The children are sorted, DH is sorted but I have nothing to wear and only 3 days to find something sad

I don't mind what style as long as it hides my tummy! blush

Need so much more info;

dress size? colour? maxi/on knee? do you have good arms? age?

McDreamy Tue 05-Jul-11 16:59:45

I'm 40, fair haired and skinned. Wouldn't want sleeveless and the shortest length would be just above the knee. Would consider maxi. Don't mind colour except yellow.

Oasis have got some really pretty dresses in their sale McDreamy - as have Debenhams (check out the wedding with glamorous SIL thread for some inspiration).

What is your price range?

McDreamy Tue 05-Jul-11 17:02:22

Maybe £100ish, less would be good!

FebreezeYourJeans Tue 05-Jul-11 17:03:43

OK nearly there, size?

McDreamy Tue 05-Jul-11 17:04:53

14/16 depending on the shop.

Then it has to be this phase 8 beauty again! Have been recommending to everyone, only because I have never seen my curvy size 16 sister look as beautiful and slim and elegant as when she wore this;

honestly it's divine

McDreamy Tue 05-Jul-11 17:47:20

But out of stock sad

FebreezeYourJeans Tue 05-Jul-11 18:52:00

Oh hell! That's happened as of today! Will look some more

Thank you! i could get used to this S&B thread grin

Phase eight has a lot of nice dresses in the sale and new season stock. Definitely worth a look there.

This one:

I have this one: which looks fab with a black bolero, fine mesh fishnets and heels.

Phase eight has nice shrugs / boleros but I got a plain black cotton knit one from New Look which was a lot cheaper and looks good.

Thank you - bought a Phase Eight dress - not in the sale though sad. Wedding was fab!
