    Hi
    Asked your advice a while ago about a dress for a wedding and everyone was so helpful.
    Well this week I have been to Liverpool 1 and Chester shopping. Eventually bought 2 - as I have 2 weddings this year that is okay!!!!:D
    I got a lovely 'animal print' dress - only problem I need it altering at the top - my weight has been lost from that area and not the bottom half as I wanted!!! Now I could wear that for the August wedding - as I may have lost a bit more weight by then and gives me time to get it altered.
    The wedding in 3 weeks is my priority and I bought a maxi black/white dress in Chester - it fits much better however it has been suggested that I wear flat 'dressy' silver flip flops and to be honest I wouldn't have considered these for a wedding? Just after your thoughts/ideas - I am always conservative when it comes to clothes - however now that I have lost weight I am feeling more confident.
    The wedding ceremony is in an Inn and
    we are there from 5pm.
    Thanks Irene

    Hi Irene, I know how you feel i have also 2 weddings to attend this year one in June and i am just at the start of doing SW. I am going to go for a long maxi dress to but i will be wearing flip flops or very low shoes like them with a back on them as i have problems with my back and cannot wear heels.. there are so many nice flip flops coming out now i am sure you will look and feel fantatstic on the day

    Hi Gems
    Thanks for your reply.
    Think I will go with the dressy flip flops - can have a look around the shops this week while I am off.
    The August wedding will be more dressy so have plenty of time to sort out a dress if I don't wear my original choice - all depends on my weight loss?
    Realised that I 'lack confidence' when it comes to clothes - always wear the same sort of things when I go out - trusted black trousers and dressy top.
    Thanks again.
    Irene

    Hi Gems
    We sound very similar.:)
    I have known for a long time that my wardrobe has looked very boring!!!! Time for a change.;)
    Will let you know how I get on (off to shops now and while I am there I will look for some dressy flip flops).
    Good luck with the weight loss/cycling. I prefer outdoor exercise like walking and cycling to the gym - cheaper also.
    Thats is another thing I realised the other day while trying stuff on - need to tone up 'certain' areas!!!!! It never stops does it?
    Speak soon.

    I would wear the flip flops if it were me... although I am a sucker for heels!!! You're likely to spend a bit of time standing I imagine.

    New look have some lovely ones, and they do the wide fit too, which are great.
    I also noticed a really pretty pair in Evans the other day I think.

    I'm a bit of a shoes and handbags girl! lol.

    Hi Emma
    I did pop into New Look in Liverpool to look at a few things but at the time I was not looking for flat dressy flip fops so this week I will call into the local New Look and have a browse.
    I have tried on the black/off white maxi dress several time today and I am definately going with it. Love looking at accessories so something else to do this week
    Thanks
    Irene
