What sort of price range faye? Are there particular shapes of dress you prefer? Heels or flats?

Anything up to £150 I tend to suit fitted styles better. heels rather than flats ,

I have a similar figure and would go for this.

I tried that one on yesterday, but it was quite big round the arms, it is a lovely dress, there was a similar one in red that had long sleeves that would have been perfect but I don't want red

Love this, might not be your thing though
too formal?

Dont like the 1st one but really like the 2nd one hard to choose between the navy or the purple

They both look lovey, just depends on the exact shades IRL really - I bet there's much less contrast between the fabrics under more natural lighting. So, yeah, am suspecting the pewter may also be a delight in the flesh too.
