Right, so I'm going to sit down tonight and buy something fab online for me for Christmas, suggestions please!
After a couple of frustrating hours in my local town looking for "something nice to wear for Christmas" I've come home empty handed and exhausted. So after X factor its me and the lap top and my credit card for hopefully some successful shopping.
I'm not looing for a LBD, or anything too shimmery, but an outfit (preferaby a dress) that you could wear on Christmas eve/Day,a bit glam, not too short and preferably not sleeveless, as I do feel the cold!
So, Ladies please give me your best online shopping tips, websites where you always turn to in moments of desperation where you know you'll find what you're looking for!
I bought this one from Phase 8 yesterday in town. It comes in another colourway too and it took me ages to decide between them. It is VERY flattering on (I'm a 12) - the waist is beautifully structured.
I too feel the cold with sleevless dresses but this was sooooo fantastic I got a black half-sleeve bolero to go with - they also have them in bright colours which match the dresses but I preferred black. I thought this one would do me into spring and summer as well (alas I don't go out enough to justify more than one dressy dress!)
