Hobbs Bella Dress - I'm not going to find it am I

I saw this dress today and absolutely fell in love with it, it's for a black tie event for DH work next week, I need it in a size 14 but it's hardly available anywhere and if it is then only in tiny sizes, I'm going to have to give up aren't I? sad

I have got that dress and it is lovely - are you anywhere near an actual Hobbs outlet?

Crispmonster1 Sat 06-May-17 22:29:48

It's lovely! Good luck.

BumWad Sat 06-May-17 22:31:38

That is a lovely dress.

Good luck

I can find it in an 8,10,12 & 16 but typically not a 14, sorry

MrsELM21 Sat 06-May-17 22:32:38

Yes, I went to the Hobbs outlet which was where I saw it but in typical outlet style they only had 8's 🙄

I really really loved it ☹️

Have you looked at Ted Baker?

BarchesterFlowers Sat 06-May-17 22:33:03

What is really nice about it is the length, it is not above the knee like so many other lovely Hobbs dresses!

I hope you find one.

MrsELM21 Sat 06-May-17 22:33:05

Ooh ooh where's the 16??? It might do...

KavvLar Sat 06-May-17 22:33:30

Call me crazy but you could do worse than look on AX Paris if you can't find that one. They have lots of similar shapes -

IME it can be best to size up from your normal size as the waistbands are very snug and there is no give in them.

MrsELM21 Sat 06-May-17 22:33:46

I did look at Ted Baker but they didn't look quite smart enough x

MrsELM21 Sat 06-May-17 22:37:03

PLEASE come back FluffyBathTowel !!!

I have no idea where you're based so I just typed in London as a location and the convent garden store has it in stock in a 14.

Use the store locator for your nearest store to see if it's in stock or phone the CG store and see if they'll send it to you. Or phone Customer Services and beg.

The size 16 was on Bloomingdales website. Didn't realise that you needed it by next week so it's unlikely to arrive from the US in time.

It was a US12/UK 16

MrsELM21 Sat 06-May-17 22:50:27

Thank you so much, I've emailed customer services as a starting point...

neveradullmoment99 Sat 06-May-17 23:01:45

They have it in a 12 on the next website.

MrsELM21 Sat 06-May-17 23:04:07

So they do!! Thank you, but it's £180 and £119 from Hobbs, I'll see if I can hold my nerve!

dailystuck71 Sun 07-May-17 08:29:42

Get the 16 and get it altered?

MrsELM21 Sun 07-May-17 08:42:33

It might not need too much altering! 🐷

BusterGonad Sun 07-May-17 08:44:42

Coast at Very have a nice stripy dress, I know it's not the same! sad

MrsELM21 Sun 07-May-17 20:52:39

What do you think of this??

BarchesterFlowers Sun 07-May-17 21:24:53

Fussy by comparison. What about this?

BarchesterFlowers Sun 07-May-17 21:28:15

I actually really like this too, have been looking at it for months but is just not quite right for my work dos.

MrsELM21 Sun 07-May-17 21:49:01

Thank you! I think that Hobbs is probably going to be the answer!

MrsLettuce Sun 07-May-17 21:58:22

Eliza J quite probably do something comparable to the Hobbs dress but the HoF site seems to be down ATM so I can't look.
