Bought it on a bit of a whim really. I was introduced to the site by a poster on here, and have been coveting the dresses ever since! I suddenly wondered today if they had any on sale, and they had this one. I'm 46, size 12, shoulder length brown hair. Just wondering what you S&B folk think.....

Lovely dress smile

It is stunning isn't it. Ordered the 12 and 14 so hopefully, one will fit. Not wanting to get ahead of myself, but what shoes would you put with it? And bag?

Gorgeous dress. It will look great.

Lovely stuff on that site. There are some beautiful jackets and shrugs.

I know, the designs are just lovely. I'm just hoping it looks as nice on. As an aside I just looked on eBay and there's a seller selling a ton of her dresses for £20-£30! Not the one I ordered though.

I can't understand the sizing table - it doesn't like dul so can it work out what 1,2,3,4 equate to in normal uk sizing. Am a 12-14, does anyone so is which size I should order? Not seen site before, love the dresses!
Thanks

beautiful. Lovely neckline and ribbon

itstheyearzero Thu 23-Jun-16 18:01:25

1=size 12, 2=size 14.

itstheyearzero Thu 23-Jun-16 18:07:17

Oh no sorry, its 2=12 and 3=14. Ignore my previous post!

I like it. It sounds like it will compliment your colouring.

Lovely dress smile

I like that. It's elegant and you will look lovely. Because the dress is patterned I would go easy on jewellery and accessories.

Oh my days! What a fab site!

I think I will be having a spend up here

That's lovely, I have a couple of her dresses and I love them.

itstheyearzero Thu 23-Jun-16 20:10:45

Sorry Tate! I hope your credit card doesn't suffer too much! Nigella, what's the sizing like? I'm a large 12, not quite a 14 in most shops so I ordered both to be on the safe side.

What lovely stuff.smile

Thanks for size guide info.

Oh my, who prettiness! My brother is getting married in Sept and they're having a very English country garden/marquee wedding. Please will you report back on sizing and quality?

CheeseEloise1 Fri 24-Jun-16 00:35:56

I just got these ones At Next and they are so comfortable. They would go well with the dress and are so cheap for such good quality
