Can anyone be bothered to find me a dress?

Because I can't.

I've had enough of searching, what I want doesn't seem to exist unless I sell a kidney or a child to pay for it. I haven't ruled these options out.

I want a maxi dress. Easy, right? BOLLOCKS. I want one with sleeves. At least elbow length sleeves. Not short short sleeves.

A wrap one would be ideal.

A shirt one would be great.

Anything with sleeves really.

In a 16.

Under £70 preferably.

If you can help, please take pity on me. But please don't suggest a shrug or a cardi, as it may push me over the edge.

How about the Blake dress from Baukjen. Sorry cant do a link but it does have the sleeves you're looking for. There are others you might like on the website too. It's a bit more than you were hoping to pay (£109) but you often see discounts and at least you wouldn't be paying more for a shrug grin

best fit for the breif

tethersend Thu 23-May-13 21:04:04

Thanks both- I quite like the Baukjen one, but should've said, I don't want black.

I'm not keen on the simply be ones either, sorry- the first is a bit shapeless and red looks shite on me, the second's not too bad but a bit cheap looking and the third is a vision of hell only Zandra Rhodes could possibly create grin

tethersend Thu 23-May-13 21:06:19

Ooh, more, will have a look Morticia, thanks smile

Not giving up without a fight

What about this? www.laredoute.co.uk/anne-weyburn-softly-draping-printed-crepe-dress.htm?ProductId=324382945&t=1

Ok, first is a bit clingy- sorry, should've said I don't want bodycon. Second is ok and third is too, but I don't think they are worth the price...

Having a problem opening links (it's me) so sorry if these have been linked already

too short?
probably too black. (am craving it)

MortifiedAdams Thu 23-May-13 21:20:28

multicoloured

MrsLettuce Thu 23-May-13 21:20:58

maybe in store?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Thu 23-May-13 21:31:31

Still looking? Is it for day or evening?

Am I allowed to ask if you could just whack one of your biker jackets on top?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Thu 23-May-13 21:32:17

Ooh Mrs L - can just picture Tethers in the black flowery one, even though I have no idea what she looks like!

tethersend Thu 23-May-13 21:32:30

Ah, thanks for trying all.

I think I just want this grin

Although I do like the mango one- will definitely see if they have it in store.

tethersend Thu 23-May-13 21:34:16

Love the print on the black one, but it's a bit shapeless...

sliceofcake Thu 23-May-13 21:42:42

I've got this , not a wrap but nice on

MrsLettuce Thu 23-May-13 21:44:19

yy, but shapeless can be very flattering. Honest. Maybe down a size . Is well worth trying on.
