Also...

We have a wedding to go to in May, and, having left all my nice dresses and skirts in NZ, I don't have anything to wear! (and I mean that genuinely, not in the whingey "I have nothing to wear" way when i actually have plenty of options that I just don't want to wear. The only dress I own is solid black, and I don't really feel ok with wearing all black to an afternoon wedding).
I would love to buy something from Etsy (or get something made via Etsy Alchemy). Something a bit different. Something unusual and pretty that I'll get a lot of wear out of. Something that won't break the bank (that's the hard part). It seems that everything in the shops right now has an odd 80's feel to it that I'm not loving. Or really shiny and formal, and I don't want anyone thinking that I think I'm a bridesmaid.
Any suggestions (either UK or internet-shopping based)? Right now I love this, but it's a bit out of the price range (that should give you an indication of how small my pitiful budget really is).

I know it's not Etsy, but I did find some nice wrap dresses at a good price on Amazon. I would totally wear it to an afternoon wedding. :)

Maybe wear the black, but get a really brightly coloured sash to jazz it up?

I agree with Katie - plus some funky jewellery from somewhere cheap like Accessorize and suddenly you've got a whole new outfit!
Otherwise, try ASOS as they always have cheap stuff or good bargains.

Love that Etsy dress - as an aside - grrrr to you for introducing me to Etsy a while back in your blog - now I can't stop lusting over all the cute baby stuff!
