Just that really. I'm 5'6" and a size 20 at the moment. Dresses and skirts need to be below the knee and sadly I'm a barrel shape! I have a black midi skirt, quite flowy, so could wear that. I like neural colours - blacks and greys - and would be happy dressing up something plain with a fab statement necklace or something. Anyone seen anything fab?? I'm looking online and plus size stuff is few and far between!

What's your colouring? Budget?

this is rather lovely

BallerinaZeena Sun 28-Apr-13 12:25:29

I've seen that and it's fab - not sure I have the confidence though! smile I have dark hair, pale rosy skin and I'd spend up to £100 ish

too pretty-pretty?
fab with red accessories
too lacy?
sleeveless but a good shape, same in another colour
very flattering style, excellent at giving shape where little is apparent in other stuff

How old are you?

Ah, x posts!

IMlongandvariedE confidence faked leads to real confidence.

oh, forgot to link to these for under that last dress.

Ooh I quite like the house of Fraser spot dress! Thanks. I'm 31.

Do you think I could wear a black cardy with the spot dress??

MrsLettuce Sun 28-Apr-13 14:46:20

I love that one too. A cardy would be fine but it would need to be close fitting and preferably cropped. A wee tailored jacket would be amazing, maybe along the lines of this?.
