Have a late October wedding to attend. Had set my heart on [ this] but it's sold out sad! What the hell do I do? Can't see anything else I like! Please take mercy on me, has anyone seen anything vaguely similar?

OhTheDrama Thu 22-Aug-13 20:32:21

Sorry proper link!

LillyofWinchester Thu 22-Aug-13 20:38:37

That dress is lovely, I want it now too! You could try ebay over the next few months in the hope it comes up, or if not

Otherwise maybe a local seamstress could make something similar?

Lilly love the colour and shape but hate the material!

Vivien of Holloway make 1950s style dresses, have you tried them?

Hatescolds Thu 22-Aug-13 21:07:35

not sure what size you are as this is limited but similar?

OhTheDrama Thu 22-Aug-13 21:20:21

What about this?

RosieLig Thu 22-Aug-13 21:41:55

Why don't you go for the same dress but in a different colour? It's lovely and red is still in stock.

RosieLig Thu 22-Aug-13 21:43:04

Navy and black still in stock in some sizes...

OhTheDrama Thu 22-Aug-13 21:44:33

Really not a fan of red, scared it will be a bit overpowering! DH suggested the same thing!

RosieLig Thu 22-Aug-13 21:44:39

Someone on here said its very flattering as 2 layers of jersey

Cohenite Thu 22-Aug-13 21:45:05

I had a peep to see why it was going to be a crap wedding! smile

I read your title as, 'Oh, crap wedding coming up' and thought, well wear any old shit, then!

Sorry, nothing constructive to add blush

Ms23 Thu 22-Aug-13 21:54:04

Hows this?

I've posted this dress on here before but it is quite similar in shape to the one you liked. I wore it to a wedding and cannot recommend highly enough.

OhTheDrama Thu 22-Aug-13 21:56:29

Ah sorry to disappoint! Hopefully not a crap wedding coming up, it's a Friday one too, so had better be worth my days annual leave!

tethersend Thu 22-Aug-13 21:59:52

similar again

What size do you need?

OhTheDrama Thu 22-Aug-13 22:02:39

tethers Not too sure on that, will order anyway.
Ms23 Like that but not sure on the colours, would prefer green.

OhTheDrama Thu 22-Aug-13 22:03:35

Size 12, am 5"8' so have to be careful with lengths.

OhTheDrama Thu 22-Aug-13 22:06:17

WOW! Love the Maxmara one! Would I get away with black opaques and what should i wear as a cover up?

soaccidentprone Thu 22-Aug-13 22:10:23

I love the MM one grin

And the length looks good for a taller woman.

tethersend Thu 22-Aug-13 22:11:16

Yy to black opaques.

this also nice

soaccidentprone Thu 22-Aug-13 22:12:43

And there's currently an extra 20% off for the next 10 hours!
