I'm off out to and oompa Austrian restaurant with a few good friends for my 40th birthday. I'm looking for a new dress and am in desperate need of help.
I am a size 12 -14 with curves and quite a large bust. I like to have a dress at least to my knees (not too difficult as I'm 5ft) I also would prefer to have my arms covered as I get cold. I don't mind showing a bit of clevage and like quirky, different stuff.I am often told how much younger I look than my years ( must be the fat pushing the wrinkles out) Oh, and I have pillar box red hair...any ideas? Budget up to around £70.

Pah! You know what though Karenthetoadslayer- my friends wouldn't bat an eye lid as that is what they would expect !

You see - this may be just the ticket! grin

I like the look of this one and it would look great with red hair. Perhaps not quirky enough?

Or how about one of the lovely vintage ones that people always post?

Hi Justinepants. I do like that but the neck line is wrong for me as I end up looking like a matron with a button up...I love the vintage stuff so will have a look. Thanks.

I was thinking of it quite unbuttoned wink
I had a quick look at vintage last night but got distracted. There are lots of people that know all those websites very well. Hopefully one of them will come along.
I was thinking of something floral but tight fitting.
