Hi, it's my 30th birthday in just over a weeks time. I'm looking for a dress to wear to my party but can't find anything I really like.
I suit rich colours, reds, plumb, navy etc. I have long brown hair and I'm 5 foot 6 and a size 12.
I like very femanin dresses and skirts and ones that don't cling to my backside. wink I would quite like it to be above knee length.
have any of you seen anything simillar that I might like?
Thanks. smile

How about this ?

Thank you, I'll have a look there too. I'm just trying to justify that dress at the moment. I could wear it to the work do as well, and christmas day! wink

That is nice, but I prefere the other one. I would, it's more expensive.

this ?

also like this one I don't work for Coast honest

They are both nice but I still prefere the first one from Coast.

What colour tights and shoes would I wear with it? smile

No tights and pewter heels? I have probably just outed myself as a the most unstylish mnetter ever

Depends on your legs. Could go with opaques and heels. Or nude fish nets are very flattering and can be worn with various colour shoes. Like the sound of pewter heels - could also wear dull silver/gold to pick up the metallic detail.

Thank you, sounds really nice. My legs are fine but a bit pale like the rest of me.

Have a great birthday whatever you wear smile
