Hi,
Anyone see anything fab in the shops? I need something super dressy and a-line!

Thank you !!!

Check out TKMaxx. There were some absolutely gorgeous holy communion appropriate cream and white dresses there the other day for £20.

Can you link to something you like?

This Ted Baker dress is pretty.

Or something like this shift dress?

Surely the mothers don't have to wear cream or white, do they?

Ok. I totally misread the title and thought you were looking for a dress for your DD grin

What size do you need? Budget? Colour?

Thanks all. I've been looking at Coast and Ted Baker but feel that they will be popular for outfits and I don't want to end up with the same outfit as someone else !!! I'm 5 ft 4. Size 10-12, pear. Age 39. I tend to wear midi full skirts and a-line style, skater etc. Thanks. Oh, Sema..I liked the shift dress but not sure about the colour. Will have another look at it!

I like this.

This is pretty but maybe not dressy enough?

Oops the second one is sold out in your size.

When DD had her first communion, and when she got confirmed I don't recall any of the parents feeling that they had to buy a fabulous new outfit for the services. No-one paid any attention to the parents.

This was C of E BTW.

If it's a catholic service in Ireland or NI it will be very dressy!!

I don't do dresses, but for dd's FHC I wore a Phase Eight finely knitted navy longline tunic. I felt a million dollars, and wear it now for every other FHC/wedding/christening etc.

I like this which if work with turquoise statement jewellery and a big blow dry would be perfect

Golly, yes agree, very dressy in Ireland!
Where did I see a lovely skirt the other day.....
