My oldest, dearest friends is getting married at the end of August. The marriage is taking place is in a very impressive venue and the reception is in a beautiful hotel which is quite....posh.
I am going crossed eyed looking at dresses but can't find one I love and would be comforable in. I'd be very grateful if you could all help me .
My wish list is as follows:
1. Size 18 . 2. No halter neck, the world is not ready for me in one of those. 3. Price range of up to £50, so not a lot (but might be able to go a bit higher for the perfect outfit). 4. It can't be lemon or anything really pale because I will look like death. 5. Something that will hide my stomach 6. Not short .
I'm 35 and 5'6" if that helps at all. Particularly in avoiding the 'mutton dressed as lamb' type of scenario.
I read your original post & was going to suggest the Verity Dress from Phase Eight, but someone has beaten me to it !! I have the verity dress & I adore it. I am 6th, size 16. It hangs beautifully & looks v elegant. I wore it to a black tie do last weekend & got lovely compliments all night
