    Return it and buy it again!

    I tried a dress of my sis's on last night that I wanted to wear and it was too small :sigh: need to lose another inch and a half for it to zip up

    I was so convinced it would fit and was really annoyed then realised it was a 14 not a 16 like i though, so wasnt as bad as i thought! Still would like to wear it and have a month and a bit to get into it!

    Awww I'm so jealous I work from home have never met any of my 200+ colleagues, only chat to them via msn when working I have no Xmas party to go to, my partner works for Birmingham City Council, he doesnt get a party either :(
    This year is the first time in a long time I fancy getting dressed up without feeling like a dogs dinner

    Thanks hun! My dress is in an 18 though and it fits at the moment, but had a dreadful feeling earlier that it's going to be too big, so I've taken it back!

    I've replaced it with this one though:

    Black floral embroidered prom dress - Evening & party dresses - Dresses - Women -

    It was too tight in an 18 a month ago but is lovely and snug now! Yay! And it means I've saved £21! I'm going to be doing some self-sabotage over the next few weeks though so that I don't lose any more weight ;) xxx

    Beautiful dresses girls! We're only going to Frankie and Benny's for dinner (and after WI too, so I can scoff!:)) so I think I'm gonna go for an old fave - red and black butterfly top/dress, with leggings and cutesy shoes!:)

    Help me decide which dress to pick!!

    We've got our office Christmas party (which I organise) in a local bar/club with about 150-200 people.
    Our theme is 'dress to impress' as it's our last xmas party before the office closes next year :(

    So I've ordered some dresses from Dorothy Perkins but can't decide which one to go for:

    http://www.dorothyperkins.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId =33053&storeId=12552&productId=1962773&langId=-1&categoryId=&parent_category_rn=

    http://www.dorothyperkins.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId =33053&storeId=12552&productId=2070706&langId=-1&categoryId=&parent_category_rn=

    Help me girls!!
    Really pleased though as ordered 5 in total - all size 16s and they all fit - yay!!

    Well done you hun! I prefer the bustier dress personally, I think it would be a very flattering fit with the gathered detail at the front :) xx

    I really like both of them (and I'll need to find a dress for my works do) but I think I agree with Sian on the gathering being flattering.

    I like them both too :)

    Our works do is at a comedy club this year, should be fun - and no need to dress up posh - I am personally looking forward to wearing a nice pair of jeans I've had for nearly 4 years and never been able to fit into, I think I *will* be able to fit in them this year! Hope so anyway - otherwise I don't know what I'll be wearing :D
