Where should I look?

Karen Millennium and Coast are my usual go to shops but I feel a bit stuck in a rut. The dress has to be v formal and on or below the knee button be low cut or bandeau.

I'm blonde, pink skintones and 5'2. smile

I disagree, pepperberry are very long. I'm 5'2" and they reach mid calf on me which isn't very flattering. Have you tried hobbs? Depends how old you are of course, but they have a nice range called nw3.

Pepperberry isn't formal enough enough for what I need. I'll have a look at Hobbs.
