I am late 30's, size 10-12.

oh I'm sorry I don't like it at all. I really wanted to when I clicked the link. Don't let that put you off though, we probably just have different taste smile

FetchezLaVache Tue 18-Feb-14 22:35:18

I don't like it either, I'm afraid.

phoolani Tue 18-Feb-14 22:37:04

I like it. Quite a lot. Dress up or down.

IHeartKingThistle Tue 18-Feb-14 22:37:37

I like it but the neckline is quite high. If your boobs are small enough to carry it off go for it!

DIddled Tue 18-Feb-14 22:39:40

Sorry no- like a kids tv presenter rig out. I do struggle with Zara- the odd thing I like but the quality is poor.

iwantavuvezela Tue 18-Feb-14 22:40:15

I like it

OneLittleLady Tue 18-Feb-14 22:41:05

I like it but couldn't wear it myself, it'd not do my hips any favours!

buttercrumble Tue 18-Feb-14 22:41:06

Ooh no sorry , it's shapeless

CursiveLetters Tue 18-Feb-14 22:43:07

I think it looks pretty unflattering honestly

MrsLettuce Tue 18-Feb-14 22:52:36

I get the need for a short, 80's inspired print, dress but I'd prefer something like this.

Warehouse have one called 80s Batwing Bold Floral Dress but it won't link, it's a different style though

WhereIsMyHat Tue 18-Feb-14 22:54:15

I like the shape but not the print.

What's with the birkinstock arizona look-alikes, are they making a come back?!? I saw them on the urban outfitters website the other day too.

Just to add some more regarding the shape, I think it depends on your shape, if you have good legs then I think this shape is good. If you have a waist/ hips then it's not so good. I love this style dress but it doesn't do me any favours. Cos do a lot of this style dress but I'm not sure you'd get a print from them?

fraggle73 Tue 18-Feb-14 23:04:53

for some reason cant link to the warehouse dress. like this one too

MrsLettuce Tue 18-Feb-14 23:06:18

Oh that is nice.

LadyStark Tue 18-Feb-14 23:08:33

If a dress looks bad on a model definitely don't buy it. Zara dress falls into this category for me.

Have you looked at the & other stories website? I like Zara and also like lots on this site.

fraggle73 Tue 18-Feb-14 23:10:16

Thanks everyone. I am a size 10 on top and size 12 on hips. Shift dresses normally suit me better. My legs arent that bad! Need something for the weekend for dinner with the girls.

yesyestisme Tue 18-Feb-14 23:12:32

I prefer the Zara dress, but only if worn with heels! Orange ones would be lovely.

Those sandals on the model are outrageous shock

cloudskitchen Tue 18-Feb-14 23:12:57

I do like the mango one mrslettuce linked. I think the first one reminded of the bam pow etc from the batman and robin cartoon strip somehow grin

HyvaPaiva Tue 18-Feb-14 23:15:57

Zara one: 80s in the most awful way, hate it.
Warehouse one: Love!

MrsLettuce Tue 18-Feb-14 23:21:15

The warehouse one you linked would be perfect for that, I'd say.

Snowdown Tue 18-Feb-14 23:39:55

Zara dress looks awful on the model so I wouldn't touch it. Love the warehouse dress.

RonaldMcDonald Tue 18-Feb-14 23:45:34

I like them ( not for me due to norkage) I'd give a nod of approval if I met you out in that

SofaCanary Tue 18-Feb-14 23:55:35

It could be knockout depending on how you style it.
That brush stroke look is very 'in' I believe wink
