Have a black tie do coming up. I have no black tie dress. Looked at the Designers at Debenhams range but nothing I like. I don't want to wear black (makes me look half dead). Any ideas on where to look for something lovely?

I used to lover River Island, also John Lewis, and have a look and see if you're got any small, independent local shops - used to live near one years ago that did fabulous stuff (sadly always closed years ago LOL)

Mosnsoon do do nice dresses but I always find if I wear one to an occasion, there's always someone else wearing it too! So I tend not to go there any more.

We do have a lovely boutique in town but it's more the Missoni end of the market and my budget won't stretch that far.

I'd like to pop up to London for the day, but need to do some "targetted shopping" ie know where I'm going to look beforehand so as not to waste time.

Lulupop - TKMax do fantastic designer evening wear at really good prices. They have the most gorgeous dresses, some really glamorous and some really plain but stylish. For the last 3 Christmases I have gone to my local TKMAx and they have a really good choice - my last dress was a no sleeves, fitted bodice, long flowing skirt, pearl coloured gorgoeous dress which was reduced from 139 quid to 25 quid. Try there if you have one local to you.
