Style challenge: Help me find some nice summer dresses!

I have decided this summer I will buy a few new dresses, instead of my usual vest top and skirt combos. I was thinking I can spend between 10 and 30 roughly.
I am going to put as many details as I can as I am going to be away from the computer til about 3pm.
I am 5ft6, 34E (curvy), and size 14/16 (in an ideal world a 15 but sadly they don't make them! ). I like most things, am not afraid of sunny colours, or dark colours. Like stripes (diagonal or vertical), also funky designs. Oh I childmind so no need for anything officey, just general casual summer dresses for school runs, park, garden, etc.
Will pop back later. TIA

here on ebay

They are saying sold out but they had quite a few in our local, and it scanned up at only £9.75 instead of £20!

I'm going to wear it with a straw bag with silver handles, then either flip flops or roman sandals.
