I love this one, a bit different to the standard velvet dress (love the colour)

MASSIVE bargain if you’re an 8!

Actually there are also 3 full price ones on the Brora site - the silver V neck one is so beautiful!

I've bought this

Very extravagant but it feels amazing on and dressy but also comfy which is a revelation.

Am thinking fishnets and suede heels.

Boohoo have some lush ones, i got a beautiful teal one last week

I got a plain back one is Dorothy Perkins for £20 yesterday. Fits well and I don’t think I’ll wear it after this winter season as velvet will probably be out again.

Oasis have got some lovely ones, this is my fave http://www.oasis-stores.com/gb/clothing/dresses/spot-mesh-velvet-midi/064229.html?dwvar_064229_color=40&position=7&cgid=dresses#&start=7&categoryID=dresses

i’ve seen some lovely ones in new look at more budget prices smile

There are some at Monsoon. I saw them instore but didn't look too closely because I'd have splurged.

KungFuEric Wed 22-Nov-17 17:01:48

Ive seen these linked to on here previously and I love the rich green colour, I think it looks more exciting than black.

Roman.

Closet.

Ooh! The app decided my post needed to be made twice. Sorry!

Some gorgeous 40s style ones on Nancy Mac always. They do a wide variety of velvet dresses!

www.frenchconnection.com/product/woman-collections-dresses/71ibp/wilma-devor%C3%A9-short-sleeved-dress.htm this is a beautiful black and floral one

Lucked Wed 22-Nov-17 21:28:41

Biba have quite a few and have a Black Friday discount. I like this one

SpangledBoots Wed 22-Nov-17 21:31:05

ASOS have lots - including some gorgeous dramatic styles and a short, dotty, high necked, long-sleeved one from Warehouse I really have my eye on!

mabelchiltern Wed 22-Nov-17 23:31:25

Thanks all! We live rural so will have to get some delivered to try on. Thanks again for your suggestions. Party on!

BusterGonad Thu 23-Nov-17 16:54:29

Topshop had a lovely one a few years ago and even to this day I regret not buying it! I have bought a lovely dress today though, not velvet but I'll share with you all anyway! 😂

MWestie Thu 23-Nov-17 19:33:38

Sorry to hijack but @Gah81 some of those Nancy Mac dresses are gorgeous! Can I ask if you've had any before and if so what the sizing is like? Thanks.
