I never usually have a bad word to say about Chloe, but there's something slightly wrong with this dress. I quite like it, but I could honestly say it would look more at home on the rails of my local Fara, Debra or PDSA charity shop. In my years of charity expeditions I have seen countless polyester striped and pleated dresses, usually priced between 50p and £4.99. Quite a bit less than the £1,107 the Chloe number is going for. Admittedly it is a pretty dress, but there's something about the way it hangs on the Net-a-Porter model that makes me want to take the train to some small coastal town and see how many clothes I can buy for a tenner and then spend the change on chips.
