Velour Lace Yoke Skater Dress ONLINE ONLY
Great colour but..
Having spent two hours wandering around our local M&S (Castlepoint near Bournemouth) and found nothing pretty to buy, I came home and looked online.
I saw a really pretty dress in Midnight Blue, one of my favourite colours. It arrived quickly and I tried it on. The fabric felt a little rough for velour but I was more interested in the fit and style. It is true to size and a good length (I'm 5ft tall), below the knee. However, it is really old fashioned (I'm 64). I showed my partner later and told him he could be completely honest as I didn't love it. His verdict? Old fashioned.
So, M&S, sorry, but it's unanimous in our house.. too old fashioned for a woman in her 60s. In fact the whole store had the same feel. Time to lighten things up M&S with great fabrics in fashionable styles please.

Like the item, very comfortable when trying on, but after waiting for other items to collectively try - decided against it. Good product, but would have preferred it to be about another 3-4 inches longer, feel it is too short for older person, not suitable for me unfortunately,

Stunning midnight blue lace skater dress
Bought this along with the identical redcurrent dress in the half price sale (figured I could treat myself to two). I have to say I prefer this blue one as the colour is more flattering and quite stunning and classy looking. I had to buy a size 10 and I'm normally a 12 to 14. It does fit but the shoulders don't quite line up so a 12 would probably have been better. I am just under 5'4" tall and this dress came to just below my knee which I felt was a little bit on the short side but unfortunately this style doesn't come in a longer length. On the whole I'm very pleased with this dress, though a lining would have been nice.

I love it
Elegant, unusual colour, gives a really flattering contour without being tight. Moves beautifully when I'm dancing tango AND a size 10 (I am really a 12) so even better for the ego!
