I think maybe its a love it or hate it dress

Is it ok? I'm normally a primark kind of person but I like the colours.

Oh what a shame.

I hate it though when a garment has pulled fabric before you have even bought it.

VivaLeBeaver Sat 29-Jun-13 15:39:04

Well I'm sorry to say I didn't get it.

Tried it on and it looked nice but I didn't love it and don't honestly think I'd wear it a lot. Its too dressy for meeting friends in the pub, or going for a curry which seems to be most of my social events.

Plus because of the material there were quite a few loops on it which were already pulled and snagged and I could see that becoming a lot worse really quickly.

I think I really like it, but it'll be interesting to see how it is on. I wonder does it need a brown skinny belt. Not sure.
I was looking at a vintage Swedish tablecloth on Etsy earlier, your dress reminds me a bit of it IN A GOOD WAY.

I really like it but I'm a little concerned as there are quite a few other RL dresses that I love too!

<waves at Viva> It's Zhu's Mrs!

The dress looks lovely! And you have sucked me into the Ralph Lauren sale!

VivaLeBeaver Fri 28-Jun-13 22:06:35

I'll see if I can sort a photo out if I keep it.

I know it'll be too long as I'm 5ft2" so I'll have to get it altered if I keep it. It's hand wash only as well which is a pita.

It's beautiful colours.

Can you post a picture of it tomorrow? smile

BriansBrain Fri 28-Jun-13 22:03:25

It's lovely, no good for my pasty skin though!

BellaVita Fri 28-Jun-13 22:03:14

Aww sounds like progress has been made.

<desperate for a dog, DH less so..> I feel so bloody broody grin

VivaLeBeaver Fri 28-Jun-13 21:59:21

He's a lot better thanks for asking. I think he is, dh isn't convinced. He's fine with everyone but still barks and growls at dh nearly constantly. But isn't biting him daily now which is good!

BellaVita Fri 28-Jun-13 21:56:46

Dress aside, how is that little doggy of yours? Settled in now?

VivaLeBeaver Fri 28-Jun-13 21:50:26

It'll be in store tomorrow to pick up, I'm excited!

VivaLeBeaver Fri 28-Jun-13 21:49:51

Oh I'll definitely need super strength hold in pants.

I like it but the colours would scream at my skin - you'd need to see it on.

GobblersKnob Fri 28-Jun-13 21:47:55

God it's gorgeous, wish I hadn't looked too grin

Fingers crossed that it suits you, it's a great dress.

BellaVita Fri 28-Jun-13 21:44:50

I like it too!

Although I am a petite size 10, I have a slight wobbly tum though and would probably feel the need to wear holdy in pants.

Hassled Fri 28-Jun-13 21:39:07

I really like it - think it's lovely. I have too much of a tummy for such a dress, but assuming you don't have such issues then enjoy it - it looks versatile; I think you'd get good wear out of it.

VivaLeBeaver Fri 28-Jun-13 21:37:01

Im petite height wise.....not so much width wise. <hopeful>

Well at least people don't seem to think its awful so if it looks nice on ill keep it. I have no fashion sense most of the time and I look at some stuff I've bought and wonder what on earth I was thinking!

InkleWinkle Fri 28-Jun-13 21:34:56

I think it would only look good on a little petite person.

(Therefore not me for example!)

duckyfuzz Fri 28-Jun-13 21:34:50

Temptress!

VivaLeBeaver Fri 28-Jun-13 21:30:37

Get it Ducky, it's a half price bargain! grin

duckyfuzz Fri 28-Jun-13 21:29:23

Wish I hadn't looked, I love it!

VivaLeBeaver Fri 28-Jun-13 21:27:22

Yes, I haven't even got an "occasion" in mind for it. But at least if I like it it's the sort of thing you'd keep for ages without it dating.

Thurlow Fri 28-Jun-13 21:24:00

That's a 'need to see it on' dress. I'm not entirely sure, but then with some good sandals on a hot day it could look great. My only thing would be whether you'd get £100's worth of wear out of something so summery.

VivaLeBeaver Fri 28-Jun-13 21:22:42

True, I'm having second thoughts about it now but at least I'm picking it up in store. I'll try it on while I'm there so I can sort out the refund straight away if I want to.
