I need a dress, I have 2 weeks and absolutely 0 time to go shopping. It's for a wedding, evening only. I don't normally wear dresses. What I would like is something highish necked as I have a small chest, and on the knee or thereabouts as I don't like my knees, I don't want tight on the hips as I feel I may have big hips. I like green. Anyone??

Possibly like this but with colour ?

How about this

phase right very green

operationunkown Tue 27-Sep-16 20:36:06

look lovely if it's your style

operationunkown Tue 27-Sep-16 20:42:58

totally different style

rubbishshopper Tue 27-Sep-16 20:44:58

Oh yes I like that, thank you! It might be a bit low on front, not sure. Good price too! Was your second post supposed to be a link? Thanks so much for finding that one! What colour cardi/ shoes would go? I'm rubbishy at this

rubbishshopper Tue 27-Sep-16 20:46:08

Oh not so keen on the Asos one but thank you! I think it's too revealing at the front !

operationunkown Tue 27-Sep-16 20:49:10

Oh damn sorry it was a Karen Miller high low with a key cut in a similar green. I'll got and see if i can find to again.

Do you own any shoes, cardies, bags etc lots of colurs could work. what colour are you likely to wear again?

If probably go for black on the shoes,

OP I have this in a different colour and love it to bits: www.tedbaker.com/uk/Womens/Outlet/Clothing/NUHAD-Bow-dress-Dark-Green/p/125485-30-DARK-GREEN

rubbishshopper Tue 27-Sep-16 20:55:53

Thanks Ilove i love the shape of the top half but the skirt is too short for me, I don't like my knees!

Ilovetorrentialrain Tue 27-Sep-16 20:57:08

Ah damn sorry just seen out of stock - TB have some other lovely higher neck dresses though, think that's where I'd try first for this style.

rubbishshopper Tue 27-Sep-16 20:57:51

Operationunknown that's another lovely one.

operationunkown Tue 27-Sep-16 21:00:15

Love the ted baker.

Green id one of those colours op you can wear it with loads of different accesories (depending on the tone)

Gold and black tones look good
Nudes and browns Look good
Silver tones can look great.

I've got a friend that rocks a green dress tan shoes / accesories and leopard print bag and she look amazing.

Just seen JL do free returns! Might order both operation.

operationunkown Tue 27-Sep-16 21:08:10

Oh I'm a bad influence! I'd say go for it it's really hard to know exactly what you prefer without trying them on.

another option kind of like the ted one but different skirt and now at the back

Not a dress but a top and skirt (that someone else posted on another thread)

Not sure if skirt will be too straight for you but gives you more options than a dress. There is also a long sleeved top.

This is a good one from Lindy Bop.
What you'd save in price, you might like to put towards next day delivery as I think they're not the fastest.

pantsalive that lindybop one is great, exactly what the OP is looking for and a bargain!!
