It's lovely. I want it!

Valsoldknickers Thu 08-Jan-15 19:09:38

That is stunning, really, really beautiful!

You must be going somewhere special to wear a dress like this. Care to spill?

It's rather pretty.

Though I'd look like a foil wrapped turkey in it. It needs the right sized lumps in the right places

Goodness me, its pretty, sort of Flapperish but for £225 I would expect a better material than polyester.

MsVanRein Thu 08-Jan-15 19:18:52

Oh it's lovely - I'm tempted to get it actually!

I think it's quite expensive given its a high street dress but if it floats your boat then go for it

magicpixie Thu 08-Jan-15 20:31:57

I was think as a wedding guest?

AmberNectarine Thu 08-Jan-15 20:48:49

Too much for a wedding I think, unless it's a very glam, black tie, night time wedding.

Twinklestein Thu 08-Jan-15 20:51:46

I like the idea, but I think the sequins are a bit big and stick out. It makes the model look slightly thick-waisted when she's clearly not.

I think you could probably get a better-fitting sequin dress for that price.

Pretty but too OTT for a wedding.

I would have thought it was a Christmas/ New Years dress in the sale. Can't believe the price at this time of year. Sure their must be something similar for lots less around now?

magicpixie Thu 08-Jan-15 21:41:37

its at a stately home
so guessing will bequite glam

Not for a wedding unless the invite States black tie? That's a cocktail dress.

magicpixie Thu 08-Jan-15 22:00:11

Well where are you supposed to wear cocktail dresses?

Personally i would even wear that to a v b smart restaurant in holiday
But then again i do dress up often

nilbyname Thu 08-Jan-15 22:07:51

A cocktail dress to a black tie event like a gallery opening, a fashion show, a ball of sorts. Perhaps a very smart dinner.

Looooove it.
Put a lovely jacket over it for the day time part of the wedding.

magicpixie Thu 08-Jan-15 22:25:18

Oh well i never go to any balls!

So shall have to go to some vvv smart restaurant

Decided to try it on at the weekend
And if it fits/looks good
I shall get it

No idea about shoes though

2would you say its a Hair up type of dress?

i have long dark hair

burnishedsilver Thu 08-Jan-15 22:27:26

Leave your hair down and curled to dress it down a little. Black satin court shoes would be lovely.

magicpixie Thu 08-Jan-15 22:38:31

My hairs wavy but i often curl it more


Purplehonesty Thu 08-Jan-15 22:44:32

It's lovely. I would wear it to a wedding too with hair down.
Have a great time!

magicpixie Thu 08-Jan-15 22:47:15

Just shown it to dh who said hhhmm bit shapeless looks like a bit like a bin bag

Eustasiavye Thu 08-Jan-15 23:39:47

I like it.

RojaGato Fri 09-Jan-15 00:34:58

Beautiful. Reminds me of the dress Marilyn Monroe wore in some Like it Hot.

looki Fri 09-Jan-15 01:18:45

I think its beautiful. The bigger sequins may make it feel heavy but that can only add to it.

I am a bit in awe of the price though! I have only once paid that for a dress and it was for a brother's wedding.

hellsbellsmelons Fri 09-Jan-15 10:23:45

I'm with your husband.
I think you could find much better for £225.
It might look really good on though.
These models have no figures.
Try it and send a pic to your DH to see what he thinks of it on you.
