I'm off to see the National TV Awards at the O2 at the end of the month.
I got my ticket today, and it's says dress code is glamorous, as it is being filmed.
Please can someone point me in the direction of a cheap yet glamorous dress, please?
I'm a size 14, and prefer long dresses, if I have to wear one. I'd prefer trousers/top or catsuit. I honestly have no idea where to start.....

Have you looked at Asos?

Pretty Dress Company does some lovely gowns but it's probably going to be one of those places you see 4 other women in the same dress.

Have a look at Chi Chi London on Asos.

Chi Chi London dresses are gorgeous! I've found a few on the asos site, thank you for all your help!

GOhara Mon 09-Jan-17 21:57:23

Oh good! They also have their own website which may be worth a look.

WeedlesHatOfDisappointment Mon 09-Jan-17 22:37:12

I couldn't find one in my price range go I've gone for this one though..

That's beautiful!!

WeedlesHatOfDisappointment Tue 10-Jan-17 12:41:29

Thanks! Just need to accessorise now...

BitOutOfPractice Tue 10-Jan-17 12:42:53

I hope it's not a rainy day OP! The dress is gorgeous but not sure white is very practical for January!

WeedlesHatOfDisappointment Tue 10-Jan-17 13:16:46

Lol! It's supposed to be a grey colour. I've got a black furry stolen to maybe use with it?

BitOutOfPractice Tue 10-Jan-17 16:04:05

I was thinking more about the bottom getting mucky if it rains tbh

WeedlesHatOfDisappointment Tue 10-Jan-17 23:30:39

You can tell I haven't thought this through...

I would imagine you'd pull up in a taxi and waft straight in, I think you'll be fine! Lovely dress and it sounds beautiful in grey

BitOutOfPractice Wed 11-Jan-17 08:50:35

Have you ever been to the o2 bagel? grin

Don't get me wrong op it's s very glam dress. What shoes / sandals are you planning? I'd have thought it's a sandal kind of dress. Again, maybe not great for January.

Sorry, I feel like I'm raining in your parade

WeedlesHatOfDisappointment Wed 11-Jan-17 15:40:10

No, don't worry practise I'm going to see how long it is, and then decide on shoe wear. Maybe silver? I could always buy a very cheap track suit, wear the track suit up there, and change into the dress when I get there?
I will have to wear heels though, I feel....

Holz657 Wed 11-Jan-17 15:42:32

Asos for sure.

BitOutOfPractice Wed 11-Jan-17 23:39:57

Heels, my dear, are a must grin
