Worrying about the dress I've got for my party.

It's a Lipsy one. I do like it but I don't know if I LOVE it.

I first saw it in a slightly different style (strapless) and in pink. But for some reason I didn't get it. I was worried it looked a bit tarty.

But then I saw it in a slightly diferent style, with straps, in another colour. My twin sister liked it too, so we got it in different colours.
((We wanted our dresses to be either the same in diff colours, or diff dresses in the same colour))

Also I wanted some silver strappy sandals. But the only ones I could find were either too expensive, or too high, or out of stock.
I have found some today but I'm not sure about those either!! I wanted strappy but I could only get mules. I'll do a link. They are sparkly and pretty.
Oh and they were free as the shop assistant forgot to charge me for them! I noticed when I got home.

I wanted to look fab! I didn't want black.

this is the dress It's now in the sale

this is the one I wanted origionaly (sp)

These are the shoes

Right since starting this thread I've ordered the pink one. By next day delivery. I hope it arrives in time! The partys on friday.

there is not alot of difference between them, but i like the pink one more

princessmel Wed 16-Jul-08 21:45:23

They're the same dress really. Slight variations.

I think the pink one is more special.

princessmel Wed 16-Jul-08 21:58:22

Anyone else have any views?

lou33 Wed 16-Jul-08 22:03:04

EffiePerine Wed 16-Jul-08 22:04:33

don't like the back of the blue one

what size are you? I hope you are small of nork grin

princessmel Wed 16-Jul-08 22:06:26

I've got it in a 10.
I'm hoping it will come in time and I can try them both on at the same time to compare them. I'm sure I'll know when I do that.
dh hasn't seen the pink one yet.

I prefer the colour of the blue, but the style of the pink.... sorry, not much help to you is it hmm A size 10 though I am sure you will look stunning in either one

I prefer teh pink one, and shoes are nice, think they'll look perfect with the dress.

princessmel Thu 17-Jul-08 09:43:53

Thanks for your thoughts guys.

I'm really hoping the pink one comes in time.

I'm paniking about my hair too. My hairdresser is coming at 4 tomorrow. I hope she cuts it nice.

The same design as the blue one but in Coral. I think it's called a tiered racer back dress. She loved the back on it.

I was ill last weekend and I dont want to be ill this weekend.

Worrying about everything!!

I got an email this afternoon, saying that it's been dispatched, so fingers crossed!

My friend has just had a go at tonging my hair and it looks really nice. I'll ask the hairdresser to do it tomorrow.

Did you get it?

princessmel Sat 19-Jul-08 10:23:13

Ha ha!! Yes it came while I was at the hospital with ds in the morning. (he had his cast removed)

I had to go to the post office to collect it.

I wore it to the party!!! I think I looked really nice !!
I'll add a pic to my profile in a bit.

But it looks a bit of a state now, I fell over in it and spilt lots of drink. Cringe

LisaLessLumpy Sat 19-Jul-08 11:31:51
