Thanks sunnyk and mochara, i havent bought a new dress in so long but i love this! One thing i forgot to ask are monsoons sizes accurate, as in a 14 is def a 14, im a 14 but need a 16 in some karen millen stuff as they do be too tight iykwim

Karen Millen sizes can be that bit smaller than other shops I find so I'd say you would be ok with a size 14 from Monsoon but maybe go in and try something just to be sure....

It's lovely. I don't like the necklace with it on the manequin though. I'd go simple, nice earrings but no necklace. Enough going on with the halter neck aspect. It's not current season, well, at least I haven't seen it in the current season's collection and I am always in Monsoon.
