No particular occasion....

Lovely if you have the legs for it, it's quite short. Love the colours.

DavetheCat2001 Thu 11-Aug-16 16:53:03

Thanks. It is a bit on the short side isn't it?

I do really like the colours/style, I'm just wondering if I'd be brave enough to wear it!

DavetheCat2001 Thu 11-Aug-16 16:58:27

Do you think it would work with sandals/ballet pumps?

DavetheCat2001 Thu 11-Aug-16 18:20:21

Impulse bought!

It can go back if it looks crap on me.

The stripes not lining up through the side seam make it look very cheap - which it is. If you're not bothered about that, it's good.

What's going on with the stripes? Not lining up at all.

DavetheCat2001 Thu 11-Aug-16 18:38:38

who knows?

If it looks crap it's going back.

Do you think it needs heels or would flats work?

Agree with PP it looks a bit cheap to me, and the 100% polyester would put me off.

However, if you have the legs and upper arms for it, and don't have big boobs I think it would look nice. I like that style, just think this isn't a stunning example of it IYSWIM?

Its nice. I'd prefer if it wasn't 100% polyester.

DavetheCat2001 Thu 11-Aug-16 19:50:21

I have small bobbing and tonedish arms so we shall see.

A lot of Oasis dresses seem to be polyester unfortunately.

Still it was cheapish so no great shakes.

I may post a pic of me in it when it arrives if I'm feeling brave grin

for 'bobbing' read 'boobidge'..bloody autocorrect!

I'm the stripes not lining up camp. Sorry.

TerrificHons Thu 11-Aug-16 19:56:09

Mmmm, agree about the stripes not adding up. Cheapen it completely

DavetheCat2001 Thu 11-Aug-16 20:25:26

Yeah I can see what you are all saying, I think that's why I umm'd and ahh'd about it for so long.

The strips seem to give an optical effect. It may work on those trying to look with smaller hips.

Lweji Thu 11-Aug-16 20:26:24

or stripes...

HairySubject Thu 11-Aug-16 20:29:23

I think the strops are intentionally not lined up but yes that would bug me.

DavetheCat2001 Thu 11-Aug-16 20:36:16

They seem to line up on the front and back panels, but not the sides..

puglife15 Thu 11-Aug-16 20:47:42

The stripes are purposefully off-set I think.

I'm not a fan but I think mainly because it would look awful on my figure and colouring!

Post a pic OP!

what do you think? hmm

happypoobum Wed 17-Aug-16 21:23:24

It looks a bit big on you.

DavetheCat2001 Wed 17-Aug-16 21:35:01

I thought that, but think the smaller size would be too small.

OH thinks it looks really nice, and he is brutally honest when he hates something.

Jury's out I think. I've just flown in from Germany and am shattered so think I'll try it on again tomorrow.

Glittermud Wed 17-Aug-16 21:36:22

I think that it looks fresh and elegant on you.
