I'd like something summery that I could wear with wedges as I'll be on my feet a lot. I don't mind colour, but I'm not keen on florals or fuss - I'm not a girly girl. I'm 5'6 and a size 10/12 with a wobbly belly that I like to hide. Budget - up to £200ish - but less would be better.

I've trawled lots of websites but not seen anything I really really like.

Karen Millen?

Hmm not sure about that - its the length I think...

SymbollocksInteractionism Thu 19-May-16 13:10:34

What length/colour do you prefer?

Biba one is a lovely colour but I don't like the sleeves. I think I prefer shorter or no sleeves. I like knee length and maxi but knee for this occasion I think. See why I'm having trouble ;). I'm not sure a dress exists for me!!

This is gorgeous but pricey!

Do you have a particular pair of wedges in mind?

eleven59 Thu 19-May-16 15:17:41

Jeez that is expensive!

Wedges are a pair of nude/beige ones I've had for a while. I could get other shoes but need something comfortable.

eleven59 Thu 19-May-16 15:29:31

I like most of this but I hate the hemline.

This is on the Coast website reduced from £119 to £69 it's very flattering and in mint green or pale pink. It's very flattering.
