I can't find the thread it was recommended on, but it was a gold sort of colour, had a silk top with a high waistd tweed skirt, very hourglass / va va voom sort of looking, was about £60 half price, and once it got recommened every bugger has gone and bought it! grin

any one can find it in sale thruogh3rd parties? I'm struggling and gutted.

I saw this years version in a pretty dusky blue in John Lewis if that's of any interest.

groak Sun 28-Aug-11 21:05:10

Tried john lewis, they don't have the gold one sad

The one in Reading did last week, might be going tomorrow, do you want me to look?

RollingInTheAisles Sun 28-Aug-11 21:33:27

Sorry, ignore me, not gold, blue.

groak Sun 28-Aug-11 21:36:01

Aw, RollingInTheAisles, you got my hopes well and truly up then!

But thankyou for the offer.

Have got to page 14 of google and losing will to live

What size do you want - I bought this with the jacket in the sale and never wore it!

Mumsnut Mon 29-Aug-11 17:17:20

Try Gray and osbourne on-line

Ah Groak, I was looking at the same dress adoringly but couldn't afford it. I actually promised myself I would buy it if it went below £50 but last time I looked it was still £84. I am size 16, just in case anyone sees one !!

groak Mon 29-Aug-11 21:00:08

ZZMum, think I'd be a comfy 18, a 16 breathiung in (whicj i would be prepared to do!) You're going to post that you're a 10, aren't you?

gray & osbourne don't have any

northumberland lass, i'll fight you all the way for a frock grin

Mumsnut Mon 29-Aug-11 21:04:08

They have 16 and 18 in the dusky pink.

Bohica Mon 29-Aug-11 21:09:40

I'll have a look for you, whilst I wait for ZZ to post back as a 10 so I can poach her dress grin

groak Mon 29-Aug-11 21:12:26

mumsnut, i'm not fussed about the blue or pin k, the gold seems to just have that extra vava- voom (and no fussy belt looking bit on it). as i have lost pretty much all my va-va-voom and am more ble-ble-bleurgh, i am worshipping this frock (worringly)

(and Bohica i'll feed you suet and water and sit you next to radiator and diet frantically to get ZZ's frock grin)

RipMacWinkle Mon 29-Aug-11 21:21:45

I remember that dress - it was on this thread but the link has gone now.

I do recall that dress was lovely.

Good luck OP

Damsel dress

RipMacWinkle.. you're just teasing with that post.

RipMacWinkle Mon 29-Aug-11 21:42:48

Sorry.....!!! I did hope that it might help.

<<slinks away>>

groak Mon 29-Aug-11 21:46:29

<sob> I'll never look like i'm in MadMen at this rate.

Will just pass as a madman instead, as I do on a daily basis.

Aplogies Rip, please slink back. It helps to remind me i should have bought the bloody thing when i first saw it grin

Bohica Mon 29-Aug-11 21:58:04

bishboschone Tue 30-Aug-11 15:50:35

ZZMum Tue 30-Aug-11 16:07:48
