Engagement pics...

What to wear? What to wear?.... E-pics are in a week in an half.

That is my question!!!!! I'm confused, jeans, dress, heel no heels? Anyway...going shopping after work...I'm actually a plus size personCry so I just think everything looks bad on me. I think I make things worse...but I have to chuck through it. We decided to take the pics at City Walk @ night. So what do you ladies think would be a good choice to wear?

    I was in the same boat as confused as to what to wear.  I figured this was a pretty special occasion so I saved up some money and allowed myself to buy a few nice things.  I went to Bloomingdales and told one of the sales girls there what I was shopping for and she really helped me out.  I ended up going with two outfits - a jeans and white top and then a red dress.  My FI also bought a few new things to wear.  I couldn't have done it without some professional help.  Good luck!

    I did both - a dress and heels and a sweater and jeans.  Most people seem to do a casual and dressy outfit.  But, that's not a rule.  If you find one great thing that makes you feel gorgeous, just stick with that outfit.  The most important thing is to buy something that makes you feel beautiful.

    Go with what you feel best wearing.  I think I look best in a dress and heels, so I wore 2 dresses for mine.

    Lady, go with what you two feel comfy in. I hardly EVER wear dresses, so a dress was out of the queston. I wore jeans, a,nd just changed from Flats to Chucks, and from a shirt with a blazer jacket & pearls to just a plain every day picture =0)

    Now, for CityWalk, I can see like a nightlife theme, maybe? Maybe a black dress, with color accessories to make it POP =) Or, you can always wear some Jeans & heels =0) Dont stress over it! i am sure Nat is going to make you two look Ultra Fab!

    You definitely don't want to feel awkward in whatever you are wearing so make sure it's something you are comfortable in.  I don't know your style but Forever 21 now has plus size clothing and they have super cute stuff from casual to dressy also have a ton of accessories to choose from  and if you tell them there what you are looking for 9 times out of 10 they will help you out with a good outfit that you feel comfortable in.  btw Charlotte Russe has braceletes and earrings 2 for $8 if you end up wearing costume jewelry versus classic/simple pearls or something.
    Just remember to not stress about it.  It's supposed to be a really fun time.
