I'm on my yearly hunt for casual Jersey summer dresses with sleeves and a waist and I am tempted by this. White stuff not usually my thing. Have I lost the plot?

Not sure what shoes it would go with either. Certainly not the ones it is styled with.

The colour in the photo with blonde model is very dull, but it looks much nicer on brunette model.
That shape does nothing for me but I'm an odd shape myself.
Are ugly shoes compulsory these days?

I like the pattern but not the twisty front.
Probably because that style would look awful on me.

I don't like it-think you'll find a better jersey dress with sleeves in the supermarket

Loyly Tue 31-Jan-17 21:34:11

I don't like it.

You are deluded sorry.

Oh I really like it!

Ok. Message received. Not in the supermarkets where I am buckeejit! Non UK. White stuff have an offer on international delivery ATM which is why I was looking.

I'm a redhead and that's a very good colour on me. It's hard to find colours in the shops that are.

No, I think the print is hideous. Also not sure if that twist front would work certainly not on me.

WhatchaMaCalllit Tue 31-Jan-17 21:43:46

Have you tried looking on for jersey dresses?

HoHumming Tue 31-Jan-17 21:44:42

Have you looked at Banana Republic for wrap dresses that are a little 'younger'. (I don't mean to offend you, I am no idea what age you are but I think this dress could look frumpy very easily).

SloanyAnne Tue 31-Jan-17 21:44:43

I don't like it and I buy their clothes sometimes.

Bluntness100 Tue 31-Jan-17 21:45:42

I think it looks a bit dated and mumsy to be honest, so I'd also say not for me.

AlwaysTheWinner Tue 31-Jan-17 21:46:35

I think it's nice. But I have no style or sense of fashion so you may not want to listen to me!

margaritasbythesea Tue 31-Jan-17 21:47:20

Yes I think it's a bit grumpy too. I do struggle to find suitable things. Thanks for links. Will check them.

You'd have to have a v flat stomach...

TheHouseOfIllRepute Tue 31-Jan-17 21:48:34

I love it but then I hate most of what is liked on here

Flingmoo Tue 31-Jan-17 21:50:05

I think it's fine, nothing special but fine for everyday wear smile

Judydreamsofhorses Tue 31-Jan-17 21:50:10

Not keen on that at all. I always think White Stuff clothes look like they've been washed a thousand times and have faded horribly even when they're brand new.

ArriettyClock1 Tue 31-Jan-17 21:50:16

Are you whippet thin?

It's pretty horrid, but may look ok if you have zero lumps or bumps.

Why on earth have they styled it with galoshes in the video?

Cousinit Tue 31-Jan-17 21:53:31

Frumpy IMO

HoHumming Tue 31-Jan-17 21:57:42

Any good?

mrwalkensir Tue 31-Jan-17 21:58:33

if you're a redhead with the right figure, it'll be rather lovely - would look awful on me as I have no shape
