its for 2nd Feb.

i do have a LBD that i could wear from next but ive worn it before for the same sort of do, with the same people (though it was years ago and i doubt they remember!) its an empire line black georgette type thing - looks a bit like a negligee but is actually rather nice!

i have a purple bustier and pencil skirt (but would require a fake tan)

i am a size 14. ( a small 14 or large 12) and im 40.
i would be willing to buy a new dress for this if anyone has any suggestions. Im a C cup boobs, slightly pear shaped, slim legs.

any ideas please? nothing to outlandish for budget but anything considered!
thanks

Have a look at Roman Originals. Not somewhere I wouldn normally shop but I got a lovely long black evening dress from there recently for about £30. They had lots of lovely evening dresses.

ok looking at the sizes of those vintage dresses i think they seem to be for hourglass shapes - im not. if it fit me on the waist it would be huge on the boobs.

so im still looking - thanks ladies for the suggestions - im still leafing through them!
