Help! Find me a dress......

If anyone is inclined that is - I could do with some direction for a nice dress for a wedding. It isn't really posh but I have nothing to wear currently. Don't want to spend much really but say up to £80 at a push.

I am tall and slim, size 8-10. It needs to go with flats as never wear heels. Prefer some sort of sleeve to no sleeve but prepared to go without but no way to strapless. I don't really suit low necks so nothing plunging!

Any help or direction gratefully received. I am scouring the internet to no avail. Are maxi dresses still OK do you think?

Actually have seen a couple of printed jersey dresses in White Stuff I like but do you think they might be too casual for a wedding?

Fifitot saw this dress and thought it was so beautiful. It is very pricey but if u like this kind of thing lmk and i'll happily trawl the web for you. But this dress would be great with a ballet flat or glam glads

Thanks so much Shukki. I loooooooooooove the first one, the high neckline is lovely and I have a dress a bit like that already. Not sure about the colour though and still a bit dubious about a maxi for a wedding. What do you think?

The second is nice but a bit fussy for me.

I like blues, greys, greens mainly. Don't suit yellow, red sort of stuff. I suppose my style is classicish with a twist maybe....like Jigsaw stuff sometimes.

If I had the cash would maybe get that first one!

Lovely but far too short for me! Am liking vintagey stuff.

Have seen a link to Laura Ashley on this part of board and they have some nice stuff there suprisingly. So will have a mooch round there too.

I appreciate your help.
