I feel like I have looked at every dress in the world and I cant find one I like.

DSIS is getting married in a very posh venue but its a small wedding party around 50 - 60.

I will have my DS's with me so will be running around like a loon a lot of the day.

DH is wearing a grey checked with red and blue tweed suit sounds awful but very dapper. DS' are in red and navy cords with shirts and converse.

I am very aware that DH and the boys outfits are fairly colourful and dont want to necessarily be matchy with them as it may look overly twee.

Oh and I am a size 10 sometimes 12 with good legs and small boobs. I have blonde shoulder length hair and pale corned beef celtic skin.

Heeelp in the style of Penelope Pitstop.

what style do you have in mind?

Do you like either of these in the Hobbs sale? I think both are lovely, especially the blue.

Not keen on that hobbs one dancelot its very similar to the one my mum is wearing

These are the sort of things I have been looking at

Well you definately don't want to be dressed similar to your Mum! I love the last Coast one you linked to, why did you decide against that one? Maybe look at the Hobbs Luna dress on their website, as I can't seem to link to it.

Beans36 Sun 11-Nov-12 22:26:34

I like this one... And think the colour would be nice on you, Celtic skin and all!

Beans36 Sun 11-Nov-12 22:28:44

And love this one. Mmmm.

SummerLightning Sun 11-Nov-12 22:29:02

Erm. How about this

what's not quite right about the ones you link?

SummerLightning Sun 11-Nov-12 22:30:09

Actually all saints have quite a lot that look similar style to the ones you link

SummerLightning Sun 11-Nov-12 22:35:14

Saw this in sunday times today and liked the look of it, but it looks a bit minging on the model and a bit too short for my liking, but thought I would link anyway.

SummerLightning Sun 11-Nov-12 22:38:40

OOh I like

Bit £££ though

Beans36 Sun 11-Nov-12 22:40:22

And this mmm

Beans36 Sun 11-Nov-12 22:42:21

And unexpectedly like this bugger
Thank you and good night x

Beans36 Sun 11-Nov-12 22:42:52

Suspect am showing up my squareness!!

SummerLightning Sun 11-Nov-12 22:44:57

Here's the hobbs lunar at house of fraser, unforutnately out of stock there and at hobbs in your size though maybe elsewhere if you like.

JamInMyWellies Sun 11-Nov-12 22:47:11

Thanks girls do like that lk one beans and the all saints Marylin.

Think I am nervous of going down the mumsy route or the mutton as lamb. Trying to find an inbetween that I like us driving me bonkers.

An going to order the coast one and a couple more and will report back.

SummerLightning Sun 11-Nov-12 22:52:27

Just seen the whistles link didn't work, it's the first one on the second row I was looking at.

Rubena Mon 12-Nov-12 12:37:52

I think my Fav is the Hobbs Luna Blue, All Saints Marylin, the LK Bennet Red one and the Jules one in that order.
Don't like dresses with a tulip skirt as I always think they make people look big in the rear (well me anyway) I quite like that Monsoon one but I'd be nervous someone else would show up in it hmm The Nuala one is really nice too actually.
Anywho, I'm clearly no Vivienne Westwood, so go with what you feel most comfortable in I say (unless its shoes, then just go with the most fabulous ones which go with the dress grin

Actually I really love the Warehouse one. Elegant, and would look knockout on the tall/good legs contingent such as yourself!

Rubena Wed 14-Nov-12 14:21:01

I like this (bit spendy) dress too.

Rubena Wed 14-Nov-12 14:25:01

Link won't work.

In a rush so no tine to look but I am similar size to you and love Reiss dresses, although not seen current collection. Good luck!
