Can you help?
My lovely friend is having a big birthday party & needs a dress.
She's tall, size 14 and is very body conscious.
She'd like something with sleeves and not too short. Fair hair with a slightly ruddy complexion. Any ideas? TIA

I'm not a frock expert but I am fair with a ruddy complexion and would love this from Dorothy Perkins.

Thanks, that is lovely, but I think she's looking for something more dressy.

I thought that might be the case.

blush hello

What sort of price range?

Hello mrsL, under £200. Apparently must have some sleeve and not be body con. She actually has a great figure, very in proportion but doesn't see it. She's a fan of those lace top bits IYKWIM.

Something like this?

lace top dress

Might be too dark a colour though if she's fair though.

How about this? Is an amazingly flattering cut and a right bargain too.

Ooh, you lot are clever. Those are just the sort of thing, I'll pass the ideas on. Thank you very much.
