To be surprised that at how awful these dresses are?

PetCheetah · 30/10/2020 21:39

I'm not sure awful is the right word or why Facebook would think I might like 'Pencil Me In' or 'Treat Yourself'?

I quite like them (but would never buy/wear them).

Are they supposed to be maternity ware or is the way the models are using the pockets

Got to be aimed at primary school teachers to wear to work? No offence to primary school teachers intended!

You might not like them but others do - I certainly do. Tempted by the ‘fish out of water’ dress.

I think if your age is in double figures, you’re too old for them.

Waaay too try-hard quirky.

Not my style but they’re not terrible.

I don't mind 'fish out of water' too much to be fair.

I was expecting something that looks like a sack. They have pockets!

I think too these are for nursery staff or teachers of young children. It’s no different from the patterns on scrubs for paediatric nurses and doctors.

Well I've been put in my place, I like them, though wish the length was a bit longer. Felt really sad when Lindybop was shut down as their prints were gorgeous. These aren't quite as good but kind of in the spirit

I like them, but then I'm not a fan of 'chic' or 'good taste'!

I really like them. I would have worn them when slender and in my 20s. I bet my 19 year old DD would like them. They look decently made.

I don't like how the model's hands appear to be in pockets, but you can't see the outline of their hands. Or maybe they're meant to be behind their backs? In which case it just didn't look right.

I wouldn't wear them but they are 100 x better than any Joules/Fat Face monstrosity I've seen 😟

I know someone i could see wearing them but she works with children in a library (although would totally dress like that nit at work too!). Need a lively eccentric personality to pull them off I think!

I like them. I could not wear the high neck, short skirt though. I am too busty for high neck, too aged to feel happy in a short skirt. Plus the rule of tits or legs not both, and my tits ensure it is always tits.

Now if they did them in Get Cutie styles, I would be in.

I have a skirt with pencils on like that. I have very small children and I bought it because it makes them happy. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Have a look at Popsy dresses. They have pockets, but are a bit more understated than these.
