I usually go to Evans, tesco true section or use Marisota online.

Im not fussy with colours, if I like it I buy it.

There is a nice orange beaded dress on the Evans website but I would want to wear jeans or something under it but not sure if it would look right.

thats really pretty dress alex.

have you thought about maybe putting some black skinny/straight leg jeans under it and then picking out one of the colours in top (maybe the red)for shoes

I also like THIS in both the silver/grey with white trousers and in black with black trousers but then I have the problem what kind of shoes do I wear. I dont do heels because of my height!! (at 5ft 11 I dont really want to be any taller!) So I have never worn heels and cant walk in them!

I am such a fuss pot

Hope you find something you like hun. I think the choices so far have been ace Very happy I really like the orange/peach one. It is a nice cheerful colour too. I agree with ellee aswell, i'm sure you could put some skinny/straight leg jeans under it Smile They are all lovely so far though hun. Let us know what you choose in the end Xx

I like all three of the choices that have been posted on here but my favorate is the orangish/peach one! Very hippie/bohemian so you know that I'd love that one!

I really love the blouse that Lucy posted too, sexy and sophisticated and I love the back of it!!
