Quick poll, is this dress ugly or beautiful?

I can't make up my mind, veering towards ugly...

Depends. If you are going to a 50s style dance, it's perfect. But it's very theatrical. Might not get more than one wear.

The shape is great, the dress is awful!

does this appeal?

lurkingaround Mon 24-Sep-12 21:11:21

Not keen, I'm afraid.

Good, my fashion radar is not too off.

Idly browsing for something for a school reunion. I want to look amazing, but that I haven't tried too hard. Sexy but not obvious/flesh exposing. Successful but young and carefree. Stylish but edgy.

Oh, and thin.

Not too much to ask is it grin

NotMarlene, lovely dress, lovely colour but my boobs would look huge in that. Great site though.

Great cushion cover

notMarlene Mon 24-Sep-12 21:19:38

Ah, right, school reunion. I thought we were in wedding territory!

I'd say black trousers, black top, fabulous shoes, amazing bag, fresh from the hairdresser hair and a subtle manicure. Oh, and a damned good bra.

I really like the dress, but it doesn't fit the "not trying too hard" brief for me.

UnexpectedItemInShaggingArea Mon 24-Sep-12 21:31:28

You are right notMarlene. Shoes / bag / hair / nails / bra and spanx are key.

ICanTuckMyBoobsInMyPockets Mon 24-Sep-12 21:32:48

I'm going against the grain and saying its absolutely beautiful. I might even treat myself!

Pollykitten Mon 24-Sep-12 21:35:12

Oh god sorry but it's vile! Shiniy, busy, awful! Just too like a quality street wrapper!

Fozzleyplum Mon 24-Sep-12 21:35:57

Not horrendous - but too much going on IYSWIM

Pollykitten Mon 24-Sep-12 21:37:53,default,pd.html

the cut of this is lovely - a bit like Roland Mouret...

Rexy Mon 24-Sep-12 21:40:27

I sa it yesterday and think its lovely especially irl

UnexpectedItemInShaggingArea Mon 24-Sep-12 21:48:31

Ooh Polly,

Have just clicked "add to basket". Reduced from £150 to £45 smile

Oneflipflop Mon 24-Sep-12 21:49:45

Too busy.

Takver Mon 24-Sep-12 21:58:38

Too late, but I love Get Cutie. I have one of their short cap sleeve dresses and its the once piece of clothing that people always admire/want to know where it came from.

Pollykitten Mon 24-Sep-12 22:12:21

I got the same bargain - LOVE it! Glam and not trying too hard - hope you have a fab reunion!

Polly, you'd better not be there wearing the same dress grin
