1) No. Your legs look nice, though.
2) There's no shame in posting in the progress thread. No need to use a flimsy excuse to create another one.
Didn't know where to put this but I thought here would be best, I have my school formal coming up + I need a dress for a few other events this year and was wondering what you darlings thought of this dress from For Love and Lemons
I can't unsee this and I can't stop giggling2) If you add a decorative porcelain sea horse somewhere, it is essentially my grandma's bathroom decor/shower curtain (even has some pearl accenting as seahorse bubbles!)
I like it in theory, might be great for dancing but the fit and color are hard to pull off imo and the baggy shape is honestly a no... Would love to wear something like that to a beach, not a formal - it seems a bit flimsy, too
A few things come to mind with this dress:
1) Sort of reminds me of a leggier sea foam version of the dress that Sissy Spacek was wearing in Carrie when the pig blood was poured over her at the prom.
2) If you add a decorative porcelain sea horse somewhere, it is essentially my grandma's bathroom decor/shower curtain (even has some pearl accenting as seahorse bubbles!)
3) I'm not personally a fan of thin 'satiny' material (and any unlined garment...unlined = cheap & lazy garment standards...but that's just picky me...in actual HOT climates then no lining is ok, but then surely go for silk and not polyester...just saying)
4) Even if anyone can pull it off it's a SG....however, at best it looks like pajamas...at worst it might look like wrinkled shiny baggy pajamas in photos. On that note, it will probably be hard to find appropriate undergarments...(probably just some sticker bra would work best if you actually went forward with this purchase..).
In closing these are just my thoughts. Not meant to be insulting of anyone's fashion sense. However, my rule of thumb is if it just looks so-so on a model, then IRL it is going to look just bad.
It's a no for me... the fit, the material, and the construction. It seems more beachwear than formal...
Pastels and ruffles are so far out of my comfort zone but I found this dress that has a similar vibe and seems more appropriate
I can't unsee this and I can't stop giggling
Can't thank you, ladies, enough for your honest opinions, and you were correct, I looked around and realized while I think the designer had some good concepts it's probably a nicer dress to look at on a coathanger than a person. I'll start looking for new dresses again and probably will just go for a high-quality slip dress
All my thanks once again for your advice x
thThe shoe on the left is already mine. Trying to decide whether or not to keep the one on the right. Do I really need two pairs of black flats?
*please ignore the cankles (stood on concrete in heels all day - but also I do have fat ankles, just not that fat) and the dirt on my pants (assaulted by my dog whilst trying to get a pic)
