as it seems to be sold out everywhere! i tried it on in a size 16 ages ago and it looked lovely so i thought i would wait for the sales - big mistake as i cant find it anywhere! it is on the House of Fraser website as being reduced from £70 to £45, someone is trying to sell it on ebay for £100 as it is so popular - i aint that daft mate!

any guidance would be appreciated o wise women of MN!

John Lewis and Debenhams both have Warehouse franchises? Might be worth a try?

I don't fancy your chances much I'm afraid. It was in their late Summer collection. I know this because I did the make up for the picture of it on the Warehouse website back in the middle of June. I really wanted the dress but was a bit skint at the time and decided to wait until the sales to get one myself and just managed to get the last one in my size by the skin of my teeth, which was slightly damaged but I bought it anyway as it was the last one and the damage was easily fixed, but this was back in October so the chances of more than the odd one in a less popular size being in this sale is fairly slim, sadly.

The best chance I'd say you'd have is phoning Warehouse and asking them to check on their computer if any other branches have it in stock, although this can be pretty hit and miss in the sales. Or you could try branches in smaller towns/villages. Designer influenced (in this case, Vivienne Westwood) sell out fast in very busy cities but may not do so in less populated areas.

Wow thanks for that info Kittens. I was the same in that i was skint and couldnt afford £70 for a dress. I will phone Warehouse and see if i can get it.

Many thanks again! And to everyone else

Jesus! I've got one, worn it once to a wedding. Should I be selling it?

It is in the size OP wanted but I don't want to break site rules. I will pay the joining fee and list it on the sales part if you guys think it's worth it?
