I want to find a red day dress... I'm thinking smart, restrained and demure, but with a kind of promise of sexiness at the same time. Not too tight in the skirt. I'm 5'6 and a slim size 8-10 (depending). I tried the Baukjen Elswick but thought it was a bit frumpy on me. Help! All suggestions very welcome.
And a few from John Lewis. I particularly like the Reiss but it may be a bit much as a day dress. (Would love to know the backstory. In my head, it's to do with office romance ) LK Bennett Reiss Yanny Karen Millen - note split
Wow, NewPants we are onto something now! You deserve the bonus point, which is that the reason the skirt shouldn't be too tight, is that there is a bit of stocking action promised as well and I don't want the suspenders to show through! Next question will be where to buy the suspenders!! I sound a bit slutty, but honestly I'm not. I'm just enjoying the wonderful feeling of dressing up for someone after spending several years looking after a husband with dementia (hence the username... and by the way, I'm only 48, it's not like I'm 70...don't let the dementia thing give you the wrong idea). So it's all kind of exciting and lovely.
