Hi there,

What does everyone think of this dress? I think it will either look great or weird, once on.

Hope this link works,3,,dresses

I like it.

And I think it will suit pretty much any shape.

the large pattern would only suit someone tallish and slim I think,but otherwise it's nice

i like the retro print but think that that, plus the waistband, plus the ruffle bit is too much. Big, loud funky print needs a plainer style. Waistband or ruffle, not both

I think the ruffle makes it look chap, without it though t would be fab

you will need to have good tits and a small arse otherwise is amazingly badly cut.

tbh I think you've picked the one naff one out of LA's summer bunch.

all their other bold-floral ones are lovely, but the ruffle on that one is just a bit too much. Monsoon is worth a look as well.

I don't like it to be honest

I wouldn't suit it.

I think it calls for dark hair & long legs. I have neither.

Redfox Fri 29-Jun-07 22:45:02

yes I love the retro print but maybe the ruffle is too much. Er I am pale with dark hair but yes have to try it on to see

I may order it and see, Laura Ashley have a good returns policy.

I am so sick of all these smock top/dresses in the shops at the moment!

Thanks gals

not keen on the colours or the largeness of of the print, don't think they suit the cut of the dress.

Agree with Star.
Thre is a touch of floral bedspread to it.
