3am all night googling, looking for a dress for a special occasion.
Looked at loads, but stupidly didn't bookmark the possibles.
Now I can't find it!

My browsing history automatically clears, so that's no help.

Mystery dress details -
Navy lace material.
Sleeves, possibly short
Knee-ish length

Distinguishing feature
It had a contrast insert band in black solid lace, around the waist, and inserted above the hem.

Would have been a UK site, and not high end designer priced.
Most probably £200 tops.

Can you find it mumsnet sleuths?
Thanks in anticipation wine

Make sure you change your settings before this gets wiped too! Good luck

FallenArchesBrokenDreams Thu 12-Jan-17 18:59:16

I'll bookmark it this time if it gets found!

What dress size?

You should post this in style & beauty. Those ladies can track down anything

JsOtherHalf Thu 12-Jan-17 19:04:25

If you are size 6 or 8:

I was just about to say about the phase eight dress as above?

ChocoChou Thu 12-Jan-17 19:16:47

Sounds like it could be by self portrait

FallenArchesBrokenDreams Thu 12-Jan-17 19:42:31

Thank you for all suggestions so far.
The phase eight luisa dress (gorgeous!) is very similar, but Mystery dress definitely had black inserts.
Also was a bit wider skirt. I'm quite heavy bottom half and pencil skirts don't do my bum any favours!

Off to check self portrait after supper...

Try Chi Chi London. ...sounds similar to some of theirs

If it is this one then it is the same one I bought today.

Evening all. We're moving this thread into Style and Beauty at the OP's request. Hope you find the Dress Of Dreams, Fallen!

FallenArchesBrokenDreams Thu 12-Jan-17 20:42:56

FrogsSpawnofSanta is brilliant!
That's the dress even though it is NOTHING like I described!
(Not lace, no sleeves...blush)

Is it lovely? What's the sizing like?

FallenArchesBrokenDreams Thu 12-Jan-17 20:45:59

I'll have to work on the bingo wings if I'm going to go sleeveless!

FrogsSpawnofSanta Thu 12-Jan-17 21:14:40

It is a lovely dress. Sizing wise it is ok but not over generous. The black band is sitting a bit high on me rather than at the waist, don't know if it is because I am tall and have quite a long body or the more likely I need to lose a couple of pounds for it.

I'm the same with the bingo wings. I have four weeks to work on them. Any tips/ miracles welcome smile
