I'm in warmer climes for the duration of the UK winter so should get lots of chances to wear them. Am 5'10", 10 stone, long black hair - do you like them and do you reckon they will look ok?

I like the shorter one best, the maxi one would drown me grin

both too expensive for me though!

Yes I like them, especially as they will suit your description.

My eyes are watering at the prices though.

Some people may think you are showing off slightly though.....wink

I like the maxi dress and as you're tall you'll be able to get away with it. It sounds as though it will work well with your colouring too. I'm not so fond of the shorter one, but it's not bad, just not my taste.

Blimey you buy a lot of clothes Stargazing wink

I'd look odd popping to tesco in those beauties. I don't have the lifestyle for them (or the money) blush

sod them. I'm simply asking for an opinion from someone other than my (completely disinterested) husband - have recently had dc3 and feeling a bit unsure about clothing and style. Am I only supposed to link to Primark?!!!

btw I bought them from the US site, half the price of UK, £65 each. So not so eyewatering. £130 a pop is ridiculous.

i like the first one not the second one but i think they are very over priced

Tutter Mon 14-Jul-08 16:35:26

love the first

am not a fan of maxi dresses though

Stargazing Mon 14-Jul-08 16:37:11

Again - did not pay the UK price!! Please - am not a complete idjut!

TheFallenMadonna Mon 14-Jul-08 16:37:35

Sorry, meant to say I like the first one a lot.

I really like the look of the shorter one, but can't exactly imagine when a person would normally wear it. It hardly school run attire. The first one sounds like it will suit you, I love maxi dresses.

They both look fantastic, and I think you will look great in them.

Fimbo Mon 14-Jul-08 16:38:36

Bet you're wishing you had put the prices you paid for in the op now! grin

Flier Mon 14-Jul-08 17:07:40

Not a fan of maxi dresses, but, from your description, you will suit it. Think the other ones is lovely.

Flier Mon 14-Jul-08 17:10:10

shock the short one is only $135!

Boco Mon 14-Jul-08 17:12:08

I think they're both lovely, you'll look great envy

as you are a tall willowy black haired person I imagine you will look amazing in them both. Fabulous colours for your colouring.
