Here's the lowdown:

I'm 5'7" - slim (8-10) but apple-shaped with smallish boobs and no arse.

I'm very fair/ white with brown hair and grey eyes.

I have a budget of £300. I'm quite conservative and not confident enough for anything too fashionable. I'm also rubbish in heels that are more than 2" high.

Please inspire me, I don't know where to start as I never buy anything glam for myself smile

Soft colour with sheen and structure. All saints £198

layered green, Ted Baker £279

Karen Millen shift, £210

Lk Bennett £275, delicate colours

Good luck smile

Oooh, I'm so glad I posted, there are lots of things I wouldn't have considered.

I like them all but I really love the All saints dress and the DvF one, I don't know what to order first...

Thanks lettuce, I especially like the sequiny ones. Have you bought stuff from Nordstrom? Is it easy/ inexpensive to return internationally?
