I saw someone wearing a dress similar to the attached image at school pick up yesterday. It looked lovely on her but google has only produced the attached result and a quick internet search tells me to steer clear of their website.

Has anyone seen one similar but from a reputable shop? Kicking myself for not asking where it was from.

I’ve seen that on silkfred adverts on FB - am dithering over the navy blue one smile

Thanks, just had a look, can only seem to find it in Black for £69? Do you have a link?

Also never bought from SilkFred - something about companies advertising their clothes on fb makes me nervous - how are their clothes/deliveries?

I saw this dress on eBay but convinced myself for the price it would be paper thin and badly made. The sizing is weird

That’s the same one I found on the dodgy site chish. I was hoping someone might have seen one that was less of a risky purchase! Maybe I’ll see the lady again to ask. Unfortunately I didn’t recognise her and it’s only a small school so I’m not sure she was even a mum, perhaps just a friend/Aunty doing pick up!

Fingers crossed someone turns up knowing it in real life - I suppose for £9 it could be worth a gamble and end up as an expensive duster!

I've found a vaguely similar style on asos m.asos.com/asos-petite/asos-petite-ruffle-thigh-spilt-high-neck-maxi-dress/prd/8991237
Not as casual as the one you linked, but it did make me laugh that on one of the pics you can see the model's undershorts. Not sure that's a good look!

Never fully dressed had one quite similar.

closephine85 Fri 04-May-18 20:02:43

Thanks Glub, that looks like it could be the one! Out of stock in S/M though sad asked for a notification email when it comes back in.

Next have a Cupro dress that looks similar for £40 ~ pink or charcoal

Never fully dressed with long sleeves

Ive just stumbled across this one on Boden and I’m a sucker for a nautical stripe so have ordered it! m.boden.co.uk/en-gb/womens-dresses/day-dresses/j0128-stp/womens-navy_ivory-hallie-jersey-dress

ChishandFips33 Sun 13-May-18 00:38:56

That's lovely. Hopefully, it being Boden, you'll get decent quality

My niece was wearing a striped version of the one you posted, the other day, and said it was from Silkfred.

Ollivander84 Sun 13-May-18 00:59:42

This is the one I saw on a friend

closephine85 Sun 13-May-18 14:07:28

Thanks all, I think the SilkFred and Never Fully Dressed ones are the same and go out of stock faster than I can order. Will report back on whether the Boden one fits the bill!

Lulusmother Sun 10-Jun-18 16:26:39

I think I've found that dress! I loved it on your post... anyhow look at Next Lipsy L84-254 .... looks pretty similar. Tried to upload a pic but can't ahhhhh

Lulusmother Sun 10-Jun-18 16:27:35

Ooh well done me for managing that!

closephine85 Sun 10-Jun-18 20:21:48

Ooh thanks! That does look like a pretty good match! Might have to order it. I sent the Boden one back, it was really thick material and looked frumpy!

BanningTheWordNaice Sun 10-Jun-18 20:25:54

Not RTFT but I’ve bought stuff from dancing leopard and silk Fred and liked it. The fabric has never been the quality I expected but the fit has been good.

Lulusmother Wed 13-Jun-18 21:33:12

So dress came...I'm normally a 14 so ordered 16 &14. Both huge. Ordered a 12 which is fine.... however.... it's very long, I'm 5"9 and surprisingly long enough for me and has a sack like look to it. Have taken the belt off it and put a black chunky belt on it as it's quite a high neckline. I like it though !
