Mumsnut Wed 10-Jun-09 16:31:31

Looks quite short - I could only wear it over leggings jeans ...

FlorenceAndtheWashingMachine Wed 10-Jun-09 16:33:23

Tis nice. I might get one to wear with my Birkies when the summer arrives.

ReginaCovington Wed 10-Jun-09 16:54:21

is it....gasp

the school run dress?
i have ordered in green navy and purple( oyu get free deliv then and free returns)

GrapefruitMoon Wed 10-Jun-09 17:02:53

Too short for me too - looks like it would be more like a top on me!

JackieNo Wed 10-Jun-09 17:05:01

It's made of viscose and elastane - won't it make you sweaty wink? So from that point of view, I'd say not the school run dress. Shape's nice though, for those with good legs.

ReginaCovington Wed 10-Jun-09 17:10:56

i thought viscose is a good thing for sweat? natural made out of nuts or summat.

ReginaCovington Wed 10-Jun-09 17:11:58

wood pulp

No Sweat

Nylon and polyester do not absorb water, and because your sweat cannot evaporate they can be unpleasant to wear. This is why nylon feels clammy. Sheets made from 100% cotton, linen or even silk (should you be so lucky) are more comfortable than nylon sheets because your sweat is absorbed by the fabric, and then evaporates. It is this absorbency which makes viscose so comfortable to wear.

It comes in 4 colours...

TheDevilWearsPenneys Wed 10-Jun-09 17:13:11

It looks like a shoddy copy of the chloe dress a few of us have.

Lizzylou Wed 10-Jun-09 17:14:36

OOH, it's really nice.
Love the purple.

ReginaCovington Wed 10-Jun-09 17:15:30

lol at shoddy.

JackieNo Wed 10-Jun-09 17:16:34

Well yes, I like viscose, but I didn't think you got on with it. Sorry - must have been someone else.

ReginaCovington Wed 10-Jun-09 17:17:17

oh well since someone told em i was imagining the swweat properties of viscose I am transformed

TheDevilWearsPenneys Wed 10-Jun-09 17:18:33

this is the bad boy.

it's amazing. Works with heels or with flats for 'school run' (snurk)

FenellaFudge Wed 10-Jun-09 17:19:01

have you a little club TDWP?

MacaroonIncident Wed 10-Jun-09 17:20:38


Fimbo Wed 10-Jun-09 17:22:00

Yikes, just as well you can see on the model that Chloe dress is short. On its own it reminds me of dresses my gran use to wear or something HRH would.

Reg's is better grin

MacaroonIncident Wed 10-Jun-09 17:22:47

i am MI now.

MacaroonIncident Wed 10-Jun-09 17:23:06

FenellaFudge Wed 10-Jun-09 17:24:04

"It looks like a shoddy copy of the chloe dress a few of us have"

Just sounded like an elite gathering, like gals at the pony club smile

MacaroonIncident Wed 10-Jun-09 17:24:40


reg was taken.

TheDevilWearsPenneys Wed 10-Jun-09 17:24:47

Club? Indeed.

It's not that short, it's nicely short and very 'not trying too hard'
