Just wondered what everyone thought of this dress?

Pink Dress

Have a couple of spring weddings and thought I could wear it with a statement necklace like the model with perhaps orange contrasting shoes / bag?

I'm 5'9, size 12 (with a puchy post CC tummy) and 35 if that helps! Quite pale skinned though..

puchy? I meant pouchy...

mellowmocha Tue 18-Feb-14 10:30:37

or this one?

Cos dress

I like it. It's a nice cut. It would go well with a nice oversized clutch smile

I prefer the 2nd, i love the pockets & its a real statement.

Not sure about the first.... A little plain & the colour might wash you out.

Love the Cos one

MrsLettuce Tue 18-Feb-14 12:32:46

That Cos dress is great - I'd go with that.

Much prefer the Cos one

WowserBowser Tue 18-Feb-14 12:39:37

Oh, and I'm pretty much the same height, age and size as you, so if you don't like it I'll pm you my address grin

I like the oliver bonas one. very pretty.

Twinklestein Tue 18-Feb-14 13:07:30

Prefer the Cos - more style. The first one is a bit old lady-ish.

scottishmummy Tue 18-Feb-14 13:11:17

Cos dress is gorgeous

Beeyump Tue 18-Feb-14 13:12:53

I like the Cos one a lot, but think the Oliver Bonas dress might be more flattering?

Beeyump Tue 18-Feb-14 13:14:11

The words, 'voluminous pleated skirt' make me feel daunted.

BellaVita Tue 18-Feb-14 13:16:17

I like them both but agree with Bee about the first one.

HelloBoys Tue 18-Feb-14 13:27:48

Cos is nicer.

ksrwr Tue 18-Feb-14 13:30:39

i absolutely love them both! cos one is definitely more cool tho.
just depends which colour works best with your hair/skin

HelloBoys Tue 18-Feb-14 13:35:04

PS - OP if you don't NEED it now there will be tons more dresses in spring colours in stock soon.

AndTwoBits Tue 18-Feb-14 13:36:13

I am the same height and weight and one year older and its the cos one id wear! Its fab.

mellowmocha Tue 18-Feb-14 13:40:39

Thanks all, think I'll order the COS one and see.

Helloboys I know what you mean, hoping lots of new dresses appear soon, if I don't like the cos one I'll hold out.

Bee - agree, it might look terrible on, volumionous and pouchy stomach might not work!!!

Beeyump Tue 18-Feb-14 13:50:45

Mellow - No, no! It might look amazing on! I didn't mean to dampen your ardour for the Cos dress, because it's great smile

The Cos one is lovely.
