    Found out last night that the 'do' I'm going to at the Dorchester next week is full length dresses only. I didn't realise how posh it's going to be I (should have realised given that Princess Anne is going to be there along with most of Team GB from the Olympics)

    So I need your help guys. I have the magid knickers, all I need is the dress to go over them.

    I'm thinking of red as I've worn it a few times recently and people say it suits me. Plus, it's a nice change from my usual black.

    If anyone has seen anything that you think would suit a 5ft 9, size 10/12 busty brunette (that's me by the way lol) please post links etc.

    Really appreciate your help on this one. Don't worry if it's not red. It's just a starting point.

    Better get my bottom in gear and get something sorted.

    Now, what about the shoes........!

    Oh Rachel, you do know I love to dress hunt. Here's a few I have found!

    [​IMG]
    This one is from Monsoon! As is this one . . .

    This one is from Littlewoods and is the same one I showed Anna, but in fairness, I love this dress!! I think everyone (including me) should get one!
    [​IMG]
    And this one is from Debenhams!
    [​IMG]

    Ok, done now!!

    If you go onto the Debenhams or Monsoon websites, there are like hundreds of dresses on there, and if I put all the ones that I thought were pretty on here, I think I would have created the longest Post in the world!!

    Right, I am going to do some work now!

    thanks vintella and bekimo. V-bit out of my price range I think even though I've said sod the budget! Gorgeous dresses though. Maybe if I win the lottery this weekend?
    Going to have a look round the shops on Friday (away working this week) Will probably spend the night in my hotel room looking for dresses on the internet. It's so much fun!!

    Two dresses from Littlewoods - one red and one teal. And both 45.

    I think the teal one is gorgous.
