I want a dress. Tunic shaped with funky sleeves, or one-shouldered, and shortish, or a  floaty kaftan looking thing where it's essentially a square of fabric with a neck cut out.  Do you know what I mean? Links please and girly talk about frocks.  biggrin.gif   biggrin.gif

What about this one?

There're lots and lots of pretty dresses on Shopstyle (and lots and lots of ugly ones, too).

This one on Asos is quite cute.

I really love this one from RunwayGirl

And Country Road have a slightly strange one-sleeved thing.

I can't decide whether I like this one or not:  http://www.etsy.com/listing/85615245/find-...n&ga_facet=

One shoulder, and rather elegant:  http://www.etsy.com/listing/85090705/one-s...n&ga_facet=

Or something more vivid:  http://www.etsy.com/listing/86382237/cockt...n&ga_facet=

You could always try Big W or Kmart for something that's trendy and great value, OP.

Oh. Wait. It's you.

Are you doing the other reunion? Is it worth a trip to Sydney?


I have no idea what you're talking about. Must have been left off the invite list for that one.  biggrin.gif  

Now go look at the Charlie Brown website, go on, you know you want to.  dev (6).gif

You could always go for a Herve Leger dress! The site linked has a fantastic sale on with prices 70% - 80% off.

My 20 year reunion is next year. I've decided I should start drastic weightloss measures now, so that I can fit into one of his dresses by then. Perhaps the fire engine red one.

Actually, I change my mind. I love this asymmetrical one.

Who's linking the Herve Leger? Sweetie? You got my body shape  alls. kinda wrong. Last Herve Leger style dress I had (which was Morrissey, not that he copies original.gif ), I gave to prizz.

Also, rewind to the 30 year bit about reunion, and remind yourself: mutton. lamb. Yeh but no.
