Not sure. The halston looks more disco.
I think we need a poll. Put the other good ones in too...
mehhhhhhhhh. there must be something more interesting to poll.
This is the one I got, which is actually pretty sexy on. I had trouble making the fancy link shortener work in my browser - sorry!http://www.theoutnet.com/product/316035?cm_mmc=ProductSearch-_-us-_-Dresses-_-Boudicca&gclid=CKGA9fqk37gCFZCe4AodFGoAsQ
this one is way better
I do not like this at ALL. It looks like a drunk fashion school student made it. I like the Alice Temperly and Matthew Williamson better.
hrmph. maybe i gave the people more credit than they deserved.
Hmm. Now that I see it on a human body I might agree. It looked better on the human-shaped void in the first shot.
I envy anyone who can wear a shapeless neckline like this. I have a short neck and big boobs and require something V neck. I don't not like it, but I feel like this is a hard shape to pull off.
If this girl has hips and boobs and a small waist this dress is going to be just about the most unflattering this ever. If I were to wear this shape it would tack on about 40 pounds.
Agreed! This is the opposite of the wrap-style tulip shape she wanted. This dress would simultanously hide my small waist and make my thighs look massive.
UMmmmmm... nope. Not a dancing dress! More like a matron of honor dress for your dumpy friend who thinks she's dressing "riqsue" sorrrryyy.
The MW was far superior. I don't like the above at all, it's metallic but there's no fun disco vibe.
Yeah, I kind of preferred the MW.
This is not the shape she requested, but I love the back of this dress.
That VW is terrible and not disco at all.This is disco but sadly not in her sizeless disco and a bit over budget but still fun and in her size.although of everything in the original post I thought the ASOS dress was the best option. Or just have one made. it's a simple design she wants and I doubt gold fabric costs very much. Just a thought.
OP here! Thank you all for your suggestions. I hope ESB wasn't making fun of me by showing how crappy exactly what I described look like. Seriously, maybe worst Halston ever, but to be fair closest to what I described. This Vivienne Westwood is kind of bomb but I agree that something that hugs my thighs and not my waist is not as flattering as the other way around. I loved the Alice by Temperley but it's not in my size--I'm a 4/6. Kinda dug the Silver French Connection too, which I'm gonna try and see if they have in the NYC stores. If either was a little more swingy and dance-y it would be perfect. Getting it made is actually a brilliant option, it's just a simple drape design. Thank you all for opening my eyes on this one!
annnd now I feel like the biggest jerk ever for looking a gift horse in the mouth. I love you ESB and hope you weren't in fact making fun of me. I can definitely see how the halston would work with better styling and it's growing on me to the point where I think I might rent it as a last minute possibility. And it is definitely DISCO. chin chin, thank you all again for the suggestions!
dude, just buy the halston. it's FOR SALE for $73. a custom disco dress for under $200 = a nightmare you don't want
this one, this one! also just $70, also disco, you could give it a tulip hem in a snap if you so chose. the back is fun.
OP again--ahhhhh I looooove this. But FMB (fuck my boobs). I dream of halters and backless dresses. Good thing its boob week...what can I do with my boobs in a halter?
If you managed to figure out the boob-halter situation during boobs week ... I love this one.
