Here is me as of Thanksgiving (I may even be a few pounds lighter since I've been biking my ass off since it was taken):
What I need: something formal, not a dress - I'm not ready for that quite yet. I might consider a longish skirt. I dress rather modestly so nothing really revealing but I'm somewhat open on that. I don't like sleeveless things (and I have tattoos that need to be covered for the event).
So, TQC, what kind of outfit can you put together for me that you think would look good? Examples are fine, I'm sure I could find something similar at any online or brick and mortar store.
