I am on a very tight budget and my daughter is marrying next June. In my closet I have is the pretty simple silk long and A line skirt with matching jacket that has only been worn once. I am thinking of breaking up the set.
I’d have the jacket taken in (it is too boxy) and wearing it with something else for a bridal tea or dressy evening out. I could also wear the skirt with another top. The wedding will be during the evening and the temps will be warm in Alabama.
I am 52, 5’3” full busted, broad shoulders, short waist, not extra heavy, but pudgy. My hair style is wispy short with salt and pepper throughout. I really like sparkly things, chunky jewelry, scarves & wraps. People seem to compliment me when I wear winter colors.
I do not want the normal mother of the bride look, it dates a person I think; I want to look happy and radiant for this most special occasion. Help me think of what I could do to look good for my girl and feel comfortable for the evening. Thank you, Karen [Read more...]
