What do you think - a dress for visiting the relatives over Christmas?

I have my little bit of sparkle already for evening time but just wondering what you make of this dress for visits to relatives over Christmas?

I usually live in jeans and don't really have any dresses so thought this might be nice with black opaque tights and knee high boots?

Like that grin

Where is it from?

Thanks HappyGirlNow, it's an Oasis number I came across on ASOS. Hopefully it will look ok in real life!

a dress to sit on your Nan's sofa?

My Nan died many years ago. You're very insensitive.

BrendaandEddie Sat 12-Dec-15 21:22:37

and i am supposed to know that - how?

iwantgin Sat 12-Dec-15 21:27:08

I like it.

MartinRohdesBellybuttonFluff Sat 12-Dec-15 21:28:26

You're not but I see it makes no difference.

Don't like

Is very BHS Vanilla Sands

Do your relatives work for Vogue?

It's fine by me. Although my personal taste would add some colour.

MartinRohdesBellybuttonFluff Sat 12-Dec-15 22:18:03

Donkey had to google BHS Vanilla Sands as there isn't a BHS here! Doesn't look like they're selling it anymore so I'm still clueless grin

Lweji I will pick up on the wine colour in it. I see your point, thanks.

It's fine but will depend on the fabric. It looks like polyester, in which case I know that I wouldn't like it. In cotton/silk it could be lovely,

MartinRohdesBellybuttonFluff Sat 12-Dec-15 22:36:35

Remus I agree with you completely. It is, however, made of viscose which seems to be everywhere these days, but I am hopeful that it will look nice enough to counterbalance what it lacks in the 100% natural fabric department smile

DonkeyOaty Sat 12-Dec-15 22:39:43

Och it will be fine. Bit of bright lippy, ye'll be grand.

I think it looks great for Christmas visiting. Like you're making an effort but not over the top.

First glance it looked like one of those Nordic prints (but then I looked close it, it isn't must clean my glasses ) blush

It's nice. It'll look good with the boots and thick tights then you can wear it later.
(I like viscose, very soft)
