I can only guess that the person who invited the OP has a completely bogan red-neck family with no clue whatsoever about what's considered appropriate for a christening. It's just too bizarre!! If I held a christening I'd just be happy that anyone turned up!!
It's so varied. Smart casual to me means a nice pair of jeans, nice shoes and nice top and swish handbag and that I would wear to a christening.
nothing too plunging or booby for church either. that first maxi is stunning (in the pics posted above) but I'd feel a bit "on show" wearing it to church.
Thank you ladies for your responses. It has seriously confused me....I actually asked the person earlier who requested the "dress code" what they would want me to wear and not to wear.
Black is bad apparently....my wardrobe consists of mostly black.
Now I'm not a big spender on clothing....I'm quiet plain and just shop at tempt or valley girl. So once I get my answer I'll go and look for something.
(Please don't judge on where I shop) they have nice clothes.
Seriously just wear what the hell you want, even black. Just watch there will be quite a few ppl in black.
Oh I've been in your situation before with people telling me specifically what I can and can't wear, it's so annoying!
I really feel for you. If it's causing you stress don't be afraid to just rsvp no. I've done that before when I was told I couldn't wear anything I own and I should buy something new. Like you I'm not really into clothes and I don't see the point in buying something to only wear once. If people really want your company they won't care what you wear.
Can I just ask what you would wear to dinner with friends? Just wear that tbh. Even if there is black in the outfit it would not be a big deal. If shopping especially for something is stressing you out - then don't worry about it and go with what you have.
OP, find something comfy that you will wear again, team it with nice sandals and you will be fine.
