Oh bloody hell!! I bought the wrong length dress for (my first!) upcoming posh work dinner/dance - help! 2 weeks today!!
I was un reliably informed that I needed to wear a full length dress for my DH's work's 100th anniversary dinner/dance.
I bought a gorgeous Monsoon floor length dress (and all the accessories to match) and felt really special in it.
I now find out from one of the women in the office that they are actually all wearing knee length cocktail dresses!!
I need to find (online pref as work 6 days a week and live in a small Scottish town) a dress that'll co-ordinate with all the accs I bought - plus we ordered DH Highland Dress to co-ordinate too(Platinum Pride) and can't change that now I don't think...
The shape I am looking for is like this Monsoon dress or could do more strappy but would need a shrug thing - in lilac/purple/grey or black at a push, upto around £80 and in size 18/20.
I was nervous enough about this whole do, my first one and I don't know anyone to talk to and also found out we have to sit away from our spouses and now I am just shitting myself over this at the last minute.
