I've tried it with a very fine wool long sleeved t shirt underneath for a bit more of a cover up and it looks great.

Branleuse Thu 08-Oct-15 12:32:14

it wouldnt suit my shape, but i can imagine it looking great on some people.

Urgh, that would loom hideous on me!

What shape are you OP?

The utility styling is very 'toast'

The floofy bit at the bottom is terrible. I am too short for it grin

Notoedike Thu 08-Oct-15 17:04:08

I'm size 12 and 5ft 9 - I love the floaty layered bit at the bottom. It reminds me of whistles collection this year. I'll wear it with my patent 60's ankle boots.

Notoedike Thu 08-Oct-15 17:05:12

Ahem - I do buy a few pieces from Toast every year too.

Did you buy black or olive and what colour top underneath? I love your style, think I'm going to copy!

MelanieCheeks Thu 08-Oct-15 23:39:11

Oooh I'm on the look out for more olive clothes! But at 5'2 I suspect it would be a shapeless maxi on me.

leccybill Thu 08-Oct-15 23:44:28

Ooh I really like it. I'm a size 10 and 5 foot 6, I wonder if it would suit me.

Notoedike Fri 09-Oct-15 08:46:18

I got the olive but I'm tempted by the black too.
Here's the boots and the long sleeved top. The top is very fine and has fabulously long slim sleeves....I do like a long sleeve and I don't often find it. I like the slight ribbed effect too it gives a good contrast for layering.

HellKitty Fri 09-Oct-15 08:51:45

I like the froofy bit at the bottom but the cut of the sleeves and neck would look awful on me.

5'7" size 12, titty, if you're wondering.

Notoedike Fri 09-Oct-15 09:16:45

I'm a tad titty too.grin But I have nicely shaped shoulders.
The dress is straight on me, just skims my hips - it has the feel of a flapper dress - Imo the dress looks too big on the model.

Littlemissadequate Fri 09-Oct-15 09:22:05

Thank you I've just bought dress and top. Love your style look forward to seeing any other recommendations. Im still searching for boots, I love yours as not too high but not sold on patent. I think I need a more everyday low ankle boot that's good with dresses and skirts. Any ideas?

Stevie77 Fri 09-Oct-15 11:25:57

WTF is with the Zara model eyebrows? Jeeeeez

Dowser Fri 09-Oct-15 12:47:41

I'm struggling to read your name

Is it
No toe dike
No to ed Ike

No toed Ike
Noto edike

Or none of them? Bit pedantic me!

Notoedike Fri 09-Oct-15 12:58:07

It's "No toe dike" grin

Greengardenpixie Fri 09-Oct-15 13:02:52

love that dress smile star

waceystills Fri 09-Oct-15 15:04:32

Nice dress op! I shall order that right now ??

LittleRedSparke Fri 09-Oct-15 19:18:07

i like the fooofy bit, but not the top half... i think its shapeles

i LOVE the price though!

Yourface Fri 09-Oct-15 19:31:36

I like it too. Also 5ft 10 and size 12. Think that top and dress would suit me too. Don't have many dresses.

I would wear with tall, flatish boots.

waceystills Sun 11-Oct-15 06:55:14

It didn't arrive, very sad as I was hoping to wear it to work on Monday. I wonder if that is a result of this thread, or Tesco Direct's usual ineptitude.

Notoedike Sun 11-Oct-15 07:42:00

My black one has arrived at my local tesco express - I just haven't got around to picking it up. Tesco can be very slow though.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Sun 11-Oct-15 16:20:08

I don't like it. It looks dull drab shapless and has no if you can say it about dress, no character or personality
But don't know why I give such a shiny shit, I certainly won't be wearing the ghastly thing. If you like it and you feel good in it. That's the main thing.

MelanieCheeks Tue 03-Nov-15 14:56:16

Ok, it was reduced to £8 in the sale so I ordered it, and am wearing it today.

Hmmm. Not as long and droopy as I thought, the length and hem bit are actually fine.

The material is very sheer - lot of VPL going on. It also picks up and magnifies every little splash of water/ sweat underarms. I'd hoped to wear it to a dance class later, but that's looking unsuitable now.

The colour is great (I went for olive).

Not sure about the dangly bit on the pocket, I keep thinking it's a loose thread.
