Saw Tethers link to a gorgeous sequin FC dress on another thread but at £160 it's too £££.

Had a mooch and found this and, like the gaudy, tacky magpie I am, fell for it.

I'm 5'4, curvy size 10, good/not huge boobs, unnaturally coloured hair and general style is a bit off the wall.

Would wear with black opaques and high heel boots.

What say ye?

it may suit you but personally i don't like it

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Tue 03-Nov-15 22:00:52

If you have nice legs, you can rock that dress. There.

Nice colour but you'll catch your death dearie.

I like it grin would look amazing with violet hair!

legs or boobs, never both.

Maybe it's just me. I'm getting on in years. Is it a bit gypsies wedding?

I would wear it clubbing, but only with clompy black chelsea boots (nothing pointy or with skinny heels) and a biker jacket.

The shape is very vavavoom to begin with, and then its covered in sequins. I wouldn't dress it up too much.

It's a bit Alexis Carrington (although she would have worn it full length, smoking a Sobranie through a cigarette holder and hissing, "I can't resist you, Dex Dexter!")

Another 5'4" size 10. (Although more boy-ish figure than you: small boobs but decent legs.) Id' wear it with a push-up bra and opaques. Not 100% convinced by the colour but just 'cos it's not one I wear a lot.

Sorry but I think it's really horrible. Bright AND glitzy AND tits AND legs = tacky imvho. Sorry.

nettle grin Dex Dexter was so gorgeous!

I like the colour of the dress but I think it's too low cut.

I think it would be ok with opaques (in terms of "legs or boobs not both"). BUT how old are you? I'm not saying you couldn't look great in it over any particular age, but that that style is definitely something you'd expect someone under 25 or so to be wearing.
FWIW I'd wear it and I'm 29, but only with opaques, and the heeled boots would need to be no higher on the leg than ankle boots.

I think you'd have to try it on to find out- it's that sort of dress. Maybe with a black fluffy shrug? Definitely heavy boots etc, it's already glam but I think it could work in a fun, 'trashy' sort of way. I like it. grin

(And sod what age you are, by the way.)

WharRemus said. I can't see any way that dress wouldn't look tacky.
