Hi all,

It is with great sadness that I am typing this. My dad passed away suddenly on Monday after having a severe stroke on Sunday morning.

Whilst I am still in a bit of shock I am left with what to wear to the funeral. I know I have to wear black, but as a daughter, I want to look nice - but not over the top (iykwim).

The wake is also at my house, so I have to be comfortable, as I will be needed in the kitchen etc.

I was thinking of a lace dress I have (it is more of a classic style). Which is getting altered for me at present. It is almost winter here in Aus so it can be a bit cold.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, I also have to organise my husband and 2 kids (boy and a girl).
