Hi, I have a wedding this weekend coming and have left it a bit late to sort my outfit. I bought this dress a while ago and need to style it, I like it, but it isn't a style I usually wear. The dress is cut straight, I tend to wear more pencil type dresses, also the neck is higher than I normally do for.

Anyhow, I need a jacket, I had envisioned a 60s style straight dress coat, single bottom at top, 3/4 sleeves and 1 inch longer than the dress, in white, but I can't find one!

I need the full works in terms of accessorising. I have nude patent courts an d black patent courts already and will probs use a largish tan tote as handbag as I have an 18 month old...

I can get to shoppe like Reiss, LK Bennett, French Connection etc, or anywhere that will deliver in time...

I'm brunette, size 10-12, curvy of bottom, slim boobs.

Um...a single button at the top....I do in fact have one one bottom!

Hmm, you don't state a budget, however I have found a couple of things (not exactly what you wanted though!)

This from Phase 8 which could be nice, depending how tall you are, and where it hits your curves IYKWIM.

This one also from phase 8 but I'm not 100% convinced the colour is 'clean' enough, v hard to tell on a computer.

This is ivory, from Monsoon but might clash with the white...

Again, monsoon and ivory I guess you'd need to see it in person.

White does not seem to be popular atm!

Of course, fall-back question- have you looked in TKMaxx? I get almost all my wedding things there, usually no-one else has anything similar.

I don't think tan will go tbh. I think you need black strappy and pointy shoes and a black or white coat. Are you definitely going to be outside? Because I would probably hedge my bets and not take one.

I'll have a scout round for you, what size shoe?

Really like that first coat Atomic has linked to.

French Connection jacket

Reiss - love these shoes, although they are sort of nudeish

Ooh, I love these shoes too!
