I need a little black dress. I cant find one I like. I am 5 foot 8 and a size 12. I'd like to to be knee length or a little shorter, simple, elegant with a touch of sexy. I had a lovely strappy lace one, but have recently lost a dress size so its too big for me now. thanks in advance.

This lace one looks quite nice if you're happy with sleeves

Like the second one. I do have one black dress that fits but it's a very sober affair that I wear to funerals. Very flattering and elegant but also very formal. Would like something a tad more fun but not too much. The first one won't suit me.

You could find a local dressmaker who could take your original dress in?
Cheaper, better for the environment, and no more searching?
