Do you think that this dress would look nice on me?

I am tall, well 5,10', I am curvy size 16 (ie 38E) and I have shoulder length blond wavy hair.
I am going to a super-cool wedding and I have a very limited budget. So would I look like Bet Lynch in that dress?

Ah you would need a link here

RubySlippers Thu 24-Jul-08 22:15:27

am assuming a certain amount of animal print is involved

what dress??

maidamess Thu 24-Jul-08 22:16:25

OOh print a bit cheap bold

lilolilmanchester Thu 24-Jul-08 22:16:40

You'd have to try it on. It could look either completely fab or completely naff.

I think you would look very foxy!

depends on shoes, hair etc. Could be classy or not, depending on accessories.

Please don't buy it nice lady.

RubySlippers Thu 24-Jul-08 22:17:23

ooh - sexy


harpomarx Thu 24-Jul-08 22:17:59

am normally a sucker for any animal print (espurrcially leopard). But... that dress is confusing me. What is the belt scarf down the side combo all about?

RubySlippers Thu 24-Jul-08 22:18:20

hair like this natch

Carmenere Thu 24-Jul-08 22:18:35

Yes, you see I think I might be brave slutty enough to pull it off.
I don't have the budget to buy something fab so I'm thinking go a bit flashy.

Depends how you accessorise and do your hair.

RubySlippers Thu 24-Jul-08 22:19:32

v neck is excellent for larger bust

the nipped in waist will emphasise your curves

think the shape is good

Booboobedoo Thu 24-Jul-08 22:19:51

I love that dress, and a 5'10" blonde would look stunning. Imo.

The shape is demure though, even though the print is a bithmm I will of course have to try it on.
