Ugly or gorgeous?
Or a bit meh
I'm drawn to it because of the colours, and the shape, the neckline and the length.
Plus think it looks versatile and would work with black tights if cold, cold wear a jacket or a 50's cardi in pink.
Is it a yes or a no?

I vote yes :-)

burnishedsilver Mon 30-May-16 12:50:43

That's yes to the dress, not yes it's ugly!

i dont know! (<<< not helpful)

i dont think i like it, it looks a bit, well, swimming costume-y if you get me? its the dark bit in the middle

i'm a no

Wow! Amazing dress - definite yes!

freshprincess Mon 30-May-16 12:52:36

I like the print and the colours but it doesn't look quite right on the model. It looks a bit cheap and doesn't like right around the waist

rightknockered Mon 30-May-16 12:56:44

I think the black bit in the middle is slimming. If it was an all over print that large, it would be too much no?

MoggyP Mon 30-May-16 12:57:59

I don't know if it's badly lit or if the fabric has an awkward sheen to it.

Also, I don't think the balance between the black bit and the floral is terribly good. And could easily fight jackets and cardigans.

It's very nearly lovely, but not for me.

Madbengalmum Mon 30-May-16 13:04:33

It really doesnt suit the model

Trills Mon 30-May-16 13:05:19

I don't like the large swathe of black in the middle of the floral.

I also don't like the pose and shape of the model.

SapphireStrange Mon 30-May-16 13:09:55

I like it. Lovely!

StillStayingClassySanDiego Mon 30-May-16 13:13:46

I love it!

Paulat2112 Mon 30-May-16 13:14:41

No, it's not nice

This one?

twostepsister Mon 30-May-16 13:46:09

Want ... it's gorgeous, I have a top and bag in a similar print

Queenbean Mon 30-May-16 13:49:56

First one is nicer and is gorgeous!!

ElodieS Mon 30-May-16 13:53:33

I vote the second one, really lovely and quite unusual without being ott.

SapphireStrange Mon 30-May-16 13:53:42

I like them both but would go for the first one if it's either/or. Nicer shape, IMO.

rightknockered Mon 30-May-16 14:26:15

I should have added this earlier. I'm a size 10 - 12, have olive skin and dark hair (which is dyed blue black at the moment) so black with brightish floral suits my colouring. I don't suit pastels, or the wishy washy pink nude shades around at the moment.
I need a dress for weddings this year, but want it to be a bit more versatile that that, and maybe for dinner, or going out too. Realise that is a stretch, but thought these would fit the purpose.

burnishedsilver Mon 30-May-16 14:37:14

The middle section of the first dress looks navy on my screen. Is it black or navy?

rightknockered Mon 30-May-16 14:39:11

It's black. I'm ordering from Asos on 20% off. I can always return it if it isn't right.

rightknockered Mon 30-May-16 14:40:14

No I think it's navy

NashvilleQueen Mon 30-May-16 14:40:17

Think the first one would be very flattering. Nice neckline and I like the fact that there's a bit of shoulder coverage (hate my arms). I like it.

MuttonCadet Mon 30-May-16 14:44:06

Love them both, Ted Baker suits a slim silhouette lmo, you sound perfect for it.

rightknockered Mon 30-May-16 14:44:31

Yes, I like the fact I can actually wear a proper bra with it. And it isn't too low cut at the front, plus will cover my dodgy knees
