...and this skirt. I should be working, but am instead trying to decide what to wear to a friend's wedding blush Which option? Neither? grin

Not the dress.
The skirt could be lovely.

Dress: I don't want to say it's awful...but.... it's just not my style.
Skirt is nice. Price? shock

I like the skirt... the dress is hideous though, sorry!

LuckySantangelo1 Mon 07-Mar-16 11:58:52

Really not that keen on either. And the skirt is £350! Sorry op.

I like the dress, but I'd wear it casually.not for a wedding. The skirt looks like something I made for GCSE textiles...

Not the dress, it says over-fussy 1950s housewife to me. The skirt could be OK though.

Does it help to see the dress on someone? <clutches at straws>

Being blunt - that dress screams FRUMPY.

Skirt is OK depending on what you'd wear it with. Are they crocheted flowers?

PrivatePike Mon 07-Mar-16 12:02:41

I love the skirt. It's also available in pale blue

I know, the dress is frumpy, but in a way I quite like!

MargotLovedTom Mon 07-Mar-16 12:03:37

Sorry, meant the dress is hideous.

MargotLovedTom Mon 07-Mar-16 12:04:15

Well if you like it , then that's all that matters.

PrivatePike Mon 07-Mar-16 12:05:49

My taste can be dodgy shock

candykane25 Mon 07-Mar-16 12:05:56

The skirt is very Spring wedding.
The dress if you like it, great, but not wedding attire.

PrivatePike Mon 07-Mar-16 12:11:13

Why isn't the dress wedding attire?

Thistledew Mon 07-Mar-16 12:11:35

The dress is great, if you are a stick-this 18 year old, and team it with brown brogues, a thick leather belt, scruffy denim jacket and funky hair. If that doesn't apply to you, it will just look frumpy.

The skirt is inoffensive for a wedding.

WicksEnd Mon 07-Mar-16 12:16:43

Sorry dont like either of them.
The dress looks like something my nan would have worn. The skirt is a frumpy length and an odd shape.
But apart from that....... They're greatgrin

The fabric pattern and style just aren't suitable for a wedding, it wouldn't look as though you'd done more than put on an everyday dress.

PrivatePike Mon 07-Mar-16 12:19:25

(My question wasn't cross btw, I did want to know about wedding attire suitability!)

Gileswithachainsaw Mon 07-Mar-16 12:19:57

They are both awful. looks like sofa cushion material.

but that's not important. if you like it you should by it regardless of what others think.

LadyStark Mon 07-Mar-16 12:21:31

The dress will look great if you're young, tall, very thin and beautiful. If you're a mere mortal it will be hard to pull off. I do like it though!
