First birthday party dress

Just wondering if anyone can help with some ideas of where to buy something lovely for my DD? I've just got this delivered, but it doesn't look nice enough for the price really I'd like something special but not OTT (if that makes sense!), pretty, but not tacky. I've been looking online but only seems to be the tail end of the Christmas stuff about and little new stock.

She's tall, but skinny so m&s for example usually just hangs off her, dark hair and eyes (pretty damn gorgeous grin biased)

Many thanks shopping gurus

Tricky at this time of year as most shops just have the end of the sale stuff left. I would try Monsoon, John Lewis, I used to buy dd lots of stuff from a make called mayoral, it is Spanish but sold in the UK. Sometimes Debenhams have the odd nice thing - have a look at the Ted baker range

I came on to say the Ted. Baker range. This dress is sweet.

Uniqlo is lovely, but not really very party-ish I suppose.

I was just looking at that dress oldroan, it looks nice and partyish but still looks like it would be comfortable.

That is lovely, thank you, it's a really pretty shape. I just wish they wouldn't put the flipping name of the designer of the skirt, cheeky free advertising! Thank you for all your help

I always find nice baby dresses in tk maxx think it's usually a brand called American princess x

Which dress did you opt for in the end? Can you tell I'm a tad invested with baby girl clothes? I have a 4mo Dd and can't buy anything for her for another year or so as I'm just inundated with clothes, but I'm so looking forward to it!
