Christening is next month.
I need to look good!
I would like a dress please!
I would also like to wear nude heels I think.

I am 5 foot 5 and have similar hair to Alex Jones
34 DD norks and hourglass figure with a bit of a bloaty tummy. Control pants will fix that.

I am most likely an autumn.
I like navy, teal, raspberry.
I also like patterns.
I have about £50 for a frock.

On a budget ladies!

'ello prolific I'm rubbish with suggestions but wanted to bump this for you smile

prolificwillybreeder Thu 22-Sep-11 19:46:55

Thanks Pinot! How are you?
Evening bump.
Come on ladies, you are always so good at this for other people!
I need a frock please.
Am -29- mid twenties and my legs look ok to be out on show.

This is probably useless as it is way over budget but I saw this in the shop the other day and thought it looked lovely.

This in blue


Over budget

prolificwillybreeder Fri 23-Sep-11 08:11:38

Thanks all.
I think if I go up to £100 would that help ladies?

prolificwillybreeder Fri 23-Sep-11 10:21:17

Ok what about this?
Nips in at waist
With cream cardie and nude heels

navy dress

tethersend Fri 23-Sep-11 11:44:44

I HATE that dress, sorry. It's too shapeless.

What size are you?

How about:

Ooh that Megan dress (first link in tethers 11:44 post) is great as the swishy fabric would disguise the tummy. Lovely colour too. Nude heels.

The verity dress (3rd link) is gorgeous too. Very classy.

prolificwillybreeder Fri 23-Sep-11 11:59:39

You know I did have a thought it maybe shapeless.

I quite like the first one. Tbh red scares me!

I'm a ten, hourglass with DD norks.

prolificwillybreeder Fri 23-Sep-11 12:01:30

The third is lovely I agree Pinot just the colour sadly would drain me sad
Oh dress shopping is so hard!
I either feel like I'm going to a school prom or I have borrowed my mother's dress.

prolificwillybreeder Fri 23-Sep-11 12:03:04

The tummy is less of a problem since having this horrid coldy/sicky virus. It appears I have lost weight!

prolificwillybreeder Fri 23-Sep-11 12:04:27

I could totally tell dp that the first £88 dress was ever so cheap ;)

Pinot Fri 23-Sep-11 12:04:28

I think you should embrace red - it's such an empowering colour. And as a size 10 you'll knock it out of the park!

prolificwillybreeder Fri 23-Sep-11 12:04:51

wink even!

tethersend Fri 23-Sep-11 12:06:21

Tesco have a very similar style one

prolificwillybreeder Fri 23-Sep-11 12:06:25

I just wish I could but I'll just look uncomfortable and I'll stand out sad so annoying. If it wasn't for my boys christening I probably would.

prolificwillybreeder Fri 23-Sep-11 12:09:30

Tethersend- you little star! I am most definitely checking that baby out!
I'm kind of pale olive. That ok do you think?

Pinot Fri 23-Sep-11 12:12:34

Oh that tesco one is great!

tethersend Fri 23-Sep-11 12:12:46

Would look lovely.

Tesco have some fab dresses at the mo

MrsMilton Fri 23-Sep-11 12:16:59

That Phase Eight Megan dress is gorgeous. I've tried it on and it's really flattering, especially over a less than perfect tummy. My only worry was that it was a bit scratchy. Lovely colour though.

prolificwillybreeder Fri 23-Sep-11 12:25:59

do we like this? I now want a lot of Tesco dresses!

prolificwillybreeder Fri 23-Sep-11 12:27:05

Oh it won't work!

prolificwillybreeder Fri 23-Sep-11 12:27:55

I'm not sure now I look at again anyhow!
