    Hi all,

    I'm off to a hen party on Saturday night. I really want to buy a new dress but don't want it to be too expensive etc. I've seen a nice dress it's a black ruffled dress. I'm a size 16 ....... what do you think about ruffles and being a size 16? Is it a total no go?

    If anyone has any tips or ideas or even shops I can get a decent dress from i'd be greatful.

    Thanks!! :D

    I have a top in this layered design and I thought it would make me look really fat but it was totally flattering. I would try it on first if I were you and see what it looks like when it's on

    I have a tkmaxx next to my work but I can never ever find anything - maybe it's because I don't look properly. ha ha. I will have to have a look tomorrow when i'm on my lunch.

    I'm now thinking the top with jeans hmmmm decisions decisions!! lol x

    I too love the top, but I think the dress is really girly & flirty - perfect for a hen weekend. Maybe team with high heels, chunky jewellary, fake tan etc.
    Let us know what you decide.
