Desigual dresses - similar

I'm trying to find an outfit for a family wedding and was looking at 'typical' wedding guest type things - the rest of the family are much more 'glam' than me and I suppose I was trying to 'keep up'.

However, I'm really uncomfortable trying to be fashionable. It's not me and doesn't work. I'm much more 'quirky' in style (although haven't had much style for a long while).

Anyway, I love Desigual dresses, but can't find one that's smart enough for a wedding. Or this wedding anyway. Anything similar? Under £100.

I think short (Desigual are maybe too short). I'm 40, slight build, short dark hair.

You could try Yumi, they are a bit of a mix I think but some of them might be up your street and they are available for quite a bit less I think. They do some nice ones with long sheer sleeves with various prints or scenes on (and other types too).

DD has had Yumi dresses before (she's only 6 though). Lovely quality. I'll have a look.

A friend of mine was once wearing a Joe Browns dress that was very like a desigual dress I have. (I've had that particular dress for about 4 years and wear it once or twice a fortnight, in the summer, do it had been good value for money, even if it wasn't cheap.)

St Martins is sort of similar. eBay have stuff

You could also try vintage-y styles if you fancy something different? Take a look at Little Wings Factory or Lindy Bop online for examples, they are generally flattering and a lot of them very wedding-suitable.

Try Issa on ebay. Not all of them, but some might fit the bill
