It's creased even in those photos.

Havingkittens Mon 23-May-11 09:41:32

Good for those with toddlers or babies though. You'd never notice if it had sick on it.

At last - a skirt designed for having a period grin

MrsDistinctlyMintyMonetarism Mon 23-May-11 09:45:56

here for that just fallen into the shredder look...

Mumelie Mon 23-May-11 09:48:46

words fail me shock

MrsDistinctlyMintyMonetarism Mon 23-May-11 09:49:25

Or for those of us that always wanted to dress up as the toilet roll dolly

MrsDistinctlyMintyMonetarism Mon 23-May-11 09:54:59

Do you like Demis Roussos?

grin

MollysChamber Mon 23-May-11 09:56:09

Who buys this stuff???

Fimbo Mon 23-May-11 09:59:31

It will all be reduced to a fiver in the sales. I have M & S as a like on fb and they recently showed some of their new collection coming in. There is a blue dress coming with red sleeves. Beyond hideous.

Fimbo Mon 23-May-11 10:02:18

Hmmm

ChinnyReckon Mon 23-May-11 10:07:55

Arf at MrsDistinctly grin

georgie22 Mon 23-May-11 10:09:48

It's interesting that that lovely frilly specimen is out of stock in size 22. The mind boggles!!

bananamonkey Mon 23-May-11 10:21:09

I love that Demis Roussos one, I am dying to buy it for a fancy dress party grin

polyhymnia Mon 23-May-11 10:47:29

They made a big feature of the Roussos one in the recent ad campaign, with Twiggy modelling it. It was on a mannequin in my dreary local store in all its horror.

The really extraordinary thing is, if you look at the reviews for it, loads of people seem to love it and have bought it for special occasions - other than 70s themed parties. But, I suppose if you even think about buying that sort of thing in the first place, it must be because you like it .......

polyhymnia Mon 23-May-11 10:50:25

Yes, just checked - 79 reviews of the kaftan, all raves. Can they be serious?

spooktrain Mon 23-May-11 11:02:43

and for those with a very heavy flow
