Help!
Have left this far too late but best friends are getting married in 2 weeks. Church wedding (chilly), sit down meal followed by a ceilidh (energetic). Plus will have 8 month DS to entertain although not BF so don't have that dilemma to contend with!
What on earth do I wear?

Sorry forgot to say I'm short (5ft 2in)size 8/10 but have cankles so don't always like getting my legs out!

Well it sounds like trews are your best bet. Could you get a nice pair with a jacket and a partyish top underneath?

And tbh NO ONE will notice your so-called cankles.

Wear a great dress, opaques and cool heels and you will look great

I like the sound of a great dress just no idea what suits anymore (post baby identity crisis!)
You're right with tights, cankles are a lot less obvious

dress with a belted black nice coat, opaques and high black hidden platform shoes for a bit if glam

petite

Do you have colour preference?

Budget?

Shoes shouldn't be too hard, once we know colour of dress, just avoid ankle straps!

oooh am liking the 2nd warehouse one! Can just see it with puke on one shoulder and a snail trail of dribble on the other grin

sequins

momijigari Wed 28-Oct-09 12:24:25

Patterns make puke and snail trail less noticeable!

But I am sure you could have a patterned scarf that looks glam, but serves as a puke catcher, that dress would be nice for ceilidh dancing.

Am liking the sequins, will check out Karen Millen, not sure we've got one near us.
Thanks for all suggestions, am feeling more inspired now!
