My new dress - suitable for a wedding?

I am not a person to wear dressy clothes.Normal for me is t-shirts, joggies and trainers. On occasion I will do jeans and boots but for me that is about as far as it goes. I have never felt comfortable in skirts and dresses, as few ranges are designed for either my age range, or my size, and if you put the two together then there is not a lot of choice.

BonmarchĂ© is the UK’s largest womenswear value retailer catering for women over 50 years. We pride ourselves on offering quality clothing with appropriate styling, great value and in a wide range of sizes, along with outstanding customer serviceWe have won awards for our clothing, winning the ‘Best for flattering fit’ award at the Yours 50+ Fashion Awards 2012. We were also crowned ‘Britain’s Best Women’s Clothing Retailer’ at the Verdict Research Awards 2012 as well as coming second for the nation’s favourite retailer, and most recently in 2013 we were awarded The Yours Magazine 50+ Fashion Awards, where we were voted as “best for knitwear”.
The BonmarchĂ© ladies fashion range includes casual and formal separates, outerwear, dresses, swimwear, lingerie, nightwear and accessories in addition to the exclusive BonmarchĂ© collection by formal Royal couturier David Emanuel.

So when I was asked to try a product, I thought I would move out of my comfort zone and try something different. I have a wedding to attend next year and so decided to go for a long dress. The black dress part underneath is full length, with the top half hip length in a flowing patterned half sleeve top.

So I tried on the dress and realised its possibilities to be adaptable. 

Here I have worn it with fit flops, ideal for a walk along the beach.

I tried it with a three quarter sleeved casual cardigan and a pair of flat canvas shoes, ideal for sight seeing when on holiday.

How about with some jewellery if going out for a meal?

Or with a shawl and matching shoes for a more formal occasion.

I could team it up with a black cardigan, a black clutch bag and back boots.

A casual three quarter length cardigan, a beaded bag and flat canvas shoes.

I think this dress would look great with this fab looking coat. May need to invest it this for the wedding next year.

Or how handy would this onesie be for the next few months? 

Why not go across to BonMarche and have a look what they could do for you?
