Have been trying to help my friend find a party dress for next weekend without much luck, and was hoping the fashionistas on S&B might be able to find something.

Her DH lost his job last year so they're pretty skint so budget is £40ish so I know its a bit of a challenge, although I can probably sort shoes and accessories.

She's a bit like Nigella - hourglass, dark hair, pale skin, size 14-16 and 5'5" - but she won't wear anything too short as she's late 30s so not much above the knee.

Thanks [pleading] smile

I'm an hourglass myself. What about this.
Or this?
A little over budget here ,and this has got good reviews.
Hope they help.

I'd suggest Vivien of Holloway but that's over budget.

Thanks have mailed a link to this thread - and have accidentally ordered the green dress that tethers linked to for me grin

Bollocks, if you're my size it's your fault it's sold out now grin

I sound absolutely identical to your friend. In fact, had to check it wasn't me! The first one whoopsidaisy found would be lovely.
