Hello you lovely lot smile

Daughters wedding fast approaching and everyones got their outfit apart from me!

I'm late 40's, 5ft 4'' and a size 12 but can't find anything that has given me that "Wow" feeling when I put it on. I'm not keen on the formal suits and would prefer something a little more individual. I've tried Coast, Monsoon etc but just can't find the right thing.....any ideas?

What's your budget?

Any colours you like?

Preferred sleeve & skirt length?

How about this to start?

I'd pay £300 - £400 and a bit more if it was "the" one.

Colours - lilac, navy/cream, silver/blue.

On the knee or bit shorter my calves aren't too bad! I'm hitting the gym to get to grips with my bingo wings so no sleeve/ short sleeve.

I quite like the Issa dress but think it would be too long on me.

Thanks horrace, I love the Vivien of Holloway dress, I may order it in Blueberry.
