Where do I look for some funky party / night out dresses. I was thinking just above knee and maybe in a colour other than black.

I am 32 and don't dress too old or young either. I have large norks but am a size 12.

Warehouse have got some lovely stuff in this year. I wear their stuff at 38! What sort of money were you looking to spend?

Loujalou Thu 25-Nov-10 09:01:46

Upto about £80 if I need to. Not sure DH will approve. But have seen this skirt from Reiss which is above budget and not a dress but looks fab. Forgot about Warehouse they do lovely stuff.

Liking this have olive skin so think I could get away with it....

This is nice.

and this.

I can't open that Warehouse link you posted - might be a problem at my end, not sure!

Loujalou Thu 25-Nov-10 09:29:44

The link works my end - its called emerald pleat dress. I like the one sleeve one but not sure if would work with my 32GG norks. Am 10 weeks pregnant and although still normal sized not sure how long this will last.....

Oasis have got this one but I am not sure with my norks....

notyummy Thu 25-Nov-10 09:43:56

Yes - have found the Warehouse one and had considered linking it for you!

I also like the Oasis one, but think it may not work with boobs - I have a tiny chest though, so not best placed to offer advice in that department!

Loujalou Thu 25-Nov-10 09:45:01

Thanks - the boobs annoy me but they are here to stay might have a look at bravissimo....

Loujalou Thu 25-Nov-10 09:46:14

This might work

Loujalou Thu 25-Nov-10 17:00:59

I think this might be too much but do like it.

notyummy Thu 25-Nov-10 17:46:10

Why too much Louja? I am loving the animal prints at the moment!

I have just bought a green pleat dress from warehouse and I am a 38F, think loos nice.

ASOS get new stuff daily and is free next day delivery and 20 percent off at mo.

Monsoon or Phase Eight do lovely dresses.

BelleDeChocChipCookieMonster Thu 25-Nov-10 17:54:51

I have this and it looks stunning! It's shimmery purple and an odd fabric that you don't have to iron.

Clure Thu 25-Nov-10 18:23:19

this is lovely if you can do one shoulder
vampy velvet

Loujalou Thu 25-Nov-10 18:40:40

I am not used to animal print but might be worth a try with some heels....

Need to look at laptop for other dresses as phone screen too small. Also nice green bravissimo dress with fab reviews and the green warehouse one. Maybe I need to try some dresses on.

Loujalou Fri 26-Nov-10 08:54:39

Now am on laptop I am loving the Laura Ashley dress though think it might be too much to spend at the moment.

I am also liking this one.

Thanks for all your suggestions I think I might go shopping....

BelleDeChocChipCookieMonster Fri 26-Nov-10 23:17:34

Mine was £82.50 in the 25% off weekend last week. They will have another one, it depends how quickly you need the dress.

Loujalou Sat 27-Nov-10 20:14:11

Tried this one on in Phase Eight and was quite taken. Its not black, its pretty and its above the knee. Think I might get it tomorrow and some nice tights.

Thanks - there is also 25% off which makes it affordable.

BelleDeChocChipCookieMonster Sun 28-Nov-10 11:20:18

Ohh, that's pretty. smile

Think I might get it although going to wear one of the dresses I have in my wardrobe for the do on Thursday.
