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
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

Monzeitia Sat 12-May-18 07:56:44

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!

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

sundayblanket Sun 13-May-18 05:01:00

This one is similar?

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 !
