I have been invited to an evening wedding reception in a few weeks and need to sort an outfit out, but so far haven't found anything I like. I'm thinking a dress with heels - can anyone help me please!

I don't have a lot to spend on the outfit - about £50-£60 pounds and ideally would like to get heels that I can get a bit of wear out after (i.e at work).

Thank you!

What's you're usual style/what sort of things suit your shape?
Starting with shoes, Dune have quite a few nice ones in the sale, I've just got the Bertie Acanda for a wedding I'm going to at the end of the month and they're lovely - plus really comfy!
Regarding dresses, Reiss has some nice ones in the sale, I like particularly like these ones blue, green print, roses, sequined sparkly. Or there's all sorts of styles on John Lewis

Thanks pearly. I don't think I have a any style as such but I've had another look and have found a few dresses. Any opinions would be gratefully received!

Btw love the shoes smile.

I'm sure I've tried that French Connection one on and thought the material was really, really thin (might have got the wrong dress though!).
Out of the ones you've picked my favourite's the green prom dress (it's lovely), I'd keep the accessories simple, plain, vintage-style shoes in a metallic (like the ones I mentioned previously) or a contrasting pastel (or just nude, though I think it's difficult to find good ones on a budget). Jewellery wise, depends on how the neckline sits in real life and your hairstyle! I'd go for a statement/eye catching bracelet - something like this, this, this, or this.

Thank you, I've ordered the green and blue yumi dresses. Do you think these shoes would be ok?
