Is it still too early? I'm a 14 with big boobs and good legs from the knee down! We are talking fake tans and hair extensions. Not my style. I don't know where to start looking. Not Monsoon as everyone goes there. Budget £200 max.

Have you tried asos? Wide range of designers and high street on there.

I don't think I can wear any pastels. I'm a bloody apple shape as well.

The pretty dress company.

What about this kind of thing

At first I thought Karen Millen but not sure if you're an apple ... just had a look and there doesn't seem to be many that would fit the bill at the moment at all ... what sort of styles suit you?

Try Coast?

I don't know if I'm exactly an apple but I'm not a pair. I have no arse thanks to my low carbing. I don't like that two to be stle or Vicky Beckham style.

Have a look at-

Deadly is the female
Lady vintage
The pretty dress company

If you don't like/suit the wag look<eurgh>then I would go very classy or vintage.

Have you had a look at Lipsy? They often do very glamorous dresses, and feature other brands on there for more inspiration!

Or Goddiva have a big range for their summer evening dress collection that may be worth looking into.

Other than that, perhaps House Of Fraser? Its quite tricky if it isn't your kind of style I suppose, have you asked any other guests what they're wearing or where they are looking?

Good luck!

What about this emerald green Michael Kors jobby? The v neck will show off your boobage in a non-flashing and the length is good for your shapely ankles grin
