What do you think. Just made £50 on Ebay and am seriously tempted....

Blimey it's not that. Bad

But you could get better for 150 quid

Maybe if you are very tall, skinny and cool you could pull it off.

Dear billsticker, thank you. Show me better..... I am obviously misguided and need fashion help grin

If you are cool and edgy and arty it could work (hipster girls in my part of town definitely could pull it off), but if you are just a normal mortal, it's a bit daunting.

I actually think it looks okay on the model, wasn't keen when just seeing it close up though. I agree there are other things I'd probably choose first for that money but then again it would make me look like a sack of potatoes!

That's something Miss Jean Brodie would wear.

Are you Alexa Chung OP? If so, defo get it, you'll look fantastic. If not, best not.

I had to look, thinking 'poor op, it can't be THAT bad'.

But JESUS, my eyes. No.

I will be completely honest. I think its very, very ugly.
It looks like clichéd outfit of a frumpy librarian in the 1960s, all you need to asscessorize it is a plait coiled into a bun and glasses on a chain. smile
But hey if that's your look then more power to ya!

I quite like it - wouldn't wear it myself but can easily imagine it on a shoreditch person. It kind of reminds me of an Orla Kiely dress and her dresses are a lot funkier than the oilskin bags (and not done to death). However judging by a lot of the reactions you might be able to trace its downwards trajectory through the sales and snaffle for a more bargainous price!

grin I've never had so many responses to a post. Just a shame it's to out me as a wannabe librarian... Isn't geek chic in? grin

Oh I only do judging, can't recommend stuff to save my life grin

I ordered this earlier! Loved the look of it online but after reading all these comments, I'm now thinking perhaps the sun has gone to my head!
