No not for going out, just to wear on the weekend or to Uni. Im heading for 40 so dont feel the need to look sexy all the time but do like to feel nice. I have other tunics but this is warm and knitwear and looks lovely with a scarf i bought.
It's quite expensive for cotton I guess. Most of my clothes are pretty cheap, being with kids all day I'd rather not wear things that I'm 'fussy' about (if the paint wont come out/it gets snagged while walking in the woods/pulled around by small people and it's not ££ it doesn't really matter to me). On the other hand, my Mum would think that was cheap for a dress... so I suppose it just depends. FF is normally good quality & hard wearing isn't it?
I like it and would wear it. If it flatters and is warm and comfy and looks great with your scarf then it is doing everything you wanted of it, isnt it?
If it washes well it will be one of your winter staples and you'll be pleased to have had so much wear out of it. But if it looses its shape or snags or bobbles after a few washes you wont want to wear it because it so plain you'll feel scruffy.
Why not give it a few hard wears and washes and, if it disappoints, dig out the receeipt and complain in store about the quality and ask for a refund?
