Yellow dress for funeral

(18 Posts)

I have to attend a family funeral next week, the family have requested we wear bright colours (teenage boy - so sad). I'd like to wear yellow because of personal reasons relating to when I last saw my cousin. Has anyone seen any yellow dresses on the high street that are "appropriate" (used in the loosest sense as I appreciate yellow is not de rigueur for a funeral)?

I am on a budget so under £60 would be ideal. I'm 11 weeks pg so a bit bloated with it, apple shaped, normally a size 12, 5"4.

Just on asos at the mo. I didn't want to wear jersey - I'm still just about svelte enough not to need to. wink

I know it's a budget buster, but it's nice boden

So sorry to hear about your cousin.

Zara £46 (hopefully it is a bit lower down the leg on non-models)

this lemon one is nice, it looks a bit short, but the model is 5ft10!

NotAQueef Fri 05-Apr-13 14:14:07

Also maybe this one?

Thanks for all these suggestions - luckily my favourite is the Zara one (and not the Boden one!) so I will see if I can find it in town tomorrow. The shoulder pads worry me as I have coat hanger shoulders as it is, but we'll see. smile

I like the zara one too smile it's pretty easy to remove the shoulder pads in zara clothes.

yes, take the pads out.

Primark have some cute dresses in summer colours, and they aren't revealing or skimpy.

I cant do links-sorry-but Lady Vintage online have a lovely yellow floral tea dress-think it is £30. It is my new fave online shop after it was recommended on here.

Will pop to Primark this afternoon, thanks. smile

Some of those Lady Vintage dresses are gorgeous! Is the quality good? I found the one you're talking about and it is lovely but they only have it in stock in a 12, which normally would be fine but I'm wondering if it will be too constrictive in my current bloated state. Think I will see how I get on with more shift shapes for now.

I saw a Littlewoods one by Myleene watsit in a magazine today, it is yellow, crossover, v neck, £60. I actually quite liked it.

Sorry to read about your cousin though sad
