Wot be a Galaxy dress ???

Beetroot Sun 07-Sep-08 14:33:20

this

JackieNo Sun 07-Sep-08 15:18:11

Hmm - found this, but the neckline's wrong.
This is lovely, but not sure you want black?
Ditto this, also, are you happy with something shorter?

Beetroot Sun 07-Sep-08 15:27:05

I don't want black
and I don't want it too short
LK B one is nice but - neck line not good for me

thank you for looking

JackieNo Sun 07-Sep-08 15:31:50

Figured you probably didn't want black. Is this too much? Price, and bow-wise? I think it's gorgeous.

That Karen Millen dress is lovely! Buy it and justify cost by saying its an investment piece!

OllieWollieWoo Sun 07-Sep-08 15:59:10

No sleeves and purple but I quite like this one

here

JackieNo Sun 07-Sep-08 16:04:17

Or Another pale one?
Red velvet?
Too daytime, I suspect

JackieNo Sun 07-Sep-08 16:05:33

That Principles one is nice, Ollie.

Beetroot Sun 07-Sep-08 16:34:02

I cannot really do pale

either blue or green ideally. BOLD colours.

Beetroot Sun 07-Sep-08 16:34:29

oh not red

am a red head

or purple

JackieNo Sun 07-Sep-08 17:01:01

Bother. Though purple can look stunning with red hair.

Beetroot Sun 07-Sep-08 17:08:39

yes but would have to be bright /deep

Ooh look? In the aqua?

Beetroot Sun 07-Sep-08 17:13:38

Jackie - I like that I think.

JackieNo Sun 07-Sep-08 17:14:27

Depends how dark the aqua is, I guess.

ahundredtimes Sun 07-Sep-08 17:15:22

Do you like this? It's expensive though.

Or this rather daring shirt, in the emerald, with one of their pencil skirts? Prob too low cut...
