I am going to a wedding reception tomorrow night, and have nothing to wear!

I'm 22, 5ft10 and a size 12 with medium length red hair.

Has anybody seen any nice dresses or outfits in the shops at the moment that might suit me? I need to go out tomorrow and find something.

thank you xx

cutting it fine!! what's your budget?

haha i know:| because i bought my dress a month ago, but have lost more weight than i expected. I just tried it on and its all baggy. Its really really nice too!!
Probably looking to spend up to £40 on a dress/outfit.

not sure how you feel about red

Can't you take original dress back and swap for smaller size?

HollyandNoah Fri 25-Jul-08 23:10:01

Stargazing! you're good, you should be a personal shopper.

Granny, i bought it in tkmaxx.

I heart dresses smile

another fab colour on a redhead

what shoes do you have?

Stargazing Fri 25-Jul-08 23:16:09

over budget but a keeper, you'd get loads of wear out of a classic like this

HollyandNoah Fri 25-Jul-08 23:18:13

I have lots of shoes so i'd probably be able to match something. if not newlook shoes are good for last min shoe hunting! I really like the newlook one, and the purple one! ooo.

HollyandNoah Fri 25-Jul-08 23:21:01

I have lots of similar things to that, i might have a rummage through my pre pregnancy dresses, but thats probably pushing it!

Stargazing Fri 25-Jul-08 23:22:03

have fun!! congrats on your weight loss too smile
