Have lost a bit of weight recently and am revamping my wardrobe slowly. I'm currently looking for a dress to wear for Xmas parties but don't want all black. Am also trying to get away from my old M&S "mumsy" look which was designed to cover all the lumps and bumps!

Please be kind if you don't like as this is my first thread in here!

What dress?

Hmm, it's okay but I don't think it's amazing. Plus it's the kind of dress that once I've seen you wear it to one party then I'd remember it if we were at the same party together over the christmas period, ifykwim?

I think that for that money you can do much much better.

Imo that's a very frumpy mumsy dress. And I really dislike monochrome but that's just me.

What size/shape/colouring are you?

Not a good idea if you are trying to get away from the 'M&S mumsy look' as it is exactly that!

I like it smile Maybe with sparkly earrings (but no necklace).

Nope.

Very nice. Go for it, bet it's really flattering with the optical illusion panels.

wonderstuff Mon 22-Oct-12 19:16:45

Don't like it. Agree that for the money could find nicer.

drewdrops Mon 22-Oct-12 19:17:02

i like it but needs a slim figure i guess- its feminine with the shirt sleeves

PerryCombover Mon 22-Oct-12 19:20:12

No way
Definite no

koala25 Mon 22-Oct-12 19:20:35

hmmm, I don't really like the pattern, but it will be flattering if you're not tall

merlottits Mon 22-Oct-12 19:22:33

Very mumsy I'm afraid. I don't like it, agree much better out there for the money. Can't imagine it looking good on anyone I know.

Teeb Mon 22-Oct-12 19:24:34

I'd rather go for something like this in the black which is a similar shape but a bit more sexy than mumsy. Put the money your saving into a decent set of spanx/control pants and then you could buy two dresses for the money.

littlebird3 Mon 22-Oct-12 19:26:22

Don't like it at all sorry.very mumsy =[

wonderstuff Mon 22-Oct-12 19:27:24

Prefer this

littlebird3 Mon 22-Oct-12 19:28:18

teeb like the one you recommend much more.

wonderstuff Mon 22-Oct-12 19:28:21

Love the ASOS one - would depend on the size of your boobs though

If you want to steer clear of mumsy then Asos is your friend!

candyflossisevil Mon 22-Oct-12 19:33:53

Its nice but looks quite officey. Love the one wonderstuff linked.

shockers Mon 22-Oct-12 19:47:58

I like it.

FamiliesShareGerms Mon 22-Oct-12 19:51:27

No, sorry, not the best dress for the money I've seen

What do you particularly like about it? (So we can help find something else)

This one is less mumsy by a long way, cheaper and looks flattering from here - worth a go! And not too crazy if you're used to a more M&S style

I have that Asos dress in red, bought it for my 40th & got a lot of compliments smile But it does need some extra help underneath!
