A topshop special, was looking for holiday frocks and stumbled upon it.

So, could you?

Just stick a wand in their hand, christmas tree up their arse then it's perfect!

For those not stupid confident enough to go for the tutu they have a gorgeous fringed tie dye dress.

That one with the nose and the gnarled hands out of that show in Manhattan where they drink out of strange glasses and she ponces about in her pants smoking and typing dull columns. Her. She'd wear it.

my 17 year old niece would look fab in it!

i on the other hand would be laughed out of town

yes i think it is a cheapo version of the sjp type dress. v. nasty.

KingRolo Thu 30-Jul-09 21:06:33

It's out of stock in sizes 6, 8 and 10 but lots of 12, 14 and 16 still available for us 'larger' ladies grin.

shock at the tie-dye dress!

There really are no words...

Very vivid description django! am roffling here...
"gnarled hands" <<shakes head>>

ewe- I think only people who wear their hair in bunches would wear it.

daisyj Thu 30-Jul-09 21:12:32

Well, I could imagine pulling it off in horror, tearing at the zip and yelling 'get it off me'. Is that what you meant...?

Ewe Thu 30-Jul-09 21:14:04

Oh yes, I can see it now, hair in bunches, tutu dress, kooky tights and an elmo backpack.


I might try it on tomorrow for fun though, think they'll have tonnes a few size 14s left grin

not for anyone older than 7.

Not in a million years as a rapidly expanding 37 yr old woman.

Saw two girls carrying it around in topshop earlier, very brave.

jemart Fri 31-Jul-09 16:06:32

For a party, a hen night maybe, teamed with very high sparkly shoes.
I'd need a darker colour though as pale pink does not suit me.

MamaLazarou Fri 31-Jul-09 16:35:53

Yes, punked up a bit with some boots and eyeliner - why not? Am I too old at 33?

southeastastra Fri 31-Jul-09 16:37:04

no it's hideous

Overmydeadbody Fri 31-Jul-09 16:40:29

Yes I could pull it off but I don't like it and would not choose to wear it. And they're out of my size anyway.

Tidey Fri 31-Jul-09 16:42:36

Courtney Love circa 1993 probably could.

Ewe Fri 31-Jul-09 21:49:24

So I went back to topshop this afternoon (it IS payday after all) and found it in black and it is lovely blush I tried it on and everything.

Didn't buy it but was sorely tempted.

<eats words>
