Ok, in my quest to clear out some stuff from my wardrobe, should I keep this, or is it just too zig-zaggy?

Last worn in Thailand, pre-children circa 2007.

You have a lovely figure

It's lovely. And looks great on you.

i like's very much not a marquee-a-like, which so many maxi dresses can be

I'd keep it.

I think so too, my DDs tell me the zigzag is back on trend.

I think it looks a little too big on you..........

Keep it for holidays , it will look very dated wearing it day to day now unless you really 'cool' it up .. if you don't care about that then just wear it 😁

Keep! Chevron prints seem to be on sale in a lot of places at the moment

I like that, do keep it.

Thank you! MN S&B'ers help me out once again when OH just gives me a 'yeah, looks ok' usual critique!

It is such a geometric print I just wasn't sure, but it'll do for our hols later in the summer so will keep it.

I just worried I might look like a big zig-zaggy triangle in it!

It's lovely op and suits you well, perfect for summer holidays

Its a lovely shape and fit, but the zigzags give me a headache.

(Everything and nothing gives me a headache, though).

I think it's gorgeous and your skin is lovely!

DavetheCat2001 Tue 18-Apr-17 20:47:12

Thank you Soya. I always think I look really pasty x
