Hi there- a bit of advice please gals!! I've been invited by a work colleague to her son's 21st birthday party (they are sikhs). So, I don't want to dress over the top dressy dressy as there will be a lot of dressy, sparkly saris and a lot of younger girls also looking glammy.
I just want to go looking like I've made an effort but not over the top-I'm certainly not looking to compete-just blend in-ha ha!! Is this dress too daytime looking or could it be ideal? I think it could look dressier with some better accessories and sparkly jewellery-ie different earrings, necklace added, different sandals, clutch bag added? I would rather dress simply and add bits on, rather than have a glamorous dress. Plus, there will be a banquet dinner, so this dress being stretchy jersey would be most comfy-ha ha!
If not, I've just got a lovely Zandra Rhodes for Topshop kaftan chiffon top, which I might pair with trousers (yet to be bought). Any comments appreciated-thanks!
UPDATED TO ADD: THANKS VERY MUCH for all of your opinions and comments-they were all very much appreciated and taken on board. The general opinion is to go with the dress and accessorize with dangly type earrings, clutch and sandals-either these or a different pair. There were a couple of opinions towards the new Zandra Rhodes kaftan. Kate at makedoandmend had a brilliant idea of getting white trousers, which is a wardrobe staple anyway. I will try and get these by the party date, show pictures and come to a decision-with your help of course!!!
