Come vote for a Christmas party dress...

...for my work Christmas party and possibly also a glammed up Christmas day.


A bit old I wonder?

I could wear this lots but how do I dress it up for a party?

Not quite dressy enough but could be very versatile?

Love the shape of this but unsure about material/colour

Spenny but is it worth investing in a classic?

Why did Kate have to get there first?

Lovely but hopelessly out of my price range

Other suggestions welcome!

Can you see how decisive I am? grin

I'm 33, 5ft 2, hourglass size 10 but with 32F boobs, decent legs and a mum-tum (but Spanx will be deployed). Olive-y skin with mid-brown hair in a bob. I don't really know much about colour except that navy suits me much better than black.

I like the second one I think it is very Breakfast at Tiffany's not old at all.

Belles one is better though, you couldn't fail to look stunning and sophisticated in that.

I think the Moschino would look amazing, I find D&G dresses just don't have the room up top and I am not as generously endowed as you.

The Tibi one is stunning too & I think if it was me I would get more wear out of that one.

The Matthew Williamson one is lovely though.

my faves are the layla and issa ones

The Anglomania one. I really want it myself, so after you've worn it, you could donate?? To me of course wink

I vote for mine. It really does look so much better on. If I was brave enough I'd stick mine on, take a picture and put it on my profile so you could see for yourself.

I like them all. Personally I would go for the sequinny one, the red one or the Project D one (which I think you would wear for ages, and it's a bit shorter than the Dolce and Gabanna one so might work better on your height).

I'd glam the red one up with perhaps some chandelier earrings and metallic shoes.

I think you'd have the most fun in the Tibi one though.
