Hi, I have a Mint Velvet gift card and after having a browse I like the look of this dress

I have some flat sandals that would work with it but it is a bit different than I usually go for.

What do you think?

I like it!

It's not to my taste but it''s not horrible. envy at Mint Velvet gift card though.

I am confused what occasion you are going to wear it for.

The drawstring waist style is casual but the colour black is not. I am not sure about the studs.

It looks comfortable.

I like it. But I think you would need to have a nice tan to wear it well.

I quite like it if I had a gift card, would spend cash elsewhere.

My card is for £60 and I can't afford to add too much extra to it so a lot of things on the site are a bit over budget.

Any suggestions welcome. I'm a size 16 though which might make things trickier.

blueshoe I was thinking it would work for casual nights out when weather is warmer with flat sandals and cropped denim jacket ( I have both of these already)

Love it! Agree it would look great casual with a denim jacket and sandals (although bronzed legs will be necessary..)

Not tall, sunshinemmum. Sack of spuds not quite the look I was hoping for. I'll think about it a bit more.

Really like it!

Is the jersey v fine or quite heavy?

purpleminion Tue 18-Mar-14 17:46:08

Don't know that redpencil. Have only seen it online. I would hope at the price that the jersey is reasonable quality.

I think it's quite nice, but since it looks summery it's a shame that they didn't make it in a lighter colour.

I like it... A real dress up dress down item.. You would get a lot of wear out of it for sure smile

its quite short so imo you would definitely need to have good legs for this dress to work

I think it is the sort of dress thT on leggy slim tall people looks great but on mere mortals like me would be unforgiving. Agree you need great legs and also that drawstring difficult to pull off
