Oh and its for a prom.

Does she have a colour, or colours, in mind?

shutupandshop Sun 22-Nov-15 19:37:38

Black but shes open to other colours.

You'll find loads on eBay if you search 'skater prom dress black'.

Does this style appeal to her:

The M&S dress (above) is available in size 8 and this is a Monsoon number that may also appeal if your dd doesn't want an all black dress which, to my mind, can look out of place on a very young woman:

KateSpadeAddict Sun 22-Nov-15 21:34:50 not sure if the cut out is appropriate!

littlenicky61 Sun 22-Nov-15 21:36:13 river island h&m and new look all have loads

shutupandshop Sun 22-Nov-15 22:27:19

Thanksflowers I'll run them past her

She needs something from here to show off all her youthful gorgeousness.

This is the age to have fun with clothes. Spread your wings and fly.

This one reduced to £17-99

Down to £30


Dowser Sun 22-Nov-15 23:24:04

There's loads on the page, I've just tried to pull out a variety
Think that one was £15 so you can get the shoes as well

This one is really pretty

The ones I really don't like have a short skirt at front and longer at the back. From the front you are looking at the inside of the fabric. Fugly!

Asos also have a good selection of Chi Chi dresses which are lovely and exactly what you are looking for.

Dowser Sun 22-Nov-15 23:31:21

This is so pretty but sadly not in her size
