..dark rose red colour - to be a bridesmaid in. There's 2 of us and we both live outside the UK so buying online best (as long as it can be shipped overseas).

I am crappy shopper, barely having progressed beyond TopShop so need serious help...!

Any ideas of where I can look??

I was just hanging up a gorgeous deep red dress that doesn't fit and never did tbh. Size 10 by any chance? grin

What is your budget? M&S or designer?

lots here

grin I'd squeeze into a 10 but am really a 12. Well, 12 in TopShop but 10 in Monsoon, if you know what I mean. Don't know the size of the other bridesmaid though, never having met her, and she's supposed to have one the same, I think, so I probably can't have yours. Although I bet it's lovely.

Budget - dunno, about 100quid? Give or take a bit?

oooh thanks! These are lovely...Debenhams doesn't deliver outside the UK though. But maybe we can get them delivered to the is after Xmas and I'm back for Xmas. Is cutting it fine tho.

Am liking the short Karen Millen ones too...

FabBaker - grin of course I want it just for me! But probably 2 dark red evening dresses is 2 too many for someone who only goes to an evening dress type event about once a year

Thanks Monkey I live in Europe and the other one lives in Asia...J Crew is US only, right??

Ronaldinhio - those are all lovely but...too pink, I AM too big of boob and am also far too old and haggard ;)
