I like the maxi dress no 3 I think

Have to say, I like the Monsoon Rio best too - partly for the fact that you'll be able to wear a bra with it. How norkular are you? Will you be comfortable with strapless? If so, I love the purple coast one as well. Others a bit like everything else that's around atm (sorry).

MrsMattie Tue 14-Oct-08 17:06:17

I like the Monsoon ones best. Coast is lovely but can be a but too clingy/satiny and fitted for curvier figures.

pReachyTheExorcist Tue 14-Oct-08 17:47:44

Normally have small norks but BF has changed that with dramatic effect LOL! Strapless bra is OK I think though

Award is for the Youth class at the carnivals the boys / DH (and me occasionally) do, quite a big event

Will revert to peachy name then profile will reappear!

dh is paying, my graduation gift as I had to miss graduation for a carnival (hmm , sad)

JackieNoHeadJustABloodyStump Tue 14-Oct-08 19:19:51

I like the gold M&S one.
Fab pattern
Has detachable straps in case you need them
Love the colours but might not work with your hair?

JackieNoHeadJustABloodyStump Tue 14-Oct-08 19:21:47

Wow - click on 'more pictures' to see the back. Fab.

Flamesparrow Tue 14-Oct-08 19:27:00

quite likle the littlewoods purple too

twinsetandpalls Tue 14-Oct-08 19:28:48

I like the principles one and the black autograph one.

PuppyMonkey Tue 14-Oct-08 19:29:17

Can't beat monsoon - but go in not online. I did today and they have loads of new stuff in that is really nice. You need to try stuff on...

twinsetandpalls Tue 14-Oct-08 19:36:36

The only think with monsoon is that everyone has it!

samsonara Tue 14-Oct-08 20:03:42

Loving the silver beaded back dress, principles one and the autograph black one too as twinsetandpalls mentioned and agree about the monsoon one though I do like that one alot too

Peachy Wed 15-Oct-08 09:15:09

Oh I will try it all on- Cardiff isn't much of a drive for Principles etc, and there's Monsoon / M&S etc in Newport

Loads of nice suggestions- thanks. Am going to enjoy this (I always do but we haven't had a night out now for 2 years for various reasons)

Peachy Wed 15-Oct-08 09:16:14

I did Monsoon last time T&P and nobody else did; the thng I have to my benefit is that everybody else lives in South Somerset whereas we don't- we have far mroe access to shops!
