is this the most gorgeous princess dressing up style dress you've ever seen or a horrible monstrosity that I shouldn't even contemplate

am so torn

NuttyMuffins Sun 25-Feb-07 15:44:04

I knew what that was going to be before i even clicked on it. I think they are gorgeous, have looked at them hundreds of times...never brought one though so no help there.

I really want to pretend I have only impeccable taste and say monstrosity but dd would love it and it's the sort of thing I would love to wear to a fancy dress party so I could swish all evening

Kbear Sun 25-Feb-07 15:45:43

it is wonderful, I want one in my size!!! buy it!

danceswithnewboots Sun 25-Feb-07 15:45:51

OOOh, with a much lower neckline for me, don't want to miss out on 'heaving bosom' opportunities either

Twiglett Sun 25-Feb-07 15:47:03

heheheheeh ... just to be completely clear I'm thinking of it for my almost 3 year old not me

Kbear Sun 25-Feb-07 15:47:45

have one each, you can be princesses together

NappiesGalore Sun 25-Feb-07 15:48:06

well.... i hate all that princessy stuff me, was always much more of a tomboy as a kid and i just dont 'get' all that pink stuff.... but, have to admit, i prob wouldve loved dressing up in that if id had it <oh, the shame>

MrsBadger Sun 25-Feb-07 15:50:30

it is lovely, esp if you're 3
but
does it go in the washing machine?
can you ride a tricycle in it?

just a thought...

Tamum Sun 25-Feb-07 15:52:28

Oh go on go on go on...

paulaplumpbottom Sun 25-Feb-07 15:53:34

I think its lovely

NappiesGalore Sun 25-Feb-07 15:54:20

everything goes in the washing machine. not everything survives but thats another matter

riding a trike in it might be a PITA but 3yos are a pretty tenacious lot

At first look I thought horrible but on closer inspection it's nice, buy it.

Jimjams2 Sun 25-Feb-07 15:56:23

It's vile, but I would have loved it aged 3.

TrinityRhino Sun 25-Feb-07 15:59:11

definitely gorgeous for a little girl for dressing up, she'll love it

Twiglett Sun 25-Feb-07 16:10:54

still torn

MrsBadger makes valid points ... I think this is the kind of dress they buy for US style kiddy beauty pageants rather than puddle and mud stomping (which lets face it is far more likely)


you see if they had one of those pointy hats with the veil hanging down the back to go with it .. it might just tip me over the edge

DD already said 'me like it'

MrsBadger Sun 25-Feb-07 16:38:20

I just can't help thinking how uncomfortable it looks to wear...
I know the Woolworths elasticated polyester ones aren't nearly as cute but they don't have an awkward zip up the back or a train to drag in puddles

and rememebr if she falls in love with it she will end up wearing it to Tesco, nursery, on the school run, in bed etc.

Twiglett Sun 25-Feb-07 17:14:31

yes you're right .. shame the elizabeth swann dress would be too huge for her though

will think on

motherinferior Sun 25-Feb-07 17:16:37

Sainsbury's has some nice - well, you know, nice in that way stuff.

Come round and play Dressing Up with DD2 - we have some adorable stuff, the most adorable (a mermaid frock with tail) coming from Tamum's DD.

Twiglett Sun 25-Feb-07 17:22:23

we'd love to

Tamum's so lovely isn't she

motherinferior Sun 25-Feb-07 17:22:51

She is indeed. It's an adorable frock.

Twiglett Sun 25-Feb-07 17:22:54

have just bought a sylvester the cat costume from ebay
