I have a "do" at speakers house next week, and suggesting to find one suitable. Found this in my store, but not in my size sad

did you ask the shop to phone around to see if another had your size in? Or just phone each shop yourself?

lisad123 Wed 22-Jun-11 19:34:41

shop about 30 miles away has it, but struggle to get there. Its cheaper online too!! sad

Yes, what iwant said.

I saw this yesterday when I was looking for something else, it could be said to be vaguely similar.

lisad123 Wed 22-Jun-11 19:37:53

that is lovely and beutiful but way out of my price range!

the shop could phone other shops to see if they had one in your size - they may post it out to the shop near you.

Are any of the Debenhams concessions near you ?

Ok, more or less along the same lines (ish) , all under 35:

Beautiful colour, different but similar

too plain? Great cut and elegant

too short? Model is 5'10"

wrong sort of retro?

I love that first one, stunning!
The others aren't going to suit my body shape. I have huge boobs and fairly large hips with small waist.
I need something that goes in at the waist, v shape by boobs and length wise just above knee.

Yes, definitely my favourite too.

But, but, but, the Wallis one had a high neck confused

too gaudy?

maybe? Probably not

That pink pleated one is hard too beat for budget.

lisad123 Wed 22-Jun-11 21:16:43

Yes the wallis one is high neck but weirdly enough looked nice. Loving that pink one, but wondering if pleats might make me look larger. blush

Mmm, hard to say, could be all curve skimming but ten it could equally be a bit unruly IYWIM.

Fitted is safer. I'd risk ordering it to try on, but not with such a short time the event.

HettyAmaretti Wed 22-Jun-11 21:28:45

Oh, but I'm assuming you're short. If not go for it. Less chance of it getting unruly on a longer torso.

im a short arse grin
