Our first stop was Hobbs, where incredibly helpful staff picked just the right dress for Lesley’s colouring.
It was a classic case of not looking like much on the hanger, until the assistant added a gorgeous sparkling necklace. The Larissa dress in raspberry is priced at £139, teamed with the silver Aria necklace priced at £49.
We teamed the look with nude high heels from New Look which came in at £23.99.
For Emily, only sparkle would do, and we found just the ticket at Quiz.
A dazzling champagne jumpsuit, with a flattering tie waist and glamorous v neck.
It was also lined, meaning it fitted beautifully and was more than worth the price of £64.99.
Quiz also came up trumps with Rosemary’s outfit, a sleek satin dress with a hint of sparkle on the straps, priced at £54.99.
For Evelyn, we headed to M&S, and the only difficulty we had was in choosing an outfit because there were endless options.
After much debate, the winning number was a sheer cream blouse, simply yet oh so elegant, teamed with the most amazing blazer.
A beautiful shade of red and in sumptuous velvet material, it framed Evelyn’s petite figure. With ruched sleeves, it was £69. The blouse cost £29.50, quality pays off.
