So, what did you wear???

I don't think I can do bare legs. Am pale as death and fake tan just makes me look dirty! Could do nude tights and big heels, maybe?

I've got this

Or this

But happy to buy something IF the dress looks any good! I like dirty gold coloured stuff. Shoes - I've got a couple of pairs of high black ones - stiletto, platform or wedge, or could get more (except I am even worse at buying shoes than I am at buying dresses!).

No, no... It's really nice actually. It's similar to the VW but different enough not to be a copy.

What would you wear it with? A thinking gold and bare legs (with tan). Shoes?

Throws cold water over her.

Is it too 'young' though?

I... I just... I can't even...

Fans Tethers and waves smelling salts around.

You can live with polyester shock

<faints dead away>

I know. I can live with polyester (at a push) if it's cheap - I seriously object to paying Reiss/Whistles prices for it though.

Will try it on and report back - is it too nightclubby/slaggy though?

That's lovely - but it's polyester!

That's nice!

omg love

Just found this. Would depend v much on the fabric, which is probably awful, but I like the shape. Is it too nightclubby?

DBM one lovely but I have a similar shaped one already. Don't like the other one - too blingy for me. Thank you though.

over budget but might be reduced in sale

[[ amazing price worth breaking your no online shop rule for???]

I can do fab shoes but have crap hair.

I think I'll try it on - it could work and it could be a disaster as, although I'm curvy I'm quite slim of hip and v small across the back. Maybe I've made myself sound more 'va va boom' than I actually am!

The frill back one was good, liked that a lot. Would need fabulous shoes and hair.

soaccidentprone Tue 18-Jun-13 18:21:45

The reiss dress is lovely. However I don't think it would flatter your shape and curvesgrin

American sites and Ebay no good. Sorry Tethers.

KM one is okay but I don't like the neck/shoulder line.

No opinions on that frill back one?

Did someone else do this?!

tethersend Mon 17-Jun-13 21:09:06

another US site, sorry

similar to your link

tethersend Mon 17-Jun-13 21:04:30

and ebay

tethersend Mon 17-Jun-13 21:00:53

have resorted to US sites in desperation

Can't remember if I've posted this already but I like the back Too shapeless?
