Bought the Phase Eight Verity here today for a wedding in October, it is indeed the most sublimely flattering dress in the universe. I'm just a little worried it is a bit too "womanly" iyswim. I'm 38, I know I'm no spring chick but there will be lots of fab outfits and I dont want to feel frumpy.

Anyways, I thought maybe these. Whaddayathink?

love them but no more shoes for me! Love the dress too.

BunnyLebowski Thu 04-Aug-11 14:02:36

Definitely They are fabulous! And what a bargain!

Will go great with the will look super foxy grin

Gillybobs Thu 04-Aug-11 14:03:01

DO you think they work together ok?

cyb Thu 04-Aug-11 14:03:56

yes they are just non matchy matchy enough to be great

you will not look frumpy

Unless you have a fascinator on your barnet

Gillybobs Thu 04-Aug-11 14:05:19

I can promise you, NO FASCINATOR : )

Cheers ladies, am pressing "ADD TO BASKET"

noddyholder Thu 04-Aug-11 14:05:41

Hello cyb!
No fascinator please. Like the way that dress is structured rather than drapey I am finding the drapey look being a bit of a fat disguise that has the opposite effect!

Hi nodders!

yes I'm ALL about the drape these days

I was looking a some vests in a shop the other day and I thought, I just cant wear a vest anymore. Muffin tops not withstanding, I need more forgiveness in my tee shirts

noddyholder Thu 04-Aug-11 14:09:18

I will send you all my old drapery grin

cyb Thu 04-Aug-11 14:11:17

Oh dont tell me you;ve gone all skinny on me

Gillybobs Thu 04-Aug-11 14:12:03

The dress is incredible on and is reduced to £88, I am a 16 and it is so difficult to find something that is forgiving and non frumpy. Highly recommend.

The shoes are on their way. Thanks again

noddyholder Thu 04-Aug-11 14:14:33

No not skinny but drapery the way to go 'round our way' if you have got rid of your velour track suit and are wanting a new look shock

For me I think any 'disguise' clothing is carte blanche for me to hot foot it to pizza express and stuff my face. Its like leggings instead of skinnies I think I am too greedy!

Brilliant outfit you will wow them .. thanks for replying on other thread.

Lizzylou Thu 04-Aug-11 18:28:18

Love the dress and the shoes, fab smile

Gillybobs Thu 04-Aug-11 19:08:54

CHeers for the feedback ladies, feeling good about it now!

SarkySpanner Thu 04-Aug-11 19:42:51

I want that dress angry

jumpinghoops Thu 04-Aug-11 20:04:21

I want those shoes in a 39 angry

Gillybobs Thu 04-Aug-11 20:07:22

They had a 39 and a 40 left...

TimeForCake Thu 04-Aug-11 20:58:53

Love that combination Gilly. Far from mumsy frumpsy as per other thread! Phase Eight have some gorgeous dresses...I need a wedding to go to! (It was me 5yrs ago today wink).

Gillybobs Thu 04-Aug-11 21:12:46

Happy Anniversary!

Ive not been to wedding for about 7 years (a full wedding that is) am very much looking forward. The bride (my cousin) has camper vans instead of wedding cars and a fab venue for reception so its all v exciting

TimeForCake Thu 04-Aug-11 21:28:58

Thank you! Bubbly is a flowing.

Love the camper van idea. I'd be very excited too - wedding ceremony (getting all misty eyed in the congregation, thinking back to own wedding etc,) bubbly after, wedding breakfast, speeches and then party! A drink, a dance, a new frock/shoes and I pressume no Dc for the night! Fun or what?!
Need to drop some wedding hints to friends/family I think.

Wow I am jealous of the dress and the shoes!
