It is jersey, I tried it on last week and it didn't cling but I tried a 12 and it was too big in the bust area so was thinking of ordering a ten and seeing if it fits. I am 29 though, wanted it for my 30th and a friends 30th this weekend! To wear with leggings and bright pink heels. Oh dear would it look a bit wrong?
I'm sorry but I don't think you should wear that dress with leggings and bright pink heels. And I think you need something a bit more "wow" for your 30th, it's an important occasion! one that you will look back on with fondness and a few tears Take it from my haggard 36 yo self
You are right letthemeatcake but what? I really can't find anything that doesn't make e look enormous. I need something for this saturday but it doesnt have to be what I wear for my birthday necessarily. Just seen a couple of nice ones in warehose but I am pretty sure they would emphasize my big hips and bum! What would you put the dress with? Although I am swiftly going off it and would rather find a better one!
by the way, your description of yourself - I'm 5.10 ish and 12-14 on the bottom, 10-12 on top. Dark hair and brown eyes - cold just about be me (or at least me when I am not pregnant, as I am now) Don't go thinking that you can't wear a more pencil-ly shape, just cos you;re a pear.
otherwise, I am selling a rather gorgeous once-worn Karen Millen prom-dress on ebay at the mo .. won't say any more because I know there are rules about self-promotion and whatnot.
Nope, I don't like it either. And not for your 30th. It is like a Laura Ashley print from the 80's and not in a good way. But if you could see what I am wearing now you wouldn't dream of taking style advice from me!!!
TPP just seen your post missed it earlier. No hopefully not for my party as long as I can find something pretty but I'm getting desperate to find soething for a friends birthday this weekend. It will be just a few bars rather than a party but I'd rather find something with a bt more coverage tbh.
Oh thanks for the links I have had a quick look but have to take over with DD now so will come back later to look properly. I love the pattern on the last one but think I want little sleeves maybe to cover bra straps as I am flat chested but droopy . Your one is beautiful but yes too much for where we are going, shame!
Bump for opinions on the warehouse dress I linked to, or failing that, any codes for discount at warehouse? I can't help but feel that at that price I could maybe find something better but I won't know until I try it on and don't want to risk waiting till thursday when I can get to the shops. They do free returns anyway.
