I wanted to love the Monsoon Peya dress but although the colour is great, embroidery is lovely, sleeves a length I prefer and the neckline flattering it’s just not right. It doesn’t hang well, there’s too much fabric gathered round the waist , I don’t like the big flouncy frill and the fabric looks cheap and it’s a couple of inches too short.
So please help me find a gorgeous alternative!

@Standrewsschool Thank you so much for all those suggestions. Sadly none are leaping out at me in the way the Peya did. It doesn’t have to look similar, but I don’t want ditsy and I do like the look and feel of velvet.

Here’s another that appeals to me, but £179 is a lot more than I want to pay!

@Singalongsingsong that £179 turquoise one is beautiful! May I ask where it is from?

My favourite dress at the moment is this one, far too much for me to pay for a dress but I keep my eye on it in case it goes on sale!

@RelentlessForwardProgress It is lovely isn’t it? It’s Peruvian Connection

Try looking at East or Aspiga if you haven’t already

@waltzingparrot thank you for the link. Some nice dresses on that Etsy page - I hadn’t thought about looking on Etsy.

@NadiaVulvokov thank you. I had looked at East, but not familiar with Aspiga so enjoyed looking there - definitely somewhere I need to keep an eye on as my sort of clothes.
