    OH (whose patience for shopping exceeds mine by a long way) and I went shopping this afternoon for a dress to wear in the evenings on holiday - dinner is quite dressy.

    The dress we found is gorgeous, if rather pricey. Just found it online: … lour=black

      Buy it. Nuff said. Gorgeous.

      I think so anyway and I'd wear it smile

      *maybe that's going to put L/Girl off ... a frog in a dress*

      Completely outrageously fab. Perfect for evening, your hair color and skin tone. I don't think you could've chosen better if you had a gay dresser. LOL

        Thanks! OH loves shopping for clothes (for me) but he isn't gay. I'm convinced of that (-:

    Wow looks splendid, had seen a similar piece in debenhams. Lovely sequenced lace in black it was. You would look a charm, buy it.

    It is gorgeous, and the sheer sleeves are lovely. It was more expensive than I intended, but I'll wear it a lot, I hope!

    The sizes there are British sizes - I'm a British size 12, but I think it's different in American sizes, perhaps 4 less? So a 12 in UK terms might be an 8 in the USA? I'm not sure, though.

    Nice dress.  How much is it in American dollars?  Don't have a clue of the exchange rate.

  13. LondonGirl profile image85
    LondonGirlposted 9 years ago

    There are usually about 3 dollars to £2, give or take a few pennies / cents here and there. So £165 is rather expensive, about $240
