want some new dresses for winter, to wear with boots or wedge shoes, just below knee ideally

am a pear - size 10-12 top, 12-14 bottom
nice (tho' largish and slightly untoned these days) rear end
no norks to worry about - I can invent a small amount of cleavage with a gel bra if necessary
tummy is a wobbler but not huge due to regular application of pilates
am 5'6"
brunette hair (slight red tint) - short bob, pale skin, green eyes

interested in what you think might suit - nothing too mumsy
button through maybe?
wrap normally makes me feel a bit bottom heavy and nork light but maybe am just too selfconcious

too shapeless?

This one would look good with a polo neck under when the weather gets colder

I'm struggling to find any other colours that arent navy, black or grey.

i have just bought this M & S dress

it is really nice

thick black tights and mary janes/boots

it is a good fit

ooh, that M&S one, and the uttam one (though worried a bit hippyish?)

am trying to stay away from black though

now, what about this? am I just barmy? would it suit my shape?

it feels quite retro to me and I like retro...but if you need decent boobs to carry it off I am doomed...

this with leggings and black boots

forgot to mention - have VERY bad knees so even with leggings couldn't do above the knee

ot the other hand have rather fine calves so showing those off is no problem

that jersey one from kew is nice but I reckon would just swamp me and make my tummy look enormous - those gathers look terrifying - maybe I'm wrong though...

(I sound a rather funny shape!)
