I've really wanted to buy a dress for a while now, but I don't know how to find one. Sadly, I gained some weight over the past few years, maybe because of my necessary, new coffee (with creamer... that's what does it, I suppose) habit. I do some exercise, but it hasn't been enough to lose very much. So I might have had an easier time finding something three years ago, but I guess I'm now about a 42 waist. (even though my size for pants is much smaller) That's more or less what the tape measure says.
And... I have no clue where to find anything adorable that won't break the bank! The only things I've found have been a few $90+ lolita style dresses... almost perfect, but I very, very much don't want to spend that kinda money! (I've spent too much lately!) I've also seen a few drab, unexciting cheaper things.. no pretty colors, and stuff like that. I guess I just want something in cute colors/patterns that doesn't show lots of skin, though short sleeve is fine.
Where to look? Can anyone help? Websites? Specific dresses? Anything? Please?
Please don't suggest going to a store. Not possible. Has to be online. Discreet shipping would be nice, though it's not like I have to have a discussion with the UPS guy or whatever, So it could be a gift, for all he'd know.
