For summer or winter?

For big boobs or small?

For a wedding or a party?

For you or your teenage daughter?

CoolToned Mon 03-Oct-16 12:38:36


Small boobs.


No child.

No, it's hideous.

The cut looks like a maternity dress that's too short

And the neck looks restrictive

Think it looks like something my daughter might wear (she's 6).

KoalaDownUnder Mon 03-Oct-16 12:42:39

No. I can't get on board with these weird, too-short, sticky-outy party dresses on adults.

It looks like a little girl's cheap party frock.

Same as the weird two part one you posted last week.

MoreGilmoreGirls Mon 03-Oct-16 12:47:14

It's a no from me

GinIsIn Mon 03-Oct-16 12:47:18

It's the same style as the one you posted about the other week, so I'm afraid same answer - no. Not unless you are 7 and wearing it with knee socks to a kids party!

Maxine that's just rude.

I think the dress could be nice but I think someone young (under 30) would have to wear it to be able to pull it off.

You definitely need to style it like the model for it work bold courts and bright lips.

GingerbreadLatteToGo Mon 03-Oct-16 12:50:01

No. not even on a child.

It looks like someone has run out of fabric to make the top the right way, i.e. The pattern the same way as the skirt.

Plus that shirt sticky out style looks ridiculous on adults IMO

Looks a bit too nightie-ish. Sorry!

CalmYaTits Mon 03-Oct-16 12:50:44

I like it smile OP if you like it, wear it! It makes me sad that people need others approval to wear the things they like. You should dress for you, not to please other people.

GingerbreadLatteToGo Mon 03-Oct-16 12:50:47

Shirt. Bloody iPhone. Short

burnishedsilver Mon 03-Oct-16 12:54:54

I like it. It wouldn't suit me but for a summer party, with no kids, it's nice.

Landoni112 Mon 03-Oct-16 12:57:19

Too short, sorry

3Eggses Mon 03-Oct-16 12:58:53

No. It's too short for it's cut and the frilly bits are horrible.

Is there something particular you are after? Maybe then people can give recommendations rather than shooting down your suggestions? (I was a nay-sayer on your other dress threads too).

Loyly Mon 03-Oct-16 13:01:40

No, it looks designed for a child.

Waxlyrically Mon 03-Oct-16 13:04:46

I quite like it OP. Although I am too old for it it would look nice on a twenty something. I would grunge it up though perhaps with opaques and docs.

GinAndOnIt Mon 03-Oct-16 13:15:10

OP, you obviously like this style of dress, so just get one! It doesn't matter if half of MN doesn't like it.

It's hard to say yes or no to a dress without knowing your age bracket, body shape, size, colouring etc etc. If you're really not sure, I'd do as I suggested on your other thread and start a post describing what you need the dress for and the info above.

Nabootique Mon 03-Oct-16 13:39:17

I like it! The only bit I'm not sure about is the frilly neck. I think I preferred that cream one you posted (did you decide against that one as you weren't sure about the warm tones?). I get that the OP is asking for an opinion, but there are ways of getting it across without being so rude hmm

brodchengretchen Mon 03-Oct-16 13:40:38

It's a little....umm...nerdy? Unless that's the look you're going for, or are Alexa Chung. smile

I like it. But I like flared dresses, skater dresses, shirt dresses etc.

CoolToned Mon 03-Oct-16 20:12:56

StatisticallyChallenged - I like flared and skater dresses too. I'm a rectangle flat-chested, so these work for my body.

Thanks for the opinion everyone!
