Item of the Week 20/08/09

Whizzing though Debenhams yesterday evening searching for something ASAP and this stopped me dead in my tracks. I mean really- I ground to a sudden halt and just stood there saying OMG to myself and looking like I’d just seen Elvis.

  1. Oh my goodness! That’s incredible.

    • I actually went and tried this on today! It was gorgeous, but alas I had nowhere to wear it, so couldn’t justify buying it. Sniff!

      Had no idea RJR went up to a 22 though, so I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out in the future! xx

        Thanks for the heads up – I’ll do a review when it arrives

      • Deena says:

      • jojo says:

        Well the dress finally arrived and it is fantastic!
        I just can’t wait for the weather to get a bit cooler so I can wear it .
        I’m 5’3″ size 20/22 with a bit of an issue with my stomach area and this dress makes me feel like a supermodel and it looks bloody good too.

        I am intending to write to Mr Rocha to thank him for his fabulousness and beg him to make this in other colours.

        You should send Mr Rocha a pic as well to illustrate how fabtastic it is. Let me know if you get a proper response and not just some automatic email.

    I LOVE this dress. If only they had it in the US!

    The type of architectural detail in this is amazing!! It’s really unfortunate that we have such a hard time finding really interesting fashionable clothing in larger sizes.

    LOVE the origami pleats! ugh, i need to move to the UK. you guys gets all the good stuff!

  12. Love it!

    I had kinda forgotten about Debenham’s since they stopped the Gorgeous range, but during my last trip I discovered Rocha and was really surprised to see they go up to a 22.

    I got the plaid dress and it’s awesome!

    Also picked up a fab dress from New Look at the weekend black pleated bodice shift dress for £18 – looks good on

  14. Pole says:

    I tried it but alas – it didn’t fit me. One size was too big, another too small. It’s a great dress though – very well cut, good quality and a flattering design.

  15. carly says:

    Deena, did you see this dress also?

    http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_10001_10001_18657_1133867_-1

    Gorgeous! Not great for the hefty of arm like me soI ended up buying the grey origami dress and wore it with some 6 inch beauties🙂

    Just bought this dress – in a size 18. Saw it when I was coming down the escalator and knew I had to have it! Thought I’d need a bigger one but it fits like a dream. I got admiration from the shop assistants when I went out to the mirror for the ‘monroe’ curves (ie big arse) – surely a good sign! Can’t wait to wear it…
