I've never heard of the brand.

I'm sorry I hate it. The colour would make almost anyone look peely wally.

HelloBoys Tue 11-Feb-14 13:37:32

It's ok but its a bit grey.

The reason you probably haven't heard of the brand is because apparently brands make stuff for TK Maxx - so if you see Clements Ribeiro etc there it won't be their original stuff but made for them!

You have plenty of time to look but...

a bit showy but more of an idea:-

It's a bit drab.

And oh my eyes not that Alexon one in Helloboys's link!!

Lighthousekeeping Tue 11-Feb-14 13:46:57

Oh I regretted it as soon as I posted it!

The coast dress is the same colour as the bridesmaid dresses. I am a size 14. Big on top.

HelloBoys Tue 11-Feb-14 13:47:53

Hello - ok not the Alexxon one but you never know!

HelloBoys Tue 11-Feb-14 13:48:10

sorry last post was for bit

Lighthousekeeping Tue 11-Feb-14 13:49:49

The trouble with monsoon is that there's a large chance of someone else wearing the same thing. I'm too young for Alexon in my head

BitOutOfPractice Tue 11-Feb-14 13:51:45

Anyone below 75 is too young for Alexon!

Hello. Happy to put you straight wink

BitOutOfPractice Tue 11-Feb-14 13:52:33

What's your budget? Have you looked on the Phase Eight site?

Beeyump Tue 11-Feb-14 14:29:51

shock that Alexon one is unbelivably horrible!

What about Jigsaw, or Whistles?

Lickitysplit Tue 11-Feb-14 14:32:12

I love this sale one in Reiss

Lighthousekeeping Tue 11-Feb-14 14:35:02

Whistles is my favourite shop. Budget up to £200

HyvaPaiva Tue 11-Feb-14 14:35:47

Good god, that Alexon dress is hideous!

Sorry, I don't like the first one either, OP.

Beeyump Tue 11-Feb-14 14:36:59

So pretty!

Beeyump Tue 11-Feb-14 14:39:24

Do you suit orange? Because Whistles seems to have a looot of orange right now.. I like this 'Mystic Mountain' dress from there too.

EatsCakeForNoReasonWhatsoever Tue 11-Feb-14 14:56:25

Have you had a look at the Alexon site (ie - not that awful Monsoon dress)

They have a teal version of that grey dress (more or less)

or actually, this teal one is even nicer and they're both on sale - hurrah!

Or this stunning Jade one at full price

Huh - wonder why all the nicest dresses are in the blue/green spectrum. I reckon they're trying to get me to buy another dress from them...

I take it back - they have that Jade style in sexy sexy red too. <drools>
