Aworryingtrend Thu 21-Jul-11 10:35:01

Not frumpy but the print does look a bit creepy IMO!

You sound like Mo from Eastenders with your 'nice bargains' archanat!

QuimFabray Thu 21-Jul-11 14:44:43

I do like the print, but I don't like clothes that are 95% viscose <sweaty>

archanat10 Thu 21-Jul-11 14:52:23

indeed dexter. if you require i can help out. I am an angel in disguise! smile

PetiteMum Thu 21-Jul-11 19:12:39

Archanat, I can't view the links you posted? Hmmmmm. The thing is it looks so flattering on! I just feel old in it (maybe I am at 32?)

Monty27 Thu 21-Jul-11 19:16:50

Petite I'm much older than you and I don't like it, sorry. <honest>

I like it.

polyhymnia Fri 22-Jul-11 10:40:21

It's not as bad as most Per Una but I'm afraid I really don't like it - and I'm much older than you. Really think you could do better.

piratecat Fri 22-Jul-11 10:52:32

the neck line is frumpy, it just doesn't do what it's trying to do imo.

SexyDomesticatedDab Fri 22-Jul-11 10:57:04

If it looks flattering on you then why not? How can the neckline be frumpy - you mean its not low enough??

noddyholder Fri 22-Jul-11 11:04:27

this is lovely. Friend had it on the other day with plimsolls and I was surprised it was per una. The one in the OP is a bit bland

archanat10 Fri 22-Jul-11 11:22:16

Nah, i am nt a huge fan of dresses at M&S .Its like they don't know simplicity, elegance and in-fashion.sorry but noddyholder , i dnt like it

noddyholder Fri 22-Jul-11 11:38:04

No need to be sorry its only clothes!

peasandlove Fri 22-Jul-11 12:31:36

erm, Per Una, not good

WhoseGotMyEyebrows Fri 22-Jul-11 13:11:22

I think it's fine really. Depends on how it looks on and how you feel in it. Some ould carry it off and some couldn't. If it makes you feel old then don't go there.

It is frumpy I'm afraid. Horrid. Unless you are 70.
