I have bought a dress. I would like you to tell me it's nice.

Please note: I have already bought and worn this dress so I can't take it back.

I'm having a niggle of doubt about it.

It is a Big Deal for me to buy a dress.

Please lie reassure me that it is a good dress and that I almost certainly look lovely in it.

The dress.

That looks like a fun summery dress. I think it looks nice. You almost certainly look lovely in it smile
Is it odd for you to buy a dress because you are a bit more tomboy ish? If so might be worth considering accessorising it in a way to make you feel more comfy. I like to have a bit of 'edge' to my outfits so might accessorise that with my black cardi with cut out lace back and my short battered black cowboy boots.

Yep. I like it!

Phew that's a relief I really do like it - I though I might have to lie for a minute grin

Oh good! Thank you all!

I appreciate your reassurances, lies or not.

Bit short for a pregnant woman! wink

Love it and want one! (trip into the city this week!)
Bet it looks lovely on! smile

It's very flattering. And quite useful.

phew! It is lovely.

Agree with Alpine, you'll never squash your huge pregnant belly in that in a couple of months.

Nice move wink Glad to see you upping your game on the 'timing couldn't be worse' front.

I almost bought that dress!

It's gorgeous (biased, obviously) - hope you get lots of wear out of it smile

BUT... that zip is good for breastfeeding access in 9 months time.

<taps temple> I'm thinking ahead.
