looks like a 50s maternity dress to me.

but im not a boden fan apart from the kids stuff.

It's just so...........boden.

Dated frumpy design in granny's curtains material. Not good.

no, it looks presentable on the model who is doing her best to disguise it by hunkering down and hiding behind a book. when you look at it straight on it is sub les dawson mother of the bride. you are nice and slim get yourself to a real shop and buy a nice dress.

It seems 50s is the fashion for a lot of city people in their 40s.

As the others have said, it is very .......Boden.

50s maternity is right. There are nicer dresses out there.

I agree. Looks nice on the model but not when you can see it just hanging there (in blue). It's just a bit shapeless. And overpriced IMO.

okay- won't buy!

Is it the jersey or the floral you like?

Hobbs has a lovely-looking floral dress in their "Heriatge" range - it's called "NW3" or something. I can't find it on-line. And I saw some pretty dresses in Kew the other day.

this one

Bunny - Wow! You are good with a website! I could not find that bit of the site.

I think I meant this one - though I hate that bow/ribbon thing.

I saw it in a feature in a magazine, rather than in RL.

Hmmm. Studying it now, I think your dress is more appropriate for running around and doing things. I just really like 50s style, fitted things ... .

God that Hobbs dress is gorgeous. But agreed that it is perhaps not for everyday, esp at that price, you would not want it to get potentially spoilt.

I think that all the boden dresses this season are very bland. There will be better in the shops come spring so hang fire i think.

I adore that Hobbs dress. What would you wear it with though? Im a 16 and thats too big to wear leggings, even though I have slim legs its my middle that lets me down!

awful, but if you think that's bad, look at the tea dress in the pale green colour. it's a toss up which is the frumpiest.

SixtyFootGhoul Fri 23-Oct-09 21:35:31

gopping = disgussting

Hobbs looks shapeless and like floral curtains or wall paper. And a very silly price.

Hideous, frumpy and old.
