Please help to find me a dress!

Arg! Work Christmas lunch on Thursday - nothing to wear.

I'm size 10/12. Small boobs, OK waist, chunky thighs and calves. Not very body confident and much prefer knee length dresses which have a bit of "structure" rather than drape iyswim. Dark colours best, but plain black makes me look washed out.

To add complication, I can't do high heels so it needs to look OK with either heeled ankle boots or flats. Also, I have "backne" scars so feel uncomfortable in dresses with low backs.

I'm 34 and would be happy to pay up to £60 (more if its really perfect).

Please please help, I'm desperate!

How about something like this shirt dress?

Or this one would look good with heeled ankle boots

There are quite a few dresses about like this which you could wear with black ankle / shoe boots .. or maybe a leather skirt with sparkly jumper and tights which you could also wear with ankle boots .
