Party = evening drinks and buffet, in London, in June. Dress code = party wear, anything goes except trainers/sportswear.
I am blonde, fair-skinned, 5ft5, size 10, aged mid-30s. Recently slim again post-baby and need to wear something that looks fabulous but like I just threw it on!!
My best body bits are slim waist and nice (when in a bra! ) boobs! Not so good bits are legs (they are ok but not stunning) and bum - am a bit pear shaped.
I love the idea of a shift dress but not sure it's the most flattering for me given they tend not to flatter the waist and show off too much leg. Prom dresses, well they look a bit too much like I'm going to a prom! Maxi dresses look too beachy and also a bit too much like maternity dresses on me!
Ooh thanks. 1. LOVE the shape of the dress, perfect for me I think, but a little unsure about the print of the fabric though. 2. Lovely but I'd wear it to a wedding. 3. and 4. like them but not very me, a little OTT.
This is a dress I already own (bought 2 years ago and they have the cheek to describe it as "new" on their current website!) which is ok but not that flattering - doesn't go in enough at the waist and is a bit short on the leg showing too much orange peel thigh!
I love [[http://www.johnlewis.com/261803/Product.aspx this] although not sure the colour would suit me very well (blonde + yellow?).
Also this but I suspect it would look like a sack on me!
