Hi Please can I have some more fantastic advice from the style queens?
I want a new party dress. Ideally on or below the knee (fat knees) to suit size 10-12 pear, late 40s (so sleeves maybe?) and one that is quite plain so can be worn to several functions in the same month, accessorised differently. Nothing too grand. Definitely high street prices (under £60?)
Thank you. Love the John Lewis but already have a dress almost identical to that, which I wear far too often and is now two years old and looking a bit faded. The mango dress is the kind I can't wear - tight on the hips is lethal for pear shapes. Those prettydressco ones are beautiful but too dressy for works drinks etc, I think. Cos one is lovely but quite a lot over budget. Might try it on, and see if I could wear it loads. Are they just online?
Haven't tried Tesco. Will have a look, thanks.
I liked this but given how much S&B queens rant about the hideousness of M&S, I thought I'd better come on here for advice first. If it's hideous please explain.
Last time I followed advice on here I got more compliments in a week than I've had in five years. Think I've slipped back into mumsiness and need your advice again.
