It's my 30th birthday next week and my lovely sister has organised a party. I'm having real trouble finding something suitable to wear; if I'm not in my work uniform I'm usually dressed in dog walking clothes and wellies!
I'm 5"3, slim and dark and open to any suggestions (which will be most gratefully received). Ideally after something with a little sparkle and that I can wear with black tights and also prefer sleeves if possible.

Thank you so much for your help you lovely people smile

Too much sparkle? It is on sale!

Pretty short but could be okay if you are little smile

Lovely colour and less sparkly! Only a cap sleeve though

Comes in black too - I really like this!,mon_1.2/8456261908

Any thoughts on any of these? grin

What is your budget, and is there any particular style you like (or perhaps someone who you think dresses very well?)

How about something like this?

If you can pull off the gamine Twiggy thing, perhaps this?

Or maybe this with a big statement necklace and clutch.

Thank you so much for your ideas, I really like the Ted Baker and Monsoon dresses. Really appreciate your time.

Bit harsh Brenda? People can’t always reply straight away smile

Glad you like some of them op!

I've got this one but beware it's lower cut and sparklier than it looks in the photo
