I've lost my aunt and I can't focus on anything for more than a couple of minutes. I don't have anything remotely suitable for her funeral and would like to look nice/smart for her.

Can someone please help? £30-40 would be great.

Any clues about size/shape etc.?

Matalan has several styles of plain black dress - priced between £14 and £20.

What sort of thing do you prefer? Will you need sleeves, or do you have a jacket of some sort you are thinking of wearing?

I'm sorry for your loss... it sounds as if you were very close.

What size are you? Would you like to wear something black? Or something less formal?


Less formal lace

White trim

Less structured

If none of those are the style you like, let me know what you're not keen on and I'll look again smile

The DP one is great and a good price too. I know that it will sit in my wardrobe never to be worn again so I don't want to spend a fortune sad

half price

Really like the warehouse one too. Going for a walk, thank you so much, this is much easier. We were very close, I can't imagine what I will do without her.

Oh hagrid sad, so sorry - hope the walk helped.

Thanks Pip and thank you all for searching, I found a dark brown dress very similar to the warehouse one in the back of my sisters wardrobe so I think I'm all set assuming dark brown is ok?
