don't like the big patterned thing at the bottom

alicemama Mon 05-Jun-06 22:48:51

Brown/copper curly hair and I'm quite fair.

Was thinking it might look cute with a little cardi or pashmina and kitten heel sandels??

spacedonkey Mon 05-Jun-06 22:49:44

I like it - very pretty

spacedonkey Mon 05-Jun-06 22:51:07

although I should point out I'm not a style guru

alicemama Mon 05-Jun-06 22:53:13

everybody has more style than me at the moment...so that makes you a style guru in my eyes

moondog Mon 05-Jun-06 22:56:13

That could work am..
Are you a sexy curvy type??
(Dear God,it sounds like I am coming onto you!)

alicemama Mon 05-Jun-06 22:59:22

I am quite curvy, can actually see a waist and altho have hips and big norks, my legs are quite nice...well i think?

moondog Mon 05-Jun-06 23:02:16

You can get away with a lot if you have shapely ankles.

alicemama Mon 05-Jun-06 23:06:04

My mom and sister hate me as they have...dare I say it "chubby ankles"......and I don't!

Oh well they're both stick thin everywhere else where it counts

MamaG Mon 05-Jun-06 23:07:49

I really like the shape and colour, whcih I think will look fab on your shape, but I'm not overly keen on the big flowers...could look either fab or a bit rubbish

flutterbee Mon 05-Jun-06 23:17:20

I think it's lovely and will be perfect with a little shrug.

collision Mon 05-Jun-06 23:19:19

I think it could be lovely but it is a size 16 and you are an 18 so might not fit! (Sorry)

CountessDracula Mon 05-Jun-06 23:26:37

alicemama Tue 06-Jun-06 12:33:49

Right decided on the dress, even if don't win off e-bay I think I'll get it from monsoon.....

Beetroot Tue 06-Jun-06 12:39:56
