So why did you buy them?

peachypetite Thu 09-Aug-18 14:57:53

What were you thinking? 😂

AimeeJx Thu 09-Aug-18 14:58:21

They look like something a Mormon would wear.

In your 20s you can definitely style the first 2 with modern accessories/ hair and look pretty cool. The third is irredeemable I’m afraid. grin

AimeeJx Thu 09-Aug-18 14:59:39

Personally I would acessorise them with fire.

Scribblegirl Thu 09-Aug-18 14:59:51

Photos are tiny but I quite like 1 and 2!

3... oh god, sorry grin

You misread the memo. It’s the 90s that are back in fashion.

I have a vintage Laura Ashley dress. Always lots of compliments.

Atalune Thu 09-Aug-18 15:02:06

Is it for a fancy dress thing?

Or are you Alexa Chung?

1. Ok
2. Like
3. Horrible and frumpy
I suppose it depends how you are going to style them. Number 2 might be nice for a wedding. What is your usual style like?

Are you going for the Vampire’s wife look?!

BoyInTheOven Thu 09-Aug-18 15:09:00

I'd love to cut them up for their fabric!

I think as they are they'd be quite hard to pull off 😬

Baumederose Thu 09-Aug-18 15:09:12

Are they for making curtains?

(Sorry)

PatMustardsHairyBaby Thu 09-Aug-18 15:11:01

There's good vintage Laura Ashley and then there's bad.

Those are bad. Unless you're so inherently cool that you can even make ugly sister-wife dresses look good in which case 👍

StoatofDisarray Thu 09-Aug-18 15:12:07

They are revolting. Nothing can save them. Sell them on!

MrsDarcyIwish Thu 09-Aug-18 15:12:39

I quit like them, op....except the third one but because of the colour, not the style.

At least you will be the only one (--under 70--) wearing them!

flowery Thu 09-Aug-18 15:13:52

I love the third one, by far the nicest!
