    Hi
    I'm looking for a prom dress for the summer, but have no idea where to get it from. All the places I've found have extremely glittery dresses and I don't want anything sparkly. What I have in mind is a dark colour, long dress with a leg slit or maybe low back. Any ideas where to get it?!

    The usual websites: asos, topshop, miss selfridge etc. Not sure about prom dresses myself so it would be worth just shopping around

    Hey I'm in the same position, whatever you do DON'T order from okdress online! It is sooo bad, they make you pay a lot for a dress that looks like a year 3's art project(well mine did anyway). The dresses don't even look like the pictures plus they make you pay an extra £15 after you've ordered for delivery so you essentially pay for delivery twice. This is the same with most websites such as dylanqueen so I recommend searching for some actual stores near you instead of online!
    edit- this isn't the same for all dresses, ASOS, Boohoo etc. are all reputable and very good.

    Have you tried Harrod's? They may seem extortionate, but you won't be left disappointed - believe me! :yep:
