Every so often a function arises that forces us to get the long gowns out. The length of the dress may only be to hide the lily white legs, it could be for a white tie event, the Opera or perhaps dinner with the Duchess of Cambridge, whatever the reason, when they do crop up I know it can be a task and a half to find a non-frumpy, well fitted floor length dress that wont break the bank. If we could all wear Alexander McQueen it might be slightly easier to find, but seen as you aren’t exactly going to wear it that often (unless you are a regular at these sort of events) then it definitely is not an investment piece. If you are one of the lucky, or unlucky (depending on how you view it) ladies that has a fancy “do” in the diary, fear not, I have done the hard work and hopefully you will slot right into one of the fabulous floor skimming finds.
