Dream Dress: Molly Polka-Dot Bow Dress

I am infatuated by this Molly dress, by Lunacy Boutique. I fully acknowledge that it might look like an eight-year-old's party frock, but for me that just makes it all the more alluring.

And it's adjustable too: the baby-pink halterneck straps can be detached to make it a strapless style, and the ruched skirt hem can be undone so it falls into a more traditional prom design. So, it works in several ways, meaning I have even more of an excuse to splash out the £69 it costs. Or at least that's what I'll be telling myself.

What do you think? Too cupcake-cute, or does the fifties-shape and grandma's curtains-inspired floral print somehow combine to form something far more wonderful than the sum of its parts?

  1. It is *very* cutesy but with your red hair and tongue piercing you can get away with it :-)

  2. I think you could *only* get away with it with red hair and a piercing, or some fierce tattoos.

  3. Thanks ladies! It does remind me a bit too much of a doll's dress, but I still like it...

  4. I'm the world's biggest girly girl but my dear woman, it looks like a Laura Ashley curtain and Cath Kidston tea-cosy had a baby and that baby vomited and out popped a dress.

  6. Now you've pointed out the Cath Kidston similarity, I'm not so struck. But I love the polka-dot bow.

  7. Okay, so maybe I'm odd, but I think this dress is absolutely gorgeous! I love the fifties feel, and just wearing this dress is going to make you feel summery, even if the weather is foul. Now, where is that wicker picnic basket...

  8. I adore this dress, the colours are fab and the combination of flowers and polka dots just works.

  9. Thanks for all the comments, ladies! So, is anyone going to splash out on it so we can see what it looks like in real life?
