officially obsessed - I want an LRD

that's a little red dress for any non-grazia readers wink

will i wear it? maybe not. That's not the point. As Veruca Salt would say (right before she fell into the rubbish chute) "Don't care how ... I want it NOW!!"

I have tried and failed on the following:



the second one did look good, I think, but I was put off by dh who said that it reminded him of school prom.

anyway, you get the idea of the kind of thing I want.

any ideas? I am 5'10", a size 8-10 and dark (olive skin, dark brown hair) Decent legs, bony shoulders (I like to show these off in the delusion hope that they make me look skinny all over. No bust to speak of. Long dangly arms.

help appreciated. Thanks

I love this but you might think it too OTT. Will you do strapless?

MaryMungo Fri 10-Dec-10 00:13:57

This is nice.

LetThemEatCake Fri 10-Dec-10 00:15:57

I'll happily do strapless but that big flappy thing on the asos would drive me bananas ewe

that is nice MaryMungo but I don't want maxi, want something slightly slapperish cocktail-y

nothing too demure!

MaryMungo Fri 10-Dec-10 00:17:29

Disregard that suggestion, missed nafftastic back sash shock

Too Studio54?

TrillianAstra Fri 10-Dec-10 00:40:38

AFAIK LRD is a MN poster called LittleRedDragon - and it would be a little creepy to say 'I want one' grin

Did you see this picture of Dannii ? Maybe a bit demure ?? -0C6AE701000005DC-201_306x630.jpg

LetThemEatCake Fri 10-Dec-10 10:15:26

Yes love the HH one - you can never be too studio 54 in my book!

the dannii one is a bit prommy, not really my style. She looks good though

GeorginaWorsley Fri 10-Dec-10 11:16:58

I have this and I love it!

iTigress Fri 10-Dec-10 20:13:23

Lipsy dresses are amazing quality, I have a one-shoulder dress from there and it's so flattering and well-made, they always have good underpinning. Red ones here
