I would love a denim dress but it must;

Not be short (knee ish length)
Quite like the flared style as opposed to tight fitting
Long sleeves or some type of sleeves would be nice
I like indigo denim

Any ideas where I could find one?

I just bought this. Looked lovely on.

willowstar there is no Sainsbury's near me, so will need to order online, or ask someone else to buy me one. How generous is the sizing? I am a small size 10, should I size down to 8 or stick with 10, do you think?

Also the Boakjen catalogue is next to me and a chambray dress is on the front. Overpriced, par for the course...

I have one several years old from New Look, tis lovely. They have this on the website if any good?

I've just seeen this, no sleeves but simular to the one you linked:

This one is nice but a bit light?

Or this, a bit light again but with sleeves?

I brought this oasis one today. It's fitted and then flares out and sits just on the knee. The colours at the bottom look much more subtle and flattering irl. I saw lots of people trying it on and they all looked great.

I have the sainsbury's one linked to earlier. I wear it for work and have had a couple of compliments on it. Very comfy and flattering n me.

Now that I like.

saw this in TKMaxx and it was lovely.

And if it has some sort of sleeves it would be better!

So it's really nothing like what I want then!!

Pinkflipflop Mon 01-Apr-13 20:54:44

this is exactly what I want except instead of it being fitted, I want it flared!!

I'm not hard to please at all!

Lots of lovely dresses there, but far too short!!

Wish I'd tried on the Debenhams one now. the Boden one is my favourite out of all these but it's sold out.

Remus that is lovely, wish I had the budget for that one.

I like the Whistles one.

I bought the Tu one for my Mum (trendy Mum) in Indigo. It is lovely and quite a generous fit. Quite fancied it myself!

Babyjaguar and racingheart just bought it today and I love it, very flattering and if you are quick they have 25% off at the moment so got it for £16.50. Took the belt off and put a tan leather one with it. Looks much better.

Quite like this one despite not usually liking much Boden stuff.

Pricey, possibly short, but I love this one:,en_GB,pd.html?color=423&utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=google_shopping&utm_content=98574-DE612D49-85CE-46A0-9869-5E2310D4D61B&kwd_id=98574-DE612D49-85CE-46A0-9869-5E2310D4D61B&gclid=CKKzzoOMqrYCFZDKtAodcBIA4Q

I saw a nice one in Debenhams (Jasper Conran) about six weeks ago but didn't have time to try it on. Very similar to what you describe.

racingheart Mon 01-Apr-13 19:12:27

yes, that's the one. It looked good on the hanger. Like a real 1970s dress. (I remember my mum's very trendy friend had one just like it.) Do you get lots of wear from it?

Babyjaguar Mon 01-Apr-13 19:03:46

hahahhaha I HAVE GOT IT

this is it?

racingheart Mon 01-Apr-13 19:02:40

I saw one in Sainsbury's just the other day. Was quite surprised. It looked nice enough. Knee length. not too tight.
