I have a credit note for H&M and I need a new dress for a christening I am going to. If you had to pick a dress that they currently sell which would you go for if you were me?

How old are you? What's your dress size? Do you have any "role" to play in the christening godmother etc.?

The last one London suggested is lovely.

What's your shape/colouring, OP?

RandomMess Sat 22-Jun-13 19:57:45

How tall are you, what shape, what size, what style dresses suit you best?

TheReverseStitch Sat 22-Jun-13 19:58:55

Sorry, should have said I'm 5ft 4in, size 8-10, hourglass shape (good waist, but thick thighs) and 32 years old.

I have mid/dark brown hair, blue eyes, pale skin with some freckles. Usually pale and pasty but had a little sun recently so looking better than usual!

Thanks London, I love the last one in blue you linked to. None of my sizes left online though, but I think that sort of shape would be great.

What about this one www.hm.com/gb/product/13347?article=13347-A is it way too bright? It looks short in the picture but it would be longer on me than that model.

I think this is nice, if quite simple, and can be dressed up with nice shoes, accessories etc.

I think that one is too formal for day time.

MrsLettuce Sat 22-Jun-13 20:22:42

Your last one is great Reverse. It is simple, but in agood way.

LondonBus Sat 22-Jun-13 20:23:23

Sorry I meant the first of ManAlives links.

I've already linked to the other one.

LondonBus Sat 22-Jun-13 20:24:46

TheReverseStitch, that one is really, really nice, and you could wear it on a night out.

It does look short on the model, but I'm guessing she's taller than you.

MrsLettuce Sat 22-Jun-13 20:26:42

grey shoes and, ideally, a grey snake print clutch.

TheReverseStitch Sat 22-Jun-13 20:30:38

London You don't think it is too much for a church christening? I want one I can wear again really and I think this could.

That model is bound to be taller than me, all models must be taller than 5ft4 I think.

ManAlive I like that green one but I fear my waist would be lost and I think that is probably my best bit IYSWIM.

When is the christening? I wouldn't pick anything unless I had a two month lead time as in my experience they can be incredibly slow to deliver!

TheReverseStitch Sat 22-Jun-13 20:43:16

It is 4 weeks away, surely they would deliver in that time?

MrsLettuce Sat 22-Jun-13 20:44:40

They'd be good with that, yes! Clicked back to the wrong dress whrn looking for a bag though - was looking at the turquoise when I said snake print. Would be awful with the lovely print one.

I really don;t think it's too much for a christening. You'll need to cover your arms in church but that's easy done.

MrsLettuce Sat 22-Jun-13 20:46:46

oh, sorry, meant to say a grey (or maybe green) wrap and white bag would be perfect.
