Posted this morning about the FCUK 20% off and my amazing bargain which I loved:

Showed some folk at work and they all hate it!! shock Particularly the embellishment.

Have I lost the plot?? Please please tell me what you think...

Personally I love it, but think it wouldn't suit anyone with a big bust! xx

Teeb Wed 19-Nov-14 13:48:48

Lovely if you're tall and non curvy. Anything bigger than a B Cup would look out of place

I love it HappyGirl! and had a look this morning, think you posted link yesterday(?) would love it, but only size 6 left. (never in my wildest dreamssad ) Feck the haters.

I'm really not sure.
I think I quite like it.
I'm just trying to imagine it on me.
And just how horrid my armpits would look. smile
If you are tall and thin with no under arm fat bits and have no bust then it could work.

PHEW! Was starting to worry I'd lost it - so glad I'm not the only person in the world who likes it - I love it! grin

Sorry you couldn't get it sky - I managed to get a size 10 last night.. So yes, I'm 5' 9", size 10 (10/12 on bottom) and small B cup... So hopefully it'll look ok..

And £36 down from £150 grin

I really like it! Why didn't your colleagues like it?

RonaldMcDonald Wed 19-Nov-14 16:17:48

I think it is v bridesmaidy

HappyGirlNow Wed 19-Nov-14 16:26:52

Thanks happiness grin they thought the flowers on the front were odd, said they would have liked it if it were plain.. But I like the flowers, it's different..

Really ronald in what way? Can't see it myself?

ShakeYourTailFeathers Wed 19-Nov-14 16:30:05

OP on your figure I think it would look lovely...on mine not so much grin

TheHappinessTrap Wed 19-Nov-14 18:48:47

Plain would be fine, but the flowers, along with the cut, make the dress.

SmellyFartado Wed 19-Nov-14 19:09:52

Don't like it at all sorry OP. The satin pinafore top, flowers and length are very dated.

HappyGirlNow Wed 19-Nov-14 19:47:24

Thanks feathers - it's en route so fingers crossed grin

No problem smelly I don't think it is dated but certainly don't expect everyone to like it - just wanted to know that everyone didn't hate it as the sample in my office seemed to suggest shock grin

I like it but agree that you need a small chest for it.

HappyGirlNow Wed 19-Nov-14 19:53:21

Well no problems on that score dexter grin
