Maxi dress quest

Not sure if the dress I have in mind exists, but it would be great if it did and someone could point me in the right direction! I'd love a maxi dress in a neutral/brown/ navy pattern (any combo), with wide-ish straps. Am not keen on tiers/flounces/low necklines. Or polyester, tho viscose is fine.
Any thoughts very welcome! Budget up to £80, tho cheaper very much better...

A small bump...

Did you find one? I am looking for a maxi dress, as well. Want unflouncy and unpolyester, too, though I don't mind brighter colours as long as we're not talking pale pink.

oh oh oh ...check out the monsoon maxi mine today, have a thread about it....(the one about gorgeous dress)

Horton Sat 27-Jun-09 21:36:36

That is one lovely dress, wider.

I like this, too, but was hoping to spend a bit less.

Hey - responses! Horton - no, sadly, but I am ever hopeful. Sounds like we're looking for the same things - have you found one?That Monsoon maxi you linked to is nearly perfect; only reservations for me would be the polyester lining and the horizontal pattern. But it is lovely. Wider - can't see that link anymore but I think I know the dress, and it is gorgeous. I wish you well to wear it!

How about this any good?

For some reason, the Kew website seems to be down but I will look later - I love Kew.

They neve rhave anything above a 14 - grrrrr!

You have to run the magnifier over to get the full effect - no need for a bra because of the tie thing

Oooh, you lot are fab. I love both of those but sadly the Kew one doesn't come in my size. Think I may go and visit the Phase 8 one at the weekend.

Horton Fri 03-Jul-09 14:24:30

Hm, having looked at sizing, maybe the Kew one does come in my size. But I thought Kew things came up quite large? I do have a 34" bust but last time I tried on a 10 in Kew it was enormous on me.

I love this dress but it might be popular as it was on a Gok Wan programme

Horton Fri 03-Jul-09 16:25:55

I love that! I will add it to my list. I want the dress for when I go on holiday at the end of July so plenty of time.

I got a black maxi dress from fasion union. They have some others here

Horton Fri 03-Jul-09 16:34:04

That's a very bargainous website! Thanks!

great pattern not sure if straps are wide enough

Horton Fri 03-Jul-09 22:41:42

Love the Uttam one. I am now officially Spoilt For Choice. Hope the OP likes some of these, too!

tessofthedurbervilles Fri 03-Jul-09 22:45:27

Try la redoute they have some and really well priced.

I have that dress madre. It's hardly ever in stock on the website i had to check almost daily to get it. It's selling for £95 on ebay! Ridiculous! Always get compliments about it though. Good luck finding it !

Oooh I love the Rocha one. Amazing dresses - thank you for all the ideas here!
