a bit more dressed-up imo (but as I said, I've not got a clue really)

Its black as well.

I am pretty short so am considering the heels but not sure if I can be bothered walking about in them.

I'm at work just now, just want to get home and try it all on <impatient>

I think you'll look lovely no matter what so try it all on in different combinations tonight and just choose what you feel most comfy in <when did I turn into my mum emoticon>

I am so excited, I want to jump up and down and squeal blush
