Ok so I bought a dress. I’ve even bought two cardigan/shrug things (both in pink – still can’t decide which I like more). I’ve got a underwear that goes up to my arm pits and will supposedly stop my stomach from moving independently of the rest of me. I have a date to buy a black bra (and sadly no amount of wonder bra is going to curb the side boobs girls… ) and while I’m still contemplating the shoe thing you guys gave me heaps of good advice. So I am back for some more.
Help me out with some bling please.
I have a chubby oval face, blonde shoulder length hair, blue eyes…. Trinny and Susannah tell me I should keep my necklaces ‘delicate’ so I think I’ll just wear my gold ‘K’, but what do I do about ear rings?
I have pierced ears but I always loose one of every pair of ear rings I’ve ever owned (what is with that?) so I’ll buy something new to wear, but what do I buy?
Obviously something gold if I am wearing my gold necklace, but do I go dangly or maybe little diamond studs? Ok fake diamonds, but something small and sparkly? Does it matter if I wear my hair up or down? (un-decided on this point as yet – hair cut Friday will be the clincher)… help? Please!
Oh and about the photo.. I was looking for a recent photo of me that shows all of my face so you could all make an educated assessment… but…. um… ahem… I really really don’t like having my photo taken so there just aren’t any. So this is as good as it gets… this is me at my wedding some 9 and a half years ago, and the guys is my brother-in-law, who’s wedding is the reason for all this buying a dress crap.

First up, you sell yourself short. You might think that you have to go back to photos from ten years ago for us all to think you’re gorgeous, but we know better. Having kids has made you more beautiful, not less. You might feel more comfortable behind the camera, but we’d all like to see you in front of it every now and then ;) Righto, that said… bling.
I say if you wear dangly earrings make them dainty, if you go for studs, make them big and sparkly. If you’ve already decided on the K necklace personally I’d find some sparkly studs (go as big as you can without screaming cubic zirconia). xx
I reckon it’s hard to go wrong with smallish gold ‘hoop’ rings, either half or full, maybe in a matte finish. Alternately a single pearl dangle on a hoop or clasp would be quite classic. You can get pearls in very subtle shades of pink.
I can’t make eBay links work but what do you think about items like #260435404510, 230351010433 or designs like
Not that I am in in any way a bling or fashion expert but if it were me, I’d go danglies if you wear your hair up and studs if down,and I agree with SquiggleMum, on everything she said. :)

you’re going to be gorgeous no matter what. and i suggest pink pearls. of course, in the southern us…we always wear pearls!
Miss F gave me her most intimidating look and said, “You know, mum – If I had my ears pierced I would have the perfect earrings that I could lend the pickle lady…” (tried to tell her your name is Kate – but pickle lady has stuck)
I have no idea, sorry.. And Miss F won’t help me unless she can have her ears pierced *sigh*.
I would be tempted to get a pair of those fake things that look like you have a big hole in your earlobe (or similar)… To keep people’s eyes above boob (or side boob) height. Which is why Miss F says I have to check with her before leaving the house….
