Is the Phase 8 Agy dress too partyish for work? I love drapey dressed but I'm worried that may be OTT for in the office.

This is mine. Does wonders for my non-existant waist grin.

QueenBOObread Tue 27-Nov-12 00:12:37

Ach. Can't get the picture thingy to work.

overmydeadbody your dress is beeeeyootiful! What's the sizing like, is it very clingy? Will it hide the 6lbs I need to lose?

QueenBOObread Tue 27-Nov-12 00:17:13

Last try!

FrogsgoLaDiLaDiLa Tue 27-Nov-12 01:09:16

I've just bought this. Hopefully with some sparkly accessories it'll take me from work to cocktails on a girly night out!

You can't go wrong with the Davina from LK Bennett - I have it in 3 different colours blush

Got this in Chester as a treat to myself for surviving a rubbish year! It's super figure hugging and the material and cut make it look super expensive. It reminds me of a Karen Millen dress but for a fraction of the price. Love it.

My picture vanished!

strictlycaballine Tue 27-Nov-12 08:36:46

BIWI Ok well I shall just call myself wobbly then grin

I'm PG though so will be more likely to be in something like this:

Some lovely dresses there. My pet hate at the moment is the panel dress.

I'm not going anywhere that requires wearing an LBD type dress this year, but if I were, I'd wear something like this with shiny leggings and and I already have some velvet high sandals in that colour with diamantés that would match.

Let's try that again:
