Warehouse animal jacquard dress

I can't tell if it's lovely or if my style radar is totally off! I have a bit of a phobia of animal print, probably because I fear my mother's her all animal print looks cheap and Bette Lynch-y.

Very beautiful, especially if you have some curves!

Barbara Windsor. That's what I think.

You're in my mother's camp then Pictish - fair enough!

It doesnt look like any animal I have seen.

I like it especially zip at back - not remotely Barbara Windsorish !

I don't see Babs either.

I both like it and don't like it - not often that happens. It could be they way she is wearing it with bare legs and those wee boots.

I agree Yama - it looks nice in the picture where it's not being worn, but on the model it looks Babs-ish, because the bare white legs and black ankle boots are horrible!

I'll just have to try it on and see. Mostly I hate animal prints but some people do manage to pull them off really well.

Mmm. On the fence here. The print is ok (not very animal-y though?), but I'm not keen on the style. Well, it wouldn't look right on me given my pasty rugby-player calves, but if you have legs like the model it would be ok I think.

Sorry, I'm not much help!

I did think it was a lace print rather than an animal print at first Northern, that's probably what attracted me. My legs are curvier than the model's but they are in good shape from dancing.
