Not inspiring Muse dress
I ordered this dress as I liked the ideea of a cat print but I didn't like it at all.
The raspberry background is a lovely colour, very rich and quite dark not at all strong.
The print is too busy and the cats faces aren't cute at all they actually look quite scary!
The fit is not good at all for my frame. I am usually a size 8 - 10 and quite lean, tried the 8 on and the top part fitted nicely but the skirt part was very large.
And the gathered band wasn't at the waist line but under the breasts which overall gave me a very mummsy look.
I didn't find the neckline too low.
I wish not so many dresses which have bands gathered or not under the bust part were made. I tried this style before having the kids but a flat tummy, not great! Now after two pregnancies and a not-so -perfect belly again, not great! I think this cut is flattering for very few women. Maybe it is supposed to hide some not so perfect tummies. It doesn't!

This is a gorgeous dress for the summer. The colour looks particularly lovely with a tan too! It's very flattering if, like me, you have an hourglass figure. I thought I'd be put off with the print as I really dislike cats but once on it didn't bother me at all. Would highly recommend.

Looked forward to seeing this dress 'in the flesh', as it is the same shape as the summer blossom dress in periwinkle, which I really love. However I thought the pattern was a bit tacky and it did not appeal to me at all, which is a pity as the other one was so classy. Also the summer blossom dress is lined in a lovely soft fabric, while this one isn't :(
