<gasp> have I found a Per Una Speziale dress that's actually wearable?

<<slaps HF with a wet kipper>>

Hideous, just hideous.

I'd be slapping you as requested. Unfortunately I've been unable to stop crying since seeing this.

love the pattern but it is too short and the empire line and bust/arm bits are reminescent of some sort of regency strumpet.
there is a review about an exactly matching magenta pashmina and garden parties that makes me crack up.
i think its the sort of thing chrstine hamilton would wear

I'll get me coat grin

I've been looking at that many maxi dresses today I've obviously gone fashion blind!

The reviews are certainly fascinating. As with all the rave reviews for the truly hideous blue swirly kaftan/tent thing modelled by Twiggy earlier this year, they show there is a whole parallel universe of Per Una lovers out there. Which I suppose makes sense, as M and S must have a market for this stuff or they wouldn't go on producing it - but is still pretty mind-boggling.

Looks a bit saggy-boobed and unflattering to me, sorry.

Never wear anything with scenery on it. Never.

It's just a dress version of these
