I think these are beautiful. I know they became a trend a year ago, but I then saw a girl in Paris wearing a white and blue one on Rue de Rivoli looking so stylish yet so casual and elegant at the same time I just wanted one. Also pregnant so very attracted to loose clothes at the moment... these are the style of dress, but I would want one from eBay (i.e. The cheap version!). What do you think? Do they look crazy?

I absolutely love them and the similar vintage Indian dresses in the floaty fabric.

Gorgeous. If you find a link to cheap versions, please post!

I saw a Polish designed 'blouse' in TK Maxx the other day and saw it was an embroidered wet weather 'jumper'(?). Lovely to look at but odd.

The embroidery was gorgeous.

I lived in Eastern Europe for ten years. They look far too 'traditional craft' for me. I like the Urban Outfitters one though.

I adore them! They are actually very versatile and can be dressed up or down, I could see myself never taking it off if I find 'the one'. I am also on the hunt for a not too pricey version as the ones I saw initially are well over a grand.

Wary of the eBay ones from china though, I did see someone on Instagram post a boutique In London selling them, and her blog is all about cheaper versions of designer, but they don't have a website.

Have you seen Innika Choo? Her designs have changed a bit more recently, but she's still got some really lovely ones on her site.

Thanks all, I thought you'd be telling me it will look ludicrous! Will look at the Next links. If anyone buys one post them here! I will too.
