Do you like this?

I have 5 weddings this summer. Luckily they are all seperate groups so I can invest in just one outfit!

Im skint so would love to find something nice enough on ebay

Yes it's lovely! The hair thingy is gorgeous too.

But isn't one bloke bidding against himself for the dress or am I reaing it wrong?

neena28 Sun 04-Jun-06 13:05:48

Coast stuff is so well made too, normally all lined and well cut.

Twiglett Sun 04-Jun-06 13:22:30

its really lovely .. but its a bit bridal party isn't it?

pecka Sun 04-Jun-06 13:35:06

Yes, your probably right twig

I think Im loving this one now.

Thoughts?

LadyTophamHatt Sun 04-Jun-06 13:52:12

like the 2nd one much more....

SaintGeorge Sun 04-Jun-06 13:55:54

Liking the 2nd more more but would like to see it in colour. Slightly concerned that dark blue on cream will look a bit too much like a piece of china IYSWIM.

2nd one more sutiable for guest than bridesmaid

bubblerock Sun 04-Jun-06 14:11:03

The second one is lovely but is it a size 12 or 14? Also it's going to cost over £50 and the seller has a feedback rating of only 3 so if you do buy make sure you buy using paypal and preferably using a credit card incase something goes wrong.

looove the first one. and the feathery thing too...

don't understand the bids tho'?!

LadyCodofCOdford Sun 04-Jun-06 15:08:12

LadyCodofCOdford Sun 04-Jun-06 15:09:14

ShowOfHands Sun 04-Jun-06 15:27:10

any good?

ShowOfHands Sun 04-Jun-06 15:30:52

this is quite nice

pecka Sun 04-Jun-06 15:50:30

I like that next one and the first other one but my tits arent good enough.

I prefer the strapless neckline

That last ebay one is nice but missing the lovely bit of taffeta stuff that shows under the hem on the coast one!

\link(url\what about this with my own added black ribbon round waist?}

pecka Sun 04-Jun-06 16:20:03

this i mean

LadyCodofCOdford Sun 04-Jun-06 16:24:26

yy what are you 12 or 14

pecka Sun 04-Jun-06 16:25:28

12

pecka Sun 04-Jun-06 18:37:31

\link{http://www.warehouse.co.uk/pws/ProductDetails.ice?ProductID=546\love this

if i go for monochrome floral print what can i do to jazz it up a bit?

ja9 Sun 04-Jun-06 19:59:14

pecka, beware because coast dresses are very generously sized.... if you were going to buy a dress off ebay you should perhaps try some on in coast to check what size to be.

a great thing about coast dresses i s that they sell really well on ebay, so you'd probably get your money back after wearing it.

i bought a coast dress off ebay for £65 and 2 identical to it have sold this week on ebay for £125!

Not sure if this is what you are looking for but pretty tempted to get this myself:-
