Got a wedding to attend in April and I want a dress with sleeves as I think it has potential to be chilly. Bought a dress from ASOS and little mistress both midi length with sleeves and sent both back. Want to go actual shopping but not really got a clue which stores to try. I don't want to spend anymore than £100 but for perfect dress I would go a touch higher. Any ideas where I should be looking?
Go to John Lewis or House of Fraser with a personal shopper appointment. Lots of concessions in store, and someone else will pick clothes to your requirements while you sit in a nice room. Take a friend.
Sorry, forgot to come back after super busy day Thanks for all the suggestions I've booked a train to Edinburgh so will have a good time looking in all. I think I'm in that age bracket (38) of not wanting to look too young but not too frumpy.
Depending on type of wedding and what you do week to week, you could consider getting something that would double for work, like a really nice shift dress in a flattering colour and quality fabric? I have found it a solution to feeling grown up but not frumpy.
