Yay or Nay Wednesday

RetrodressIt seems ruching can go a bit too far – the bodice from a fortnight ago was fine, but last week’s Yay or Nay garned comments such as ‘whipped cream’ and ‘ice-cream cone’ and possibly quite rightly!

Anyway, on with the show. How do you feel about this retro styled dress? Yes, yes, you’ll pick up that the fluffy chiffon thing perched on her left shoulder looks like it shouldn’t be there but what about the rest of it? Yay or nay and why?

[It’s Yay or Nay across the Shiny blogs today, so don’t forget to vote at Trashionista, Shiny Shiny, Catwalk Queen, The Bag Lady and Shoewawa too!]

  • Did they not learn from Charlize Theron at the Oscars? Big fluffy bow things on the shoulder are a bad idea! The frills aren’t my cup of tea either, though I have a friend who wore a dress similar to this (sans shoulder frill) and looked stunning.

    It’s a Nay, but not a big fat nay, just a little tiny whispered one.

  • Corrine

    We’ve established we’re over the caveman-one-shoulder look, but the shoulder bit is two inches short of 80’s puffy sleeve. And the rest of the dress looks like a cat attacked it.

  • Jenni

    Nay, just too frilly and fussy for me. I’m not even going to mention the shoulder growth.

  • Caroline

    I don’t mind it – obviously my wedding planning has sent me deranged. It’s a yay.

    But a definite nay to the shoulder business.

  • Nay…I hate frills, it makes you look like a female version of the Mitchelin man!

  • Nay! Don’t like it at all… It’s so 80’s…
