I saw the most gorgeous dress today.

(25 Posts)

Unfortunately it was being worn rather than in a shop so I have no idea where its from. I didn't dare ask the very glam lady where it came fro mas I was in the middle of a bike ride and felt very sweaty and frumpy. So now I'm online searching every shop going looking for it, of course it could be 5 years old.

It was electric blue, with a kind of scalloped hem. Just above knee length and with some sort of colour/pattern above the hem. Has anyone seen anything like it recently? I want this dress badly.

was it this if so I have one and wore it last weekend and got SO many compilments, it looks far nicer on than the website does it justice!

I've got one similar to the image and the description. It was from Primark and was £12 grin

Clure - its very similar to that dress but I don't think the one I saw was strapless.

here is worth a look, at least to find a similar style, narrow it down a wee bit.

Kew, Top Shop, Toast, might have something in that style...or matches.

I had a look, but saw nothingthat matched what you have described.

I bet its my one from Primark grin. It has an eleasticated waist and a low neck. The hem, neckline and sleeve edge are all cut old and finished with gold embroidery.

that is a nice frock suwoo

That was some good detective work FlyingMonkey. I am hugely pregnant too and it looks fabe over leggings with gold gladiator sandals if I say so myself wink.

I have it in the black too. Its actually much, much nicer in real life.

Aggggh, the auction's ended and the link doesn't show a pic now. Still I'm off to Primark tomorrow. Thanks. smile

i dont like.

littlelamb Mon 01-Jun-09 20:13:55

I tried that on thinking it would be lovely but I htink you have to be a whippet to pull it off. It looks like they put the waist a few inches too low

suwoo Mon 01-Jun-09 21:05:13

I aint no whippet littlelamb, I am a heavily pregnant waddling person. I still have room in the 14 though wink.

Grattage, that picture does it no justice whatsoever.

littlelamb Mon 01-Jun-09 21:40:12

Ah but pregnant people have special dispensation from usual fashion rules. I wore things when I was pregnant that I wouldn't get away with without bump. I am sure it looks lovely on you

suwoo Mon 01-Jun-09 21:44:56

Thanks littlelamb grin. I think the waist is a bit high actually, it sits just under my boobs.

<<ponders the quality control at Primarni>>

I've got it. grin It is the Primark one and it looks fab on. Thanks for tracking it down for me.

Brokenspacebar, I have added ShopStyle to my faves - what a useful site! smile

I saw a woman wearing "your" dress at the weekend Stripey, it is lovely.
Lovely colour too.

suwoo Tue 02-Jun-09 16:01:52

<<coughs>> Ahem

I think you'll find it was me who said it would be that one.

<<graciously accepts all thanks>>

Thanks Suwoo smile

suwoo Tue 02-Jun-09 17:02:34

grin.

Did you get the black or the horrible yellow aswell? I've got the black and the blue.

Just got the blue. We have 2 Primarks in town and at the first one they only had yellow ones left. Wonder why? wink

I saw that in primark the black is lovely and much better quality than they usually sell.

Do you think this cardigan would go with the blue dress? I've been struggling to think what colour would go and thought either orange or white.
