That confused me - first link is wallis but I agree they aren't nice.

ClaireDeLoon Tue 25-Aug-09 10:35:55

Pantomime dress v funny. Interesting that the last dress apparently goes well with 'heals'. hmmgrin

LaDiDaDi Tue 25-Aug-09 10:37:43

That's given me a good giggle.

The last one would "look good with heals" apparently.

x=posts with flowery.

most of the stuff is fugly - but I do quite like that allegra dress (hangs head in shame)...

Heathcliffscathy Tue 25-Aug-09 10:39:06

shock at panto dress!!! someone was not of their right mind when they designed that one...

LevitatingCopy Tue 25-Aug-09 10:39:27

Goes well with heaves more like

FlightHattendant Tue 25-Aug-09 10:41:32

Dreadful. Absolutely dreadful. I do wonder if some of these companies have designers who decide to make one hell of a fugly dress just to see if anyone will actually buy it!

LadyPinkofPinkerton Tue 25-Aug-09 10:48:30

Oh, those are really truly awful! Pantomime dress particularly.

FlightHattendant Tue 25-Aug-09 10:50:05

Monsoon used to do really nice unusual pretty stuff. Now it's just, well BHS specials isn't it sad

On the other hand PER UNA have stepped up their game and have mainlty dictched the <<shh>> corsages by the look of it shock

Perhaps they have started reading MN!!

mollyroger Tue 25-Aug-09 10:51:29

my eyes! My Eyes!!!

They have lost me and I am probably their target market

FlightHattendant Tue 25-Aug-09 10:52:06

...actually I take it back, the corsages are gone but the prints are still mainly horrid.

There are a few nice bits though.

notyummy Tue 25-Aug-09 10:53:03

oh, oh - I saw some minor sleb in a crappy mag wearing that panto dress, with some description beside it saying she was 'fashion forward'.

I showed the dress to DH and we both laughed at her.

I will try and find a link - twas the blonde girl from Gavin and Stacey I think.

Frickin dreadful stuff. The pantomime dress looks like a cross between an apron and a german milkmaid outfit. DP says it's a 70's nightmare that wouldn't look out of place on Blake's 7.

giveloveachance Tue 25-Aug-09 10:54:40

got to agree the pantomine dress made me laugh out loud!!!!

oh my who on earth will wear that!!!!????

they do seem to have lost their way stylistically!!

still laughing at the sight of that dress - its hysterically funny when you think of all the design approval meetings they must have had and yet they still approved it!!!
