Help me to wow!

I'm having a big birthday party this year (yes - it's one of those birthdays) I have hired a rather grand venue and am thinking of asking all guests to wear black/white whilst I make my grand entrance in ..... red!

If I go ahead, I will need a stunning red dress, very dressy but not full length. I am a size 12/14, great boobs, but not great legs, very long curly hair (brunette). I need to be able to dance to cheesy 80s music in it.

Any ideas? Am prepared to spend if it has wow factor.
Thanks

crikey you're confident grin

angrypixie Thu 10-Sep-09 13:00:28

Oh dear, didn't mean to sound OTT but confident, yes I guess I am,

missmelly Thu 10-Sep-09 13:06:57

I meant it in a good way! I'm not unconfident, but I'm one of the types that would rather sneak in and not be noticed, iyswim

having a look if i can see any suitable dresses for you...

No help on the find a dress front but just wanted to say....

Go, girl

It's your birthday. You can dictate the dress code and of course you want to be the centre of attention

Thanks, tulpe. MissMelly you had me worried that I sounded like a complete cow grin but you can't sneak in on your birthday. Thanks for looking for me, I'm drawing a blank.

www.net-a-porter.com/product/46748certainly has the wow factor, from good boobs I wasn't sure if you meant perky or big.

this??

this looks slightly seethrough?? would def make a statement

angrypixie Thu 10-Sep-09 13:17:47

Ooh thanks, It's very wow but don't think I want to draw attention to my hips and thighs, definite worst bit.

32DD so pretty big but fairly upright, good scaffolding helps these days though.

angrypixie Thu 10-Sep-09 13:19:56

Thanks MissMelly strapless not good, surprised myself by really liking your second one (not because it's seethrough though) grin

Do need to be able to wear a decent bra though.

missmelly Thu 10-Sep-09 13:21:04

bet this would look fab grin

angrypixie Thu 10-Sep-09 13:24:26

too little girlie?

NoahAmin Thu 10-Sep-09 13:24:49

oh i hate this colour thing.
SO cheesey

angrypixie Thu 10-Sep-09 13:28:12

Now that is stunning Miss M.

well then I suggest that you don't have a colour thing for any of your parties NoahAmin.

missmelly Thu 10-Sep-09 13:29:55

wow i love this but wouldnt be able to wear a bra

brimfull Thu 10-Sep-09 13:31:17

will you have a red carpet as well

and hire paparazzi

missmelly Thu 10-Sep-09 13:33:15

another, with one strap

angrypixie Thu 10-Sep-09 13:33:45

That's OK, I haven't invited you Noah At least I don't think I have grin

angrypixie Thu 10-Sep-09 13:35:50

MissM I think you've done it!!!!! I love that first Debenhams one. Maybe a bra with thin red straps would work? I adore it.

missmelly Thu 10-Sep-09 13:37:14

that's def gorgeous.. looks like it would suit a good pair of knockers too

angrypixie Thu 10-Sep-09 13:37:30

Thank you, you are my new best friend, and of course invited to the party grin

missmelly Thu 10-Sep-09 13:39:08

haha thank you

hope you have a fab birthday

(I think the red carpet idea is a winner too... )

Thanks Clure the ASOS dresses are all too short, my legs aren't great. The LK Bennett is great but still runner up to the Debenhams dress so far.
