Have a late October wedding to attend. Had set my heart on [http://www.collectif.co.uk/plain-delilah-jersey-crepe-dress-p-ss130707a-c-green.html this] but it's sold out sad! What the hell do I do? Can't see anything else I like! Please take mercy on me, has anyone seen anything vaguely similar?

Sorry proper link!

That dress is lovely, I want it now too! You could try ebay over the next few months in the hope it comes up, or if not www.phase-eight.co.uk/fcp/product/phase-eight//Winona-Crush-Dress/202272832

Otherwise maybe a local seamstress could make something similar?

Lilly love the colour and shape but hate the material!

Vivien of Holloway make 1950s style dresses, have you tried them?

Hatescolds Thu 22-Aug-13 21:07:35

not sure what size you are as this is limited but similar?

What about this?

RosieLig Thu 22-Aug-13 21:41:55

Why don't you go for the same dress but in a different colour? It's lovely and red is still in stock.

RosieLig Thu 22-Aug-13 21:43:04

Navy and black still in stock in some sizes...

OhTheDrama Thu 22-Aug-13 21:44:33

Really not a fan of red, scared it will be a bit overpowering! DH suggested the same thing!

Someone on here said its very flattering as 2 layers of jersey

I read your title as, 'Oh, crap wedding coming up' and thought, well wear any old shit, then!

Sorry, nothing constructive to add blush

Hows this?

I've posted this dress on here before but it is quite similar in shape to the one you liked. I wore it to a wedding and cannot recommend highly enough.

OhTheDrama Thu 22-Aug-13 21:56:29

Ah sorry to disappoint! Hopefully not a crap wedding coming up, it's a Friday one too, so had better be worth my days annual leave!

tethersend Thu 22-Aug-13 21:59:52

similar again

What size do you need?

OhTheDrama Thu 22-Aug-13 22:02:39

tethers Not too sure on that, will order anyway.
Ms23 Like that but not sure on the colours, would prefer green.

OhTheDrama Thu 22-Aug-13 22:03:35

Size 12, am 5"8' so have to be careful with lengths.

OhTheDrama Thu 22-Aug-13 22:06:17

WOW! Love the Maxmara one! Would I get away with black opaques and what should i wear as a cover up?

I love the MM one grin

And the length looks good for a taller woman.

tethersend Thu 22-Aug-13 22:11:16

Yy to black opaques.

this also nice

And there's currently an extra 20% off for the next 10 hours!
