Its my birthday soon, in about a month so I'm thinking a bit early lol but I was just wondering what you would wear for a meal for your birthday. I never go out for meals so I have no idea what to wear, I don't want to look overdressed or underdressed! I suppose I'm looking for a 'safe' choice of outfit. I'm a size 10, 5 foot 3 and have big-ish boobs if that helps for outfit ideas. Thanks!

I do like little black dresses but would that maybe be a bit overdressed?

a pretty dress will do fine. you could try florals instead of black.

For a meal, there's no chance I'd wear a dress (although i guess it depends on what type of restaurant you are going to), I'd just wear nice jeans and a trendy top. What kind of restaurant is it?

I recommend visiting the River Island website: http://xml.riverisland.com/flash/content.php

Or visiting a store - it has absolutely every level of dressiness! (it is my Mecca)

you can never go wrong with the little black dress and silver accessories as many have said. you can always wear that dress again and again too.

warehouse have a really cute flippy black jersey dress with little roses on it
that would be the perfect smart and yet not too dressy look
it'd look lovely with black opaques and a little necklace

Either a little black dress - maybe something with a bit of detail to make it look a bit younger/less formal. Warehouse had a lovely black shift-style dress with sort of ruffles at the bottom and a thin ribbon/bow on the bust line. Looked gorgeous on my friend who is a similar shape to you - 5'4, size 10 with big boobs.

Or if you want to go less formal, then some smart dark jeans and a dressy halter top? Something like this maybe..http://www.asos.com/Sarah-Harding-Gi...Evening%20Tops with heels and cute jewellery.

I'd suggest a midi length simple dress with nice earrings and a bold necklace or I'd suggest a midi skirt or a long skirt with a slit and a pretty crop top

If you're planning on eating a lot, peplum dresses are brilliant. I have a black, slightly stretchy one from Miss Selfridge which is my ultimate going-out-to-dinner dress since the peplum hides everything and you still look amazing.

I think that you should wear a purple puffy dress and black heels (jewellery earrings) p.s i would not wear a padded bra as you said your boobs are fairly big
