They're doing it on purpose.
There can be no other reason.

Wtf is that grin I went into m &s for some decent 3/4 length trousers and the absolute state of some of the clothes in there was awful!

Sawdustinmyhair Sat 27-May-17 08:59:35

I think it would look okay on.

This is worse:

Nah. That top isn't a patch on that pink nylon monstrosity.

nebulae Sat 27-May-17 09:01:41

I quite like it, I'd wear that. What's so wrong with it?

chickpeaburger Sat 27-May-17 09:01:45

I was in to return some towels yesterday and couldn't believe the sights. Made me smile

MissBax Sat 27-May-17 09:02:17

The top doesn't offend me. That pink dress however... 😷

chickpeaburger Sat 27-May-17 09:02:55

Really Nebulae shock

That's......

interesting. Not in a good way.

But with these things, I'm often not sure if it's just that I'm out of touch with current fashions.

I was in M&S the other day and I actually saw someone look at that Pink Dress of Ugliness. She made a beeline for it in fact. confused

LiviaDrusillaAugusta Sat 27-May-17 09:04:56

I have a top very similar to that.. thanks OP

WillowWeeping Sat 27-May-17 09:05:20

Both the dress and top hideous.

Conversely I bought the most comfortable and prettiest bra a couple of weeks ago and now have five of them having binned a huge selection of mediocre bras.

That top - Holly Hobbit

KnockMeDown Sat 27-May-17 09:05:44

It looks like they were looking to save money by using up the scraps left lying about. You can't blame them, given the latest figures grin

Lucked Sat 27-May-17 09:06:06

I almost posted about that top. It made me wonder if their reviews are genuine as so many were calling it lovely, the reviewer all seemed to be in an old erage bracket than me but still my not very stylish mum in her 70s would know that is hideous.

MachineBee Sat 27-May-17 09:06:42

Totally agree about the pink dress being a monstrosity. It took me back to the early seventies and C&A the crimplene turquoise hot pants I was bought by my DGM when I was 10. grin

Sawdustinmyhair Sat 27-May-17 09:07:11

Oh man, I hadn't even seen that thread (it just came up when I was looking for new work things).

Normally M&S is about the only place I buy clothes, as I am short and dumpy, but I might have to start going to ... young people's shops.

Didiusfalco Sat 27-May-17 09:08:27

I don't think that's actually that bad. I had a £5 off tops with my sparks card so looked through all of them - there's definitely worse out there.

Lucked Sat 27-May-17 09:09:55

Actually if you go to m&s new in women's clothing it is awash with awful styles in terrible prints. I can't get over the prints they are pushing this year surely people aren't going to buy these clothes.

nebulae Sat 27-May-17 09:10:30

Really Nebulae

Yep really. I'd wear it and not give a stuff if others didn't like it. The pink dress on the other hand...

LiviaDrusillaAugusta Sat 27-May-17 09:11:26

Should I burn the one that's similar? I didn't realise that people would be mentally ripping apart my fashion sense confused

Didiusfalco Sat 27-May-17 09:13:54

No Livia it really is totally fine - I wouldn't bat an eyelid at someone wearing that. (Disclaimer: I do own things from per una which I believe is a no-no)

Fgs yes! Kill it with fire!
