OK so I bought a dress, you know, for that huge family wedding that we have coming up in less than three weeks! eeek!
It’s black, just below the knee in length with a cross over v-neck, and well, yep… it is almost as boring in real life as it looks in that terrible photo. It does have some trim at the neck and at each side at the bottom are these little pleated bits with more trim. So it’s not totally boring… but still boring.
I’m going to need to buy a black bra (no I don’t already own one… ) and some kind of coat so I don’t freeze to death (no I don’t own one of those either unless you count polar fleece or denim). Any suggestions on a coat style that will work well over a dress and still be wearable with jeans later on?
And hello, side boobs? Yep.. I’m taking you to the wedding too, aren’t you lucky!
This dress does nothing for my side boobs… in fact I think it might even make them look more noticeable! Though I am still hoping and praying that the universe shall provide me with something suitably fabulous to hide the side boobs with. I’d settle for a nice cardigan that wasn’t ‘long-line’ and and in any colour other than ‘drab’… but that is proving a tad more difficult than I first thought. I’d go for some kind of fancy wrap or shawl too, if I could find something appropriate and figure out a way of keeping it on while dealing with three small children.
I have seen these rather cool shoes in either pinks or blue/greens however, and they are cheap too! With kind of an Indian feel, they have embroidery and beads, and would look fab teamed with some kind of wrap from Ishka or similar. Can I wear slip on shoes with stockings though? I know open toe shoes and stockings are a tad on the daggy side but what about showing your stockinged heel out the back?
And on that note do I wear black stockings or skin colour?
I am a fashion nightmare aren’t I? Help me oh fashion gurus of the internet.
