Looking at the Easy Living thread on AIBU. I was amazed by this school run outfit by Missoni .

Right I know it's going to be £100's but wear did she get it from, it's lovely

Looking at that photo I'll say you need an efficient bra as well.

good grief, I had no idea there was a fashion runway at the school gate hmm

today on the school run I wore: grey h&M jeans, doc marten boots, a black berghaus coat because it was pissing it down. Shall I take a photo & send it in?

but that IS a nice dress.

PLEASE someone find this dress. Not so I can wear it on school run though- all the other parents would die of shock or think "ooh pockets won the lottery"

It is gorgeous. Please someone find it!

Similar shape but not the same colourway
not a natural fibre to be seen!

Well I guess pockets will need to win the lottery grin

it looks like her gran knitted it for her

Its only because she is good looking

I have a very similar dress from Primark that I bought last year, and they had some this year too.
I've worn it out with some (wealthy gay) friends who've completed me on my Missoni dress.

Keep a look out in there, if you know what you're looking for and pick carefully you can fool everyone ;)

There are some similar dresses that pop up every now and then on the high street. They won't have the fine knit of Missoni but will probably be good enough to fool people who don't give it a close inspection.

Missoni do seem to be made for women with no boobs. I have a missoni dress and the bra lining section is about a AA size. I have to wear a flesh coloured bra underneath it.

I love it too but am huge missoni fan. I have a poncho which I bought about 20 Plus years ago! I get it out every spring and always get loads of compliments but it was £££ then so no idea what a dress wold be now. I am sure there are copies but as the age of mine shows the real thing lasts literally forever!

i could be mistaken here,but i think its from missoni secondary line M missoni,slightly cheaper than the main line.

flossieraptor Fri 19-Apr-13 15:14:35

It's quite similar to this

IntheFrame Fri 19-Apr-13 16:19:05

*flossieraptor8 - in what way?!!

I have more similar Desigual dresses - same cut, nice pattern and good colours

Wish M&S would take note.
