For someone with a 'quirky' (bleurgh) sense of style but history of occasional questionable taste.

Dress.

I'm drawn to it. But I suspect most people will think it's minging.

I'm a size 12, post DC belly but fine with good pants, good everything else.

Quite pale but bit of a tan at the minute and suit high contrast(so either black or vivid jewel toned clothing, strong lipsticks).

Is it awful?! <<girds loins>>

I think it's beautiful.

I think you know don't you...

Cookingongas Thu 25-Aug-16 22:18:32

I like it. But I don't think I'm in a position to judge any style choice tbh

AnchorDownDeepBreath Thu 25-Aug-16 22:18:56

It's not half as bad as I expected after reading your OP.

I love the print but hate the hemline.

MoreGilmoreGirls Thu 25-Aug-16 22:19:13

I think fugly, sorry

I like the print, and don't mind the hem, but suspect the fabric won't be v nice.

On balance it's ok...if anything I think it's a bit nothingy. I was expecting something quite ehhh or ooooh. It doesn't stand out to me.

NotTodaySatan Thu 25-Aug-16 22:20:41

Ha I suspect your replies are going to mirror my internal dialogue 😂

wine dare I say that even though I've never worn something with that type of hem I thought it looked almost......Westwood-ian? Probably not.

Tiggeryoubastard Thu 25-Aug-16 22:22:08

Love it but for the hemline.

NotTodaySatan Thu 25-Aug-16 22:22:22

pictish I though everyone would say it was too loud/busy!

Oh and if anyone can find me another, nicer 'quirky' dress for less than £40 I'd be eternally grateful wine.

Blackberryandapplejam Thu 25-Aug-16 22:24:29

I like it. And may well buy it too.

Queenbean Thu 25-Aug-16 22:26:36

It's neither here nor there. I wouldn't vomit if you wore it and walked past me in the street but I wouldn't be creaming myself over it either.

Don't like the hem though. If you like it then go for it. It's not offensive.

Boltonlass1972 Thu 25-Aug-16 22:30:26

I like it and would wear it but I thought hanky hems were 'so 3 years ago darling' ?

NotTodaySatan Thu 25-Aug-16 22:32:43

Bolton I've no idea what was in and when to be fair. I just buy what I like. When I'm capable of making a decision that is.

I was trying to branch away from my going out uniform of 1940's tea dress (NOT those Lindybop numbers, proper tea dresses) + heels.

Maybe I should stick with it!

I know you said No Lindybop but I got 2 dresses from there recently which are anazing (and not to fancy dress-ish) sorry I can't do links but one is the Tabby dress got the green) and the other is the Ariel dress (in red) Both are fab on and were sale bargains to boot.

Sootsprites Tue 30-Aug-16 18:34:42

Love it!

Vintagegirl1 Tue 30-Aug-16 18:34:55

Sorry didn't answer your question-I think the dress is fugly although I think that brand do occasionally do some nice things.

Floisme Tue 30-Aug-16 19:24:08

I really like the print and the colours, less keen on the hem but don't hate it. The deciding factor would be the fabric.

Botanicbaby Tue 30-Aug-16 19:31:36

Agree with most others, print is ok but hate the hanky hemline!

ChicRock Tue 30-Aug-16 19:34:10

It's fugly.

And 100% polyester.

No.

ErrolTheDragon Tue 30-Aug-16 19:35:38

Its ok but you might find something else on the new look sale rail (its the only place my DD ever finds a dress she likes)

fruityb Tue 30-Aug-16 19:40:23

I love it but 100% polyester would be enough for me to turn it down. I can't wear the stuff I might as well wear a bin bag for the sweaty element!

Otherwise I'd have snapped it up I really like it.
