the first one isn't too fited, as is size 14 I was bit tight in my chest in size 12 now bit lose on the bottom. the second one is 12- lovely and shows the curves etc but bit long and got the feeling bit too much for an office meeting???

Links still don't work on iPhone so I'll take an educated guess.
Go for the Warehouse dress as Ted Baker usually only work on size 6/8.

oh so it works now smile thanks thats what I think..but still like the second one too....

I tried on the second one and decided it wasn't Christmas partyish enough, also thought it looked a bit cheap, but the shape was very flattering. Can't see the ted baker one.

Both look lovely... from your post it sounds like you sound more comfortable in the second. Could you dress it up with some jewellery/ shoes to make it more partyish?

Ilovecrossfit Thu 22-Nov-12 13:43:56

I think its going to be the first one smile
Trixymalxy i didnt think it looked cheap I quite like it, the fabric is nice and thick so not see through smile

I prefer the second one! The shape is lovely, and the lace subtle.
