Would anyone like to find me a dress please?

(25 Posts)

I need a dress for a day at Goodwood races and then for an ascot Ladles Day lunch which is nice frock and hat event.

Size 20 and ideally with sleeves. I have looked but nothing really grabs me. I have slim legs for my size so short rather than long.

Miserable rainy afternoon here so I'm sure some of you are bored! grin

Oh - and I'm an apple!

Per Una it is then! wink

Can't believe no-one's answered you. Unfortunately I am clueless on dresses as I never wear them, and also most MNers hate everything I like!
Good luck, hope somebody turns up soon!

What's your budget?

Colouring?

Any colours to avoid?

Something like this?

Oh thanks everyone! I got distracted this afternoon on the House of Fraser website and have ordered a few! Including that Nouse of Fraser one you linked - I quite like that one Justaweeine!

Never thought if Laura Ashely. Looked at La Redoute but nothing grabbed me and previous experience has not impressed tbh.

ththersend - colours - I'd prefer not black but one to anything, I'm a winter really. Budget? Generous! But don't tell DH!

Thanks tethersend. Not sure I'm keen on either of those - sorry.

Hadn't come across that website before - thanks for link. Looks interesting if expensive!

Ok, will try a different approach grin

Have just looked at all 33 pages of dresses on there. There are some horrors! grin

Would you do red?
