Keep or Return?

I really am not sure about this dress.  I love the idea and I love it on the asos model but I just don't think it works on me.  It's too much of a cross between a school girl and a french maid on me and there is something off about it.  Maybe its the collar? Maybe it's the neck tie? Maybe it's because it's a good size too big on top but would be too small round the waist if I downsized? Maybe it's the fact that I can already tell it will crease like a bugger and will sit around in the pile of dresses needing to be ironed that I can never find the time for?!  I think I would love it more if the top section was all white with the black detailing seeings as I will always want to wear it with a black cardigan.  What do you guys think?  I can't link you to the dress on asos as for some reason it's been removed since I ordered it last week :(


Dress: asos

One thing I do love is the way the black band round the waist works wonders and makes my waist look tiny! If only a black belt had the same effect hey?!

  1. I'm not all that keen on it but it might look better with a coloured cardi? The neck tie is cute and the shape is okay but you look so much nicer in colourful dresses! c: x

  3. I'd say return for all those reasons you said. It would probably look alright if it was a different colour :S

  7. If in doubt then take it back. You'd always chose to wear to something else each morning.

    I think you look much better in other things.

  8. It's nice, but I agree- it'd be nicer if the top was all white and the colourblocking was only on the skirt!

  9. Unlike every one else i love this dress its a bit weired but i like that and i'm a sucker for black and white but i think it would look better with something other than a black cardigan. I think yu should return because you dont seem too keen, i just wish it was still online - i would be so tempted to buy it!! xxx

  12. I don't like the ribbon. Apart from that it's a nice dress, but I think if you're having doubts then it's worth getting the money back for one you fully love! :) xxxx

  16. It does look a bit costumey. :( It seems like a nice idea for a dress which doesn't work that well as an actual dress -- pity!

  18. I really love the idea of this dress, I really want a monochrome one too but I'm not sure it's 100% right.

  19. Return I'm afraid! It might be nicer if the top half was blocked diagonally, the same way as the skirt is.
