Please link!

I want to be inspired.

I like this Everything's quite understated where I work, but people do surprise me at the Christmas party!

This.... it is a fairly casual affair with none of the bosses.

It covers everything I want it to!

AmberNectarine Wed 11-Nov-15 23:31:08

I have bought this and this.

Hairy, I love the Jane Norman dress! What is it like on? Is it good quality? And how short is it on a normal person - I'm 5'3". Oh and one more question (!) - what is the sizing like? I remember Jane Norman clothes being notoriously small...

That Karen Millen dress is stunning! I have a shopping day planned next week - I've searched online but need to go try some on before I decide.

Really like the Maje dress Amber.

Not a dress, but this. Office party. Theoretically black tie but in practice cocktail dresses

I like this...

That's nice and a good price- I have footballer's legs unfortunately so short dresses are not a good look on me.

HairySubject Thu 12-Nov-15 12:52:32

Umberella I haven't bought it yet, the quality is usually ok in Jane Norman and yes their sizing is definitely smaller than say Dorothy Perkins. I would buy a 12 in there but a 10 in most places.

I love the Karen Millen Dress!

i'VE just ordered two from the phase-8 website. I'll send one (or both back) if not right so I hope their returns are good.

this one, it's all in how it will look on

and this one, simple but will be nice on I hope

I've just noticed that the first phase 8 dress is a ''wedding guest'' dress shock

I was thinking work xmas party for that one.
