here

We have a wedding to go to in 2 weeks, and I have a lovely dress for it. But don't want to wear a coat. I bought the stole and have borrowed an antique brooch from mil, overall, I really like the look. Dh does not. But he lives in shorts and should therefore be ignored, right?

I think you look v nice.

Trills Mon 10-Oct-11 08:37:47

Where are you going - anywhere that you might get red paint thrown over you?

Thanks, I have lost loads of weight thanks to being ill/tooth and this hides that nicely.

Perhaps not a rat, maybe a badger or a dead cat? wink

Hate to say this, but I am with your DH on this. I hope he's not going to wear shorts to the wedding wink

It's not real rat fur... is it?

SolarPrestigeAGammon Mon 10-Oct-11 08:40:55

Why are you lying down? Is it a fat/heavy rat?

SolarPrestigeAGammon Mon 10-Oct-11 08:43:14

Looks like the dust I find under my bed.

Ditch it. Dress looks lovely. Agree with your DH.

Trills, hahaha, its a wedding and not real. [Grin]

In fact, I'd probably be more popular there if it was.

I think it is nice. But how do you get it to stay still?

toddlerama Mon 10-Oct-11 08:46:57

I like it.

Wurg Mon 10-Oct-11 08:47:48

I rather like the 40's silhouette it gives but I don't think the colour and texture of the stole does much for the outfit.

I think a light black wool wrap would look much nicer. The rat stole draws the attention away from the beautiful dress.
What is the neck line of the dress like?

I've pinned a brooch to it, it does have a very 40's feel to it. I like that the bulkiness hides my sticky out collar bones/shoulder blades. Will post a pic of the dress when I get home.

Don't really like shrugs and pashmina's are out, too long. I'm v petite.

this is the dress.

brooch is similar to this but without the crystals/diamonds.

AndiMac Mon 10-Oct-11 09:09:50

You look very lovely in the dress, but I have to agree the stole looks a little wrong. It looks a bit rough and patchy, not nearly as elegant as you and the dress look. This might just be the fault of the picture, but it doesn't look as sleek as it should.

PinotScreechio Mon 10-Oct-11 09:11:26

Well I like it. Read into that what you will smile

LissieLovettsDeliciousPies Mon 10-Oct-11 09:12:10

because the dress is silk, and the belt/shoes are patent, I thought this would tone down the shininess without dressing it down too much.

im in a proper quandary!

SolarPrestigeAGammon Mon 10-Oct-11 09:12:26

The dress looks much, much nicer on you than it does on the website.

Flowerista Mon 10-Oct-11 09:16:17

I like it too, look on the Coast website furry stoles are everywhere. I'd be inclined to accessorise with a diamante brooch to lift the colour. Otherwise channel your inner Christina Hendricks.
