I have the phase 8 dress in navy. I wear it with a navy bra and you can hardly see the straps - I hadn't thought of it as an issue! I love it as it is very flattering and slinky. I have worn it twice now and had lots of compliments. I'm not so keen on the high neck on the dp dress.
They are both lovely on, think I'm surprised by the dp one as it looks much better on than I thought it would-it doesn't look great in the photos-ordered it on the strengths of the reviews and the price and wasn't expecting much tbh. The phase8 one is lovely....wish I could keep them both but can onely just about afford one! I wish I hadn't ordered secretly so I could get dh to help decide
Oooh I'd love it in Navy-but think it was still full price The purple isn't too blue. Think i'm struggling as have been told by stepmil that I shouldn't wear black (she's just trained to do 'colours') I think the black looks good though....
Just looking at the dp one online again-looks so much better on! I'd love both but funds won't allow...plus I rarely go out so i'd have to wear them around the house! I'm not sure what shoes-what do you think? I have limited selection-black heeled ankle boots, navy wedge ankle boots, v high purple peep toe things...think that may be it!
Thank you all for your help! I kept the phase eight one in the end-it is lovely and actually the black looks better on than the purple! It feels so much better quality than the do one obviously and I think is a bit more classic, and was a bargin! Just have to style it now!
