I’m going to an evening function in a couple of weeks, and I need to “look the part,” as they say. I thought I might treat myself to a nice maxi dress; I always wear trousers and a top to these events, and then I feel incredibly under dressed when I get there.

I had a look at the House of Fraser website, and have come up with a couple of options…

white maxi dress






I love this one, but I’m not sure if the colour would be a bit much… also it looks like it might require a fake tan! I love the cut and the style though; perfect for my figure, and it would hide my biscuit belly quite well!






maxi dress






This one is gorgeous; I love that it’s a little different with the sleeves and back. It looks like this one might also be quite good at disguising the old biscuit belly too! The colour is probably more my thing; I’m ok with a brightly coloured top or handbag, but when it comes to a dress I’d rather be a little less “loud!”






bright maxi dress






This is a real wish list dress. It’s gorgeous, isn’t it? It’s the most expensive dress (it’s Ralph Lauren), and it looks like it’s fairly close fitting. That along with the bright colour mean I would probably never wear it – but it’s just beautiful!









What do you think? Which dress is best?
