please help me find something.

It's DP's birthday on the 22nd and he's having a big family meal at the Casino in Northampton. I only own one dress (which he bought me a few weeks ago) and I really don't want to have to wear it again for going out.

I have some black shoes to wear with a dress and I don't really want to have buy any more (although I suppose I could if I had to).

I'm 5ft tall and 30D bust, size 8 - need something nice - but not too expensive.....

HELP please.

Wallis have some nice dresses in their petite range and they are quite reasonable

oo I quite like that first one you linked to dexter (nothing like I'd usualy wear -but seen as though I only own one dress and I wouldn't have bought it until DP said he WAS going to take me clothes shopping for a dress (and shoes, and strapless bra as it turned out lol)).

Was totally flumoxed - had no idea what to look for - couldn't even decide what I liked, never mind whehter it would suit my shape/size blush
