I was waiting for the sale, but the black isnt reduced by much and is £92 I can see the reviews are all good and I would love to get one. However I've had a bit of a spend up in the sales so can't really justify the cost. Has anyone got one? Is it worth the money? Or has are there any similar, but less expensive one out ther?

Yes, I have it and its GORGEOUS. v v flattering and lovely thick jersey which holds everything in.

Kids love beans on toast, and you can look svelte and foxy serving them up!

Its a great dress, honestly.

It's a fabulous dress and will look stylish for quite a while so a good investment. I have it in the blue and have worn it for a wedding and a couple of smart lunches. It got compliments on all occasions.

the question is - what will your retinue of pageboys wear?

oops - wrong thread!

Like the idea of pageboys in the drape dress.

The blue is a little less expensive, so will think on. Problem is I've bought from the White company, Boden, gap, Zara and mango sales just in the last ten days and bought the IO pencil skirt. Hmm, not sure I can justify it.
