I am mid way through losing weight so none of my nice things fit me (all size 6-8) and I'm an 8-10 at the moment.

I am going out properly (meal, drinks, club) tomorrow night and have nothing to wear.

I am looking to spend less than £50 as it will only be worn once or twice realistically.

I am 5ft 2ish, good legs, no bust but big ribs!

If anyone could help please do smile

Sleeves, no sleeves, colours?

What stores are near you that you could pop out to? Realistically, you won't be able to order anything online now, so that may rule out some shops.

Next day delivery with Next until 9 or 10pm if you can find anything there that you like smile

Any good?

Just seen that you can order on Oasis before 6 and get it next day, even on a Saturday!

Thanks for the replies so far, I like bodycon type dresses normally but have a bit of a tummy at the moment so something that isn't too tight on the stomach would be good.

Not too keen on patterns, preferin color blocking really.

We have a small House of Fraser, a rubbish Debenhams and the usual high street lot.

House of Fraser are doing a brand event today. 25% of brands on line and in store.
Most stores are open until 8 tonight.

I'm trawling through there now - have until 7 to order to collect in store tomorrow I think!

Is this too trashy (I'm 30)?

I know in the past when I get desperate looking for clothing I have made shocking decisions.

Have gone for these two, will more than likely return one of them, any views on them would be appreciated.

Prefer the red/purple one as the other one looks a bit shiny and cheap

I thought it might but the nicer one could look a bit sack-like on so thought I'd give it a go just incase!
