I had forgotten just how hot it can be...skirts and T shirts are just too hot....

going away this weekend to Spain- thinking of this dress- is it okay or yuck?

I am a size 8-10 and 5'3" and worried the print is too big....

brown or purple colour? I am a highlighted blonde...and mid 40s.

Thanks! Riveria dress- would you say the skirt is very full- don't want anything too swishy..thinking of the green perhaps?

Fimbo Wed 01-Jul-09 10:32:55

Pity it was this weekend as the sale starts on Friday.

mrsmerryweather Wed 01-Jul-09 10:33:31

Fim...I know!

IpeeFreely Wed 01-Jul-09 10:34:27

skirt if not full, just flared over hips; fitted to body then a gentle skim to knee

(I should write their copy)

I like the green, a lot, in fact I dithered over green or red for hours


IpeeFreely Wed 01-Jul-09 10:35:04

Aaargh skirt IS not full, not IF not full, sorry

mrsmerryweather Wed 01-Jul-09 10:51:01

thanks ladies- ordered the green in 2 sizes to try!

did the code work?

mrsmerryweather Wed 01-Jul-09 11:06:55

I phoned as I wanted express delivery- £6! However she offered me 15% discount automatically- I tried the mumsnet link and it gave me a discount and I think it took off £10 too withthe code but then it all got complicated as I didn't want free P&P...I need it express- that's why I phoned.

so..if you phone you should get offered 15% off.

worth it though, you will look stunning
