Help me! Graduation dinner outfit! Pic added :)

Postby clothmama » Sat Feb 22, 2014 4:25 am

:panic: I'm so unorganised (well I haven't had the time to be fair!) but I now have my Graduation dinner looming next Friday and I have nothing to wear. It will be nice cocktail like dresses - a little bit glam but not to OTT. I know some of the girls are wearing maxi dress type things and another has a sparkly lacey number. My issues are A/ I'm really really fat and B/ I can't wear high heels really with my ankle C/ My ankle is still a little swollen and there is still a little bruising (off topic but @docmaggoo is this normal 3 months on :roll: ??).

So I'll need a dress, shoes and a bag (unless it goes with pale pink as MIL gave me a little evening bag for my birthday) :panic: :panic: :panic:

Can someone please help me with ideas or even links (to Aussie things obviously - if I'd been organised I could have ordered from the UK but too late now!)? @northernruth

I m rubbish at picking outfits but didn t want to read and run!
What shape are you for those that follow? ;)
I d be a bit worried that those dresses are quite a range of sizes in one dress.
:hug: I don t envy you the job, I m not known for my love of shopping!

Ditto with shopping - no idea!!

The dress you linked to looks lovely. Nice with strappy sandles and painted toes

I think you might have to go try a few things on!

Does it have to be a dress? What about a lovely pair of palazzo trousers and a top?

Very big bum - pear shaped and generally just fat atm :oops:

I don't even know what plazzo trousers are :oops: :giggle: off to have a google! Maybe that is a good option and I could easier get away with flat shoes.

More than a few I'd say! I'll have to try to go after work next week and worst case Thursday and hope I find something before Friday!

I like the colour of that dress but I don't think the style would be flattering on you Tory. If you are happy uncovering your arms something halter neck and then gathered under the bust would broaden your shoulders and flow over your lower half?

If sleeveless is a no-no I'd still suggest something better fitted in the top and then flowing from empire / under bust. Maybe a long tunic with wide leg trousers? I'll have a nose about when on a computer.

I wish I could help, I am totally useless with fashion!

I suppose my choice would be wide legged pants and a blouse or something?
