Help needed to find a slinky gown

Hi stylish ones. I am going to a ball in three weeks time and have lost a lot of weight over the last year. I am an 8/10 and tall. I have a dress in my mind which may or may not actually exist in real life...

Ok, so it's gold... (Maybe another colour would be fine if shape was right) and its a kind of light weight satin, long, clingy, maybe a bit fish taley... Very thin straps, ideally low backed? Does this exist? Have I made it up?

Sounds like Ghost would be worth a look.

This sort of thing but gold?

What's your budget?

tethersend Wed 31-Jul-13 16:22:29

not satin

Ghost dye to order

Is it this dress?

No idea where it's from though.

Looks v dodgy, but they say they'll make it...

This sounds v like dd1's prom dress. If you are a size 8 and in Birmingham, you are welcome to borrow it. smile

Oh hers is low at the front, not the back - missed that bit, sorry.

How was your London trip, Remus?

I am on an iPad and can't do proper links.

I offer this with mixed feelings. Tried it on the other day. The fabric is stunning but the top half was a bit stiff rather than slinky. But just in case you love it.

This is a great Ghost shape - not sure if they will dye it to order though. I do find their colour range to be basically rubbish or I'd have bought of the them by now.
