Do you like this dress?

I saw it in Debenhams at the weekend on a mannequin and just can't decide if I like it or not. The fabric kind of looks like a waffle tea-towel which is clearly awful. And I'm not sure about the colour. But I still find myself strangely drawn to it!

No. Too orange and a bit frumpy.

No, it's awful. It's a boring shape that they've tried to make more interesting by making it a jazzy colour.

Look in Whistles - lovely dress in similar colour with great cut.

MrsLettuce Mon 18-Apr-16 20:57:19

Yes and no. Orange is great. The back is lovely. If you've got a bit of an edge to you / your look it could be fab. It could equally easily be frumpy.

Have you tried it on?

Yes I like the style - it's a fit and flare Audrey thing, isn't it? Don't like the colour at all though, and the shoes just look hideous with it.

this is nice

No haven't tried it on, just saw it on our way whizzing through Debenhams to the car park. I looked it up on the website when we got home and have added it to my basket but am still hesitating.
I like bright colours so maybe that's dazzling me! That and the fact it's a decent length which is rare for dresses on me (I'm 5'11"). Will have a look at the other suggestions.

I definitely don't have an edge sadly, would tend more towards the frump side of the scale. blush

sucking I guess this is the whistles dress you meant? The problem is the length, the model is just a touch shorter than me and I'd like something below-the-knee.

mrs lettuce, can't get the asos link to work?

Pricey though and maybe too dressy?

MrsLettuce Mon 18-Apr-16 21:42:23

ASOS is being pants with links ATM. Was the 'Love Debutante Textured Prom Dress' but it's on rather than under the knee, I'm afraid.

ToastyMcToastface Mon 18-Apr-16 22:01:22

Lovely dress sucking but def too pricey! It's not for a particular occasion, just an out and about dress. I think I'll give the orange tea towel one a go, can always send it straight back!

MrsLettuce Mon 18-Apr-16 22:03:23

yy try it. Who knows!

I like it, I think it's the cut, it's quite clean and elegant. I like the colour, it stops it from being too 'dressy'
Glad you're going to order it, let us know what you think when it arrives!

ToastyMcToastface Mon 18-Apr-16 22:21:51

Yikes Derek I'd be showing my knickers and have my boobs hanging out in that one! I think my days of sexy side boob are well behind me <adjusts sturdy boulder holder>

I think it's a great colour - wish I could wear it. There's something about the cut that doesn't look quite right to me but I can't put my finger on what it is. It might just be too big on the model. Maybe try it with a proper belt instead of that silly tie thing?
