I am going to be 40 soon and I am looking for a nice dress to wear for a family meal, budget £50 max. Stipulations:

I am 5ft5 and normally size 8/10, have put on a few pounds recently so a 10 probably
Small busted, slightly pear shaped, reasonable legs, prefer short dresses and I like straight dresses, but have to be a bit mindful of big bum and slight mum tum
I have purple hair, so feel that the above colours suit me better, but would be open to other suggestions.

Any ideas very welcome.

Thanks for the link. I like it but was looking for something a bit more dressy

Have a look at Phase 8 online, they've got some fab dresses with great reductions. I have been so happy with their stuff.
Can't manage a link I'm afraid!

bargain here and sounds like it would suit your shape well.

I love both of those dresses. Will check the Phase Eight website as well. Will prob go for the House of Fraser one. Thanks very much

not the colour you asked for, but would look great with purple hair

Thanks very much for the suggestions. Have bought this one (see below) on ebay. Will be tempted to get one of the other dresses if this one doesn't look right.$T2eC16d,!)sFI(v3uiJtBSTfDjKNh!~~60_12.JPG
