I absolutely love the colour (and price). Not entirely sure about the dress though, is it lovely or absolutely gopping and my hungover eyes can't see it?

It looks a bit like a Christmas tree, but it's ok. My flabby legs couldn't carry it off though!

JeffreysMummyIsCross Sun 20-Dec-15 09:10:31

I really don't like the shape of it, sorry.

Penfold007 Sun 20-Dec-15 09:10:37

If you've got the legs to carry that look off, go for it. I'd look like a stubby Christmas tree

WilburIsSomePig Sun 20-Dec-15 09:10:52

Oh it does doesn't it? Maybe that's why it looks a bit familiar!

WilburIsSomePig Sun 20-Dec-15 09:12:13

Legs are OK but I wouldn't say they're spectacular. Maybe a need to go a bit longer. I really, really love the colour but I think I might look a bit Pat Butcher in this...

I dont much care for it tbh.
Although maybe it looks better on.

SirChenjin Sun 20-Dec-15 09:12:56

I like it - although I think you'd have to be tall and slim to wear it. I wonder if it might look better with black opaques and high black heels? confused

Hoppinggreen Sun 20-Dec-15 09:13:20

Love the colour but it's very Christmassy so I don't think you would get a lot of wear out of it. Mind you it's quite cheap so go for it if you've got good legs

Arfarfanarf Sun 20-Dec-15 09:14:24

Oh. I just realised you can swipe andsee more

If youve got a body like that model then you could carry it off.
Us mere mortals would look less great grin

I love the colour too. I'm not sure about the dress. It's probably worth trying on.

WilburIsSomePig Sun 20-Dec-15 09:20:49

OK, I most definitely DO NOT have a body like that model and I'm only 5'3 so I'm thinking I would look hilarious in this and not in a good way.

I need to keep trying to find a dress this colour!

MrsLeighHalfpenny Sun 20-Dec-15 09:21:46

It looks like what a lady elf would wear on a night out.

snowypenguin Sun 20-Dec-15 09:42:12

It's ok. I think it would be better if it was longer.

EmilyPunkhurst Sun 20-Dec-15 09:59:56

Phase 8 generally do a lot of green stuff, but I'm not familiar with this season's collection.

DavetheCat2001 Sun 20-Dec-15 12:46:15

I quite like it, and love the colour.

I agree though that you need to have good legs to carry it off though.

80sWaistcoat Sun 20-Dec-15 12:50:10

I like it. So long as you don't accessorise with an elf hat it should be fine...

RakeMeHomeCountryToads Sun 20-Dec-15 12:51:32

The skirt part is lovely but I don't like the shape of the top. Great colour though.

Headmelt Sun 20-Dec-15 12:53:36

Design wise the top part is OK, I don't really like the bottom part. I think wearing that colour at Christmas would be a problem because of the "elf" green outfits, other times of the year would be fine.

TondelayaDellaVentamiglia Sun 20-Dec-15 12:56:02

above the knee ??? Barely arse skimming I'd say!

that is just going to emphasise upper arms bingo wings , the blousing is not nice please say that's not back in a big way and it's going to mean you have to stand up the entire time you have it on for fear of an inadvertent Sharon Stone.

Branleuse Sun 20-Dec-15 12:56:02

it wouldnt suit me because of the blousey bit on top, but I think it could be great with certain body shapes. I like the peacock skirt and the colour.
Would prefer the skirt pattern to be all over and it to be more fitted or shift type
