Little black dress

I have a dinner dance next week and my old little black dress has died a tumble drier death.

I need one that can do a smart restaurant or a dinner dance. It needs to be quite versatile. I won't need it for workwear it's purely my 'cocktail' dress.

I've looked at Asos but everything I've seen there looks young, hallowe'eny and a bit tarty. John Lewis was either too formal or too work wear.

I'm 5ft5 size 10. Good hips, flat bust. Where would you shop?

phase eight?

Thanks. Good suggestion but nothing I like there! A few options but they all had long sleeves which I think makes it look a bit day dress like.

when you get to my age you will like long sleeves, they cover up the bad bits, or some of them

What about this from Monsoon ?

Mano is often worth a look, Zara too. Maybe Warehouse and oasis as well?

Will have a rummage.

Thanks - Zara and oasis are 2 shops I've liked in the past so will have a look.
