I can't decide if I like it or not.

She is being eaten by a giant green creature.

Only OK as a stage costume.

No the cut of the dress is fine but the pattern ruins it.

DisappearingFish Sun 21-May-17 18:43:22

grin so that's a no then?

Not keen on a number of levels but especially don't like the hem

Seqkat Sun 21-May-17 18:47:29

I really like it up to the see-through hem, which doesn't fit with ANY of the rest!

Bluntness100 Sun 21-May-17 18:50:15

I usually like lk Bennett. This dress is the exception,😱,

ItsNiceItsDifferentItsUnusual Sun 21-May-17 18:51:27

I'm clearly the exception, I really like it! Would look gorgeous with gold accessories.

DisappearingFish Sun 21-May-17 18:51:40

I was thinking of getting it altered so the hem was in line with the rest of the dress.

DisappearingFish Sun 21-May-17 18:53:50

Rear view in case anyone else in on the fence wink

HelenaJustina Sun 21-May-17 18:55:58

No from me...

beachbodyunready Sun 21-May-17 19:03:55

I prefer the back to the front, but on the whole I dislike the dress.

MadameSzyszkoBohush Sun 21-May-17 19:05:48

I like it!

The colour combination is not right and it looks a little unfinished.
The shape is not good.

TheMightyMing Sun 21-May-17 19:07:57

No ! Sorry . I used to love LK Bennett but it's gone really off in recent years .

HeyRoly Sun 21-May-17 19:10:18

No. It looks horrible on the model, which I find doesn't bode well when it comes to trying it on at home.

I also really dislike the mesh hem hanging lower than the hem of the dress.

originalbiglymavis Sun 21-May-17 19:16:26

It looks like the shell has shrunk.

Sorry but it's a no from me as well

MaryThorne Sun 21-May-17 19:25:42

No, definitely not from me

onalongsabbatical Sun 21-May-17 19:26:12

Definitely things wrong with it, what leaps out at me is the placement of the pattern - is it embroidery? It has a kind of pincer feel to it - like the green bits are some kind of nut-cracker, or, as someone said, she's being eaten by a green creature. It's the jaw-like action of the pattern. I think that's why the back's a bit better, it doesn't close in in the same way.

NurseButtercup Sun 21-May-17 19:26:27

I like it but, I wear a lot of bright colours with contrasting patterns. Not everybody's cup of tea. I'm not sure about the mesh/see through hem...don't understand this trend. Have you tried it on yet?

DisappearingFish Sun 21-May-17 19:29:46

Haven't bought it yet, am watching it on eBay. Shall I remove it from my watch list?
