School run dress/ PTA dress...you know you have them
Got the cocoon dress it is really easy to wear but did not like the gold coloured Zip at the back, but the simplicity of the style made it look really quite luxurious. I have worn it with ballet pumps and DMs so really flexible dress. Buy
Silvercharm I'm a pear shape and ordered that dress, and I thought it flattered my figure. However I decided to exchange it for this one, as it's a bit longer and I'm self conscious about my lower thigh too. The downside is that it doesn't come in as many beautiful colours as MissBeehiving's dress
I think that LaRedoute have some nice stuff in this year, I got a a great cashmere sweater which looks shit in the picture but actually is lovely for about £20 after I used a discount code. And it was delivered in less than 6 months <falls over> although I'm STILL WAITING for a navy lace skirt <shakes fist at LR delivery>
Trousers don't even fit me, let alone suit me. Stupid short legs
MissBeehiving I'm 5'4 and the dress comes to about an inch or so above my knee. I also ordered this, (yes, I got carried away!!) which is the best length for me (just above the knee) and the button detail on the sleeves is really lovely. But clings, rather than skims, my tummy. So yes, the elastic is the most flattering
