Dress for Presentation/Interview

Please help, I'm suffering from a double whammy of putting weight on so none of my smart clothes fit and not wanting to spend too much on new clothes as I'm determined to lose the said weight.

I'm self employed (normally home based in jeans) and been invited to give a presentation as part of a bid for a consultancy contract. I need to impress but have literally nothing suitable to wear (that fits).

So what would I like you to find for me:
1. Smart dress and cardigan or jacket
2. Size 18/20, and I'm 5' 7" and 45
3, I wear Boden, Fat Face, Joules (I know the last two aren't necessarily smart enough)
4. I don't need to look corporate (hence I can go for a cardigan), but do need to be tidy!
5. Inexpensive, preferably less than £100 for the lot.

Ok let's see what you can come up with. The presentation is in two weeks so it can be online or i can get to a biggish city for shop based stuff.
