Keep or return?

Hey guys! Hello to my new followers, how are you all? Can't believe I have hit 300 followers already.  I'm guessing Where Are My Knees? is to thank!  Talking of WAMK head over there at 6pm today for some exciting news!  If you haven't already make sure you enter my little giveaway, its open til next Sunday and you can win an incredibly cute necklace handmade by me using vintage charms :)

I bought this dress a couple of weeks ago after seeing it in a tweet by the lovely Emma.  Emma is a dress fanatic like me so often twitpics me her latest purchase so we can compare wardrobes!  Although I love the colour (and know that Amy hates it from another twitter convo) I just don't think it does anything for me.  Combine that with it being see thru and my aversion to flesh coloured underwear I stuck a black vest under it and I think it just looks messy :(  I think the pleating does me no favours and its too short... not sure why I still love it but I do!



Dress: Topshop

What do you guys think? Is this a keep or a return?  You won't offend me with constructive comments so don't worry about telling me that it doesn't suit me or flatter me etc, etc.  Much kinder to be truthful than let me walk around in a hideous outfit hey?!

  3. I think the colour is gorgeous and it really suits you, my only gripe is that it is a tad too short! But if you're comfortable with that then it shouldn't be a problem :)! I saw your blog from Models Own and I read back every single post! Love your blog!

  4. I think it looks a little short and it's length isn't flattering on you, though I can't tell without a full length photo. I do think you suit something with a cleaner silhouette, I think this dress hides your lovely figure!

  5. I like the colour a lot and think you can def pull it off - but I think the length and the volume of the pleats isn't hugely flattering. But if you love it, you love it!

  6. I really like the colour! I think it should be a bit longer - too many pleats in too little material, imo. I do love the detailing on the chest though - it is a tricky one!

  7. i am also enjoying the bright summery colour! i think the see-through fabric spoils it slightly though with the black underneath, booo x

  8. I LOVE the colour and it really is lovely, but as everyone else said, it does look a bit short and also it being see through spoils it a bit. xxx

  9. I love the colour but it is rather short. The fact it is see-through puts me off, put me off in the shop too. I think the black vest spoils a little like you said.

  18. I think the colour is fab & I don't mind the see-throughy bit but the problem for me is the bottom half. It's a wee bit too short which makes it look a bit square.

    I vote return but get another dress in the same colour :D

  19. i think it could be a lot nicer if it was longer and opaque..i think i'd vote return, as i think you could get something nicer for the money..

  20. This is wierd, I want to dislike it for the see-through thing and because of the colour, but I actually really like it and think it suits you really well! Keep! x
