I doubt I’m the only one who is clueless when it comes to choosing a new outfit. I have the worst body shape ever and always feel like I am on display. It has been a long time since I’ve bought new clothes for an occasion, so long in fact that I usually just stick to the same outfit time and time again – I think the last time I bought a dress was four years ago for a hen party and that dress has been worn to at least five events since.
But then the trouble begins what do I wear? A dress? if so, what length do I choose? What colour dress should I wear, as I always seem to go for a black dress and weddings shouldn’t be dark and dreary and do I have shoes and jewellery to match? If not then I need to buy new so that they match my dress. How should I wear my hair? up or down? Will it need cutting? The questions are endless.
Here are four of my favourite dresses. As it’s my birthday and Christmas soon(ish) I might just ask for some money so that I can treat myself to at least one of these dresses. At least then I will have more outfits to choose from for both of the big days.
1. This dress is definitely something I wouldn’t normally choose as it has a very noticeable pattern but I think it is very nice. I’m hoping to have lost a stone in weight by the time the first wedding arrives. If this is the case I think this dress would flatter my figure nicely.
2. For this dress to be considered I definitely need to lose that stone of weight. This dress looks gorgeous but I think it would show far too many of my lumps and bumps off as it would cling to all the wrong places on me – definitely one to aim for though.
3.I love this dress and I think it’s very Julia Roberts / Pretty Woman alike. I’m not sure the colour would suit me but I would certainly give it a try if it was to make me look half as good as Julia looked in her dress.
4. This is a dress I would never ever usually consider but someone once told me you should wear what you want and what you feel comfortable in. I love the lace material – it is something that I have always loved and I’m so glad that there are more dresses out there that are made with lace. I think this dress would definitely be better suited to a spring or summer wedding though.
I think my hunt will go on for a little longer but hopefully, something will catch my eye soon. Then I only need to think about what shoes I will wear and how I will style my hair / do my makeup.
Do you find it hard to choose an outfit for other people’s big days? Please say yes so I’m not the only one.
