Today I passed a lady in a gorgeous dress, by the time i had decided it was a good idea to ask her where it was from I couldn't see her anymore!

It was knee length ish, navy top and the skirt, which was from above the waistline was big vertical green/white/navy chevron type pattern. It appeared to be possibly jersey type material as it had a lovely swish.

She looked cool and very stylish and I wish I had stopped her to ask!

Does it ring a bell with anyone?
Thanks everyone, i know it is a long shot but I have also seen the sleuths of MN S&B at work before! wink

Plus, i don't think I would have looked twice at it on the pictures if i hadn't seen the lady wearing it today, it isn't my usual style at all! I hope it fits ok!

Ooh I think I'm going to order it too now at that price!smile

Haha no probs, I rather like it as well actually. Was mentally willing you to come back to the post as thought it'd sell out at that price;)

They also have it with red instead of green - a few more sizes available.

And yes, BrandAlley is v v slow. One year I ordered something for a xmas present in October and didn't get it until January. That was rubbish.

GoofyIsACow Tue 30-Jun-15 18:47:42

Oh no! I didnt see that dispatch date! shock

I have ordered it, i fear i wont look as stylish as the lady I saw today in it, as she was lively and petite and I am a 5'9 grt big thing! grin

GoofyIsACow Tue 30-Jun-15 18:48:13

Lovely and petite obviously... She may have been lively however!

Just got mine yesterday, had totally forgotten about it and am really happy! It's got a bit too much extra material on the hips and I prefer a lower neckline but the chevron striping is really clever! Hope you liked yours as well OPsmile

I just spent ages trying to find the thread to say mine arrived today, i didn't see your message Save.
Yes, mine fits well, i am not overly keen on the round neck but i think with the right jewellery it might be ok. I think the waist is slightly higher than i would normally go for.
I think I will keep it though as I reckon I can make it work!
Thanks again for finding it! smile

No worries it benefitted me as well;), yeah I wasn't so sure about the neck either actually so let me know what jewellery you usesmile
