SimonHowl Sun 25-Oct-09 10:28:51

The garish prints in horrid fabrics are still there but I think it's their attempt to cater for a plus size woman who wants to wear "bold prints".

Anyway, horrid tunic aside there's definitely some wearable dresses in there. I wouldn't be surprised to see this one in French Connection and I quite like the look of the velvet one with sheer sleeves.

I don't think I've worn velvet since a childhood Christmas party when my Mum put me in purple cullottes and I couldn't get the button done up. She used an elastic band to hold them closed. Oh the shame of it.

so, formal dinner (sporting dinner) for work - entertaining contacts and (hopefully) prospective clients.
I'm 37, size 13, 173cm.
Which dress?
grey lace
black velvet & sheer tunic
green twist maxi

The black velvet ChasingSquirrels.

The bow on the back of the green one looks awful.

I do like to go into shops where I am the hippest young thing there, rather than Top Shop where I feel like Nurse Gladys Emanuel

CybilAviationAuthority Sun 25-Oct-09 11:29:50

I'm off to Jaques Vert

ChasingSquirrels Sun 25-Oct-09 11:36:51

bow is awful, hadnt looked at the back. shame as I like the front.

Nice styles but what's with all the polyester though?

MaggieBruja Sun 25-Oct-09 12:02:49

i WAS GOING to buy [[ this]] coat from Boden,

but then i saw this wallis one for half the price!

Are they not very similar?

and .......... wallis deliver free to ireland. I bought two lovely jersey dresses which were forty pounds on wallis on line and and sixty euro in the irish branches of wallis shops here so I saved nearly 20 euro on the dresses.

I hope the other shops will also follow their lead and deliver free to Ireland!

MaggieBruja Sun 25-Oct-09 12:05:40

my link... oops. hang on

this was the boden one i liked

MaggieBruja Sun 25-Oct-09 12:14:28

I bought this wallis dress


and this one here

quality not boden, but they aren't frumpy lengths either. above the knee not two inches below it.

Ooh Simon I like that velvet one with the sheer sleeves - it might be the LBD I was after for Xmas. Possibly a bit short for me, may go and try it. Agree wallis is v variable indeed.

MaggieBruja Sun 25-Oct-09 12:18:39

lol just noticed that the second dress I bought is 'posh'. Well, I just can't hide my real self, even on a gingerale and chips budget.... grin
