I'm a new member and haven't purchased a new outfit appropriate for a bar/evening out in years. I literally don't know where to start! I've procrastinated so badly that now I've got less than a week to buy something. I also don't have time to go to the mall until Saturday morning, so if I can buy it on-line, even better!
My 20th high school reunion is at an outdoor patio/bar of a "hip" restaurant. I suspect it's mostly used on Saturday nights for trendy singles/young couples without kids--basically, not people like me. I don't want to be overdressed, so I thought skinny black pants and a pair of strappy heels, but I can't figure out what to wear on top. It's supposed to be a high of 90 that day, but should cool down slightly by 7 pm.
For background, my wardrobe is 90% work-appropriate separates (trousers, sleeveless high neck tanks/shells, 3/4 sleeve boatneck tops, sheath dresses, etc.) and then some Ts, jeans, and shorts for weekends. I don't think anyone in my closet will work except for the skinny black pants.
I'm a "racy rectangle" (with maybe slim hourglass as a secondary shape per my thread last week), small-busted (34B), 5'7", usually an 8 or 10, long torso, long neck, short legs (30" inseam). I think I'm also a warm Autumn (black hair with chestnut highlights, medium skin with yellow undertones).
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
