Picked up my dress yesterday for tonight's Valentine party.

I go salsa jiving with dp and they often have party nights. Tonight's theme is obviously Valentines night and the suggestion is wear something red. I don't have a red dress even though I do love to wear red, usually tops or scarves. Also have a red coat and hat.
So I ordered one online from HoF, to pick up in my home town. Meant I could visit some of my favourite shops and my mam too.
Picked the dress up and took it to mam's and tried it on there. It's absolutely gorgeous, better than I'd expected tbh. I bought it as it looks flattering in the pic and hoped it'd be easy to dance in? It's both. The quality is amazing for the price. I know it was originally £75, more than I'd normally pay for a dress. The colour is the sort of red that'll look good in warmer weather too.

Here's the dress. They had so many to choose from too. I found another one reduced from over £130 to £40 that was lovely too. But found that after I'd ordered this one.

A nice surprise was the box with a handle that it came in. I usually try on and buy in store so haven't had this. Felt rather posh grin.

That's beautiful. Do you mind me asking what size you are? I'd like a dress like that but I am a bit fat

What a lovely dress! I hope you had a nice evening.

I'm a bit overweight too Selba, size 14. Everyone said it looked lovely though. Although someone's tagged me in a pic on FB, I'm sitting down and look pg!! It's the way I'm sitting though but I do have a bit of a tum.

Thanks JMU, I had a fab evening but got too pissed blush The mistake I made was drinking wine. I'm out tonight too but will stay on soft drinks.

Thanks Selba. The dress is stretchy, always a good thing for us curvy women wink I'd definitely recommend buying it. HoF have some fantastic clothes in. I'm not a keen shopper but do like it in there.

I'm a hopeless shopper!
