I'm pale skinned, dark curly hair, have tattoo's and a bit of an ex-goth (style and beauty people, please be nice!)

I need a dress for a wedding... in 3 weeks time/ Ordered a couple but no luck so far.

I like this dress but it's only available to size 16.

Needs to be mid-calf length to ankle length... I have horrible legs sad

yarrggh.. someone help me?!?!

Monsoon! I was size 18 last year, and I wore a beautiful silk Monsoon dress to a wedding.

Monsoon did have a sale on the other week - I wonder if it's still on?

"I'm pale skinned, dark curly hair, have tattoo's and a bit of an ex-goth" Sounds like you can get away with gorgeous colours then.

Or Debenhams have a 70% sale on.

A bit over budget, but what do you tink of this?

They have it in black too

This is gorgeous, they have it in an 18, it's only £75 ... but not really what you asked for and perhaps too evening dressy really?

or you could look at this its only available in a 20 but in this style the fabric might be more flattering in a 20
