Any recommendations please for a dress for a black tie event in late June? I'm 5ft 6in, size 12 small/average bust. I fancy something one-shouldered or toga like and am relatively ambivalent about the colour. Don't want to spend masses (c. £150) but want to look elegant. Have had a cursory look online but not really been inspired. Any recommendations gratefully received.

this is very toga like indeed. Maybe too toga like?
this is very pretty but I wonder if it'd suffer from washer/dryer syndrome, IYSWIM
thi s is stunning don't think I've ever said that about a monsoon dress before (is IFFAH ONE SHOULDER MAXI DRESS if the link wont load)

just assuming you want long. Cocktail length is obviously fine for black tie, was the toga thing I think.

What about this from Gorgeous Couture. Available in 5 different colours. They also do a one shouldered dress with a different width shoulder.
