Well I think the title says it all really. I am going to a black tie charity dinner next saturday, I have nothing, don't really do dresses. I have less than £50 to spend. I am a size 20, 5'6", hour glass with pale skin and a chocolate brown bob.
Please help I have looked everywhere I can think of!

Too big and over budget but fab dress



Is this the one you meant, omydarlin? It's nice.

omydarlin that dress is fab. I have a big next localy so will go and have a look at it in rl tomorrow.
tether can't quite stretch to them but they are lovely.
Do you think I could get away with a high neck, I have quite a big bust, 38H so tend not to go for a high neck, maybe I should.

The ISME one didn't work at first, price is great, hadn't even thought of there.

you will need something to break up the expanse of colour ..statement necklace, with edge maybe as you dont usually do dresses, don't forget you can get stuff sent to store and it's free.

Yes tethersend that is the dress! God those Geri Halliwell look cheap and a bit 90s!

ohmydarlinI did and it was lovely but it just was not me, the colour just didn't suit me and they didn't have any of the black [boo]
I did get a dress though, from ebay, what do you think of this dress, I have some really nice hot pink floral shoes pink bag and jewellery.
