Could anyone help me find a dress?

We are going to Vegas for my friends wedding. I'm 5ft 7 size 12/14. I've got good legs and arms, OK boobs but not a great belly. I usually like fit and flare, skater style dresses.

I was thinking of a green halter neck (but not a vintage style) and had planned on wearing my nude louboutins.

I'm not keen on phase right as they are s bit long - would prefer a bit shorter (but not ass skimming) .

My budget is up to 200 quid (ish) - any suggestions would be greatly recieved!!

Phase right = phase eight!

too long and not green enough?
the jade version of this? over budget
maybe? Only a 12. Not strictly halter neck but the right shape no less, I think

Oh I like the green Michael kors one - I'm going to have to see if I can find better photos of that one!

Just reading the other thread about tulle skirts too- I'm loving them too!

Yes those are nice. ASOS have a green midi one that looks good but I've not happened across any shorter ones.

There isn;t actually a lot of green about at all ATM.

My go to colour is red - but the last two weddings I've wore a red dress so wanted something different! I pale skinned and blonde so don't really suit yellow/orange, I'm not really a pastel colour fan and I don't want black. Obviously not white either- I'm a bit stuck!

orange?
Oooh, look what I just stumbled across!

Inspired by another thread I've bought this tulle skirt m.asos.com/mt/www.asos.com/Little-Mistress/Little-Mistress-Mini-Tulle-Skirt/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=6118445&istCompanyId=6f061ed0-7427-4b6c-bb90-987c0bd08468&istItemId=qllllairx&istBid=tztx&affid=14179&channelref=product+search&utm_source=google&utm_medium=ppc&utm_term=38519461617&utm_content=&utm_campaign=&cvosrc=ppc.google.38519461617&network=g&mobile=1&search=1&content=&creative=53983301781&ptid=38519461617&adposition=1o7&r=2&mk=ab&gclid=CMz25bGv9cwCFdYV0wodet4Fcw&un_jtt_application_platform=newPlp&un_jtt_redirect and am going to try it with a red top. I've no idea if I will look ridiculous (in 38!) but I'm going home today via an oasis to try that green dress Mrs lettuce. Love love the colour just concerned that I might just look fat as it's not fitted.

Sorry for that ridiculously long link!

So the tulle skirt came - and my illusions of looking glam and fab in it are shattered. I look like an old fat fairy . I've got a selection of dresses coming from Very - and the green oasis one, so fingers crossed ....

Isn't green bad luck at weddings ? My mother wore it to mine. Not with groom and don't talk to her 13 years later 😂
