Getting dressed up… What to wear…

January 30, 2012

One of the ladies I work with turns 50 in February and is having a huge birthday bash which everyone at work has been invited to. As partners are not invited I will be attending on my own which makes me nervous, Mr Boo always puts me at ease and I’m worried about walking into a party full of people.

My dilemma is what to wear, normally I would chose black trousers and a top that hides my mummy belly. However, as I have lost weight I feel I should want to be more daring in my wardrobe choice.

I would love to wear my gorgeous Holly Willoughby dress I got back in October from Littlewoods (I still haven’t had an occasion to wear it).

I’m always self-conscience about my bingo wings arms so unsure if to wear a cardigan or shawl.
As for accessories I have no idea, I’ve never been very good at choosing necklaces, shoes or bags that match an outfit. I have many bags but certainly no shoes that I could put with this dress, I’m at a loss.
So any suggestions, cardie or shawl? Links to gorgeous shoes would be most welcomed (thank you in advance).
