Pimsonthelawn's Avatar You look lovely, I think you have had great value for money with your hat. Several year ago I bought an Alexon skirt and jacket in the sale at Boundary Mill, skirt 8 and Jacket 12 it did three wedding with a borrowed hat, just the thing when you rarely dress up, posh clothes just end up at the back of the wardrobe.
Hope your Dad is back to full health now he looks well.

Re:
Angel's Avatar Wow! When I saw this photo before I had no idea the overall look was concocted on such a shoe string!! You are clearly a natural clothes horse. You look fabulous and it looks like a lovely wedding xx

Re:
CalicoKate's Avatar You are all lovely. I didn't like this picture of me at all at first thinking I was delusional and looked fatter than I felt however that doesn't seem to be the case from all your amazing remarks. Did laugh at your comment Angel, it couldn't be further from the truth I hate and detest clothes shopping and rarely feel comfortable in what I'm wearing. owever I did feel good in this outfit. The jacket a size 14 did my ego no end of a boost and although the dress was a 16 it allowed for my still post op 'tummy' to be comfortable as the dress was loose. Wink
