This is on 5 April. I bought a French Connection dress back in January but now it's still so cold I'm worried I'm going to freeze!

I like this as a standby - can anyone find a high street version please?

Lol at freezing! DH goes to the full meeting every year, his reports on the Ladies Day attire run to immense respect to the gals wearing very little in adverse weather...

Any ideas on the dress?

Looks like there's room for thermals under the red dress. The black one looks much chillier confused

I do love that black one though plus you could wear opaques with it.

Good idea about the thermals though!

Im a dressmaker and currently have numerous alterations for dresses that have been bought online for ladies day, I currently have bets on some of them with my dp on how many times they will be featured in the daily mail. grin

Sorry no help at all to your problem but just thought you would love to know theres no chance of you being featured in either of those dreses as they are both lovely, especially with some of the amazing uses of fabric i have here waiting to be altered. Wish i could take some pics and make your day but that wouldnt be very professional of me now would it hmm

Reviving my thread to ask for suggestions on what I could wear with the red dress above given it will probably still be sub-zero temperatures on Friday...
