I've had my eye on the Jasmin dress forever, it's gorgeous. Also like the Go Dotty silk dress.

I'm soo tempted.

Dam you.
Now I have to explain why I need 4 new dresses to the bank manager.

zanz1bar Mon 26-Sep-11 18:11:13

Right I went for Paige, Catherine wheels, willow and Millie skirt.
One of these had better look awful and be returned or my family is on mince for a month.

I got Robyn in black and lived in it this summer.

TracyK Mon 26-Sep-11 18:15:31

I must resist!
My friend was here this afternoon and I was showing her the dresses I have in the wardrobe to wear this autumn/winter. I have 14! oops - got a bit carried away.

MissBeehiving Mon 26-Sep-11 18:16:01

I'm almost certainly returning -n-one of the 3 I ordered (Catherine, Brooke, Yasmina).

IrmaLittleteapot Mon 26-Sep-11 18:19:19

I have the Catherine Wheels in blue. It looks A.M.A.Z.I.N.G on. But it does come up a bit small.

Will be checking out the sale link now smile

Oh shit. grin

legoqueen Mon 26-Sep-11 18:51:08

What is the sizing like?

Northumberlandlass Mon 26-Sep-11 21:05:04

Having to get the aforementioned Jasmine dress delivered to I can whip it out as a "oh this dress? I've had it for ages" dress, when DH questions it wink

zanz1bar Wed 28-Sep-11 19:11:41

Well, my 4 dresses arrived and all went back. I am long in the body and the waistline just didn't sit well. Now I feel disappointed and yet virtuous.

SheWhoMustNotBeFlamed Wed 28-Sep-11 19:31:45

Jasmine really unflattering from the back <have sticky-out arse>

ChinaInYourHands Wed 28-Sep-11 20:53:39

Anyone know what the fit of Robyn is like and how long is it?

fruitnfibre Wed 28-Sep-11 23:54:40

I just returned the Robyn today - im 5 3" size 8 the shoulders too wide, length too long - also returned the Brooke too long in the body - think im just an odd shape!!

CakeandRoses Thu 29-Sep-11 00:21:54

hell, zanz1 i have long torso too and just ordered the paige. was it really wrong? sad

Northumberlandlass Thu 29-Sep-11 08:33:38

Mine hasn't arrived yet. I have such high hopes...fingers crossed I'm not disappointed.

Will report back !

ChinaInYourHands Thu 29-Sep-11 09:26:49

fruitnfibre thanks for that; I think I'm shorter than you so I won't even bother sad

Bugsy2 Thu 29-Sep-11 09:41:17

Thank you so much for this. Love their stuff. Just ordered 2 skirts. I'm 5ft 7" & find their stuff is quite a good fit.

fishie Thu 29-Sep-11 10:23:00

i'm well short in the body, my arms and legs are same as 6' man but i'm only 5'5". no good for me then?

MissBeehiving Thu 29-Sep-11 16:21:12

I'm short in the body fishie and 5ft5 and my order arrived today. I've bought from them before and they have been a good fit.

So order arrived today...

Catherine Wheels: lovely colour, looked expensive but not flatterinng on the norks area - was cut too high.

Brooke: looked nice on, fitted well, will probably keep it but wouldn't have paid full price for it.

Yasmina - lovely pale blue colour, looked expensive, fitted very well. My favourite.
