I'm (still) looking for a perfect dress to way to a smart evening party. I was going to go for a maxi-length but I'm finding midi/pencil/below knee length dresses more flattering.

I'd like it to have a halterneck or similar - something to show a little cleavage - and be uber uber glam!!!!

Not sure re colour... Maybe black... maybe shiny/sequin/jewels involved....Something very glitzy and gorgeous.

I'm v tall, ok figure on boobs/hips front but would prefer to conceal tummy area a little with some detail of some sort!

Please please help me! I'm going mad trying find on online!

If you're having trouble finding the right dress what about a pencil skirt and top? That way you can mix and match.

Kayleigh or Angelica?
Glam sophisticated then add lots of accessories?

Or Georgia from the sale section? They are very figure hugging and sexy on.

Reiss have a beautiful black, satin maxi pencil skirt at the moment. And plenty of glam tops, I like the lace ones.
