I have a summer ball that i will be attending on the 25th of june and i am without a dress. I dont want to spend huge amount on one because i will never wear it again and my oh so clever brainwave is to hopefully get a maxi and dress it up. So does anyone know of any fabulous places where i can get a maxi dress that will reach the floor, and pass for a ball dress?!?! (not asking much at all.....) Im 5ft 7 and have tried every planet maxi dress there is, no avail. boo hoo.

All help appreciated!!!

Some nice ones in Monsoon - look nicer in real life than web site though! Also saw a few online on that got good reviews.
