I am tempted, but it is hard to tell the length.
I measured out 96cm on me, which was just about wrong, but if I knew how tall the model in the picture was...

Its not something I would immediately go for, but could easily look really nice on. Remember its not just about how tall you are but how it sits on your curves which will determine the length. Just buy it, try it, and return if no good smile

Well the only curves I have are above the waist! If I buy to fit those the rest will be flapping like sails in the wind :-( but there are always tailors, who will adjust to fit.
I thought with a navy linen jacket and either navy or orange shoes it could be a good outfit.

It's gorgeous - now I'm tempted to buy it. On the Fenn Wright Manson site, there is an extra 10% off sale items this weekend as well.

Dress looks pretty cute but look at hobbs as well- there is a sale on and some pretty dresses for the same price

Sorry just re-looked at it again as couldn't view the pics on the actual model before, it does look lovely. As you described with a jacket and shoes will look gorge. Special occasion?

Indulged in 2 with the 10% off from the FWM website yesterday. Can only get a 12 on their site, but there is a 10 on JL.
Still debating.
No special occasion, it is the kind of thing I could wear to work in hot weather with a jacket.

I think you'd need to be slim and evenly-proportioned to pull it off, but if you were that shape it would look fantastic.

add a skinny belt?

I don't think it would look right on me but it's pretty smile

I love it.
The length on the model looks about right. If it's too long on you it could easily be taken up.

Bunbaker Sat 01-Aug-15 19:56:56

No. I really don't like it.

Milllii Sat 01-Aug-15 20:42:43

No, sorry but I think its awful.

PrettyObvious Sat 01-Aug-15 21:19:59

Well I have ordered.
Depends on the length and shape. I am quite slim with big boobs, so A-line is not the best look. I can always send it back, though :-)
Should qualify quite slim, 34e on top, 8 to 10 on the bottom. Classic inverted triangle.
