Wow That's a Fantastic dress. They captured the fullness quite well in the Photo. I can see how could be confused with a parachute.

I will hurry to London, I see myself already swinging in this dress, lol ! It would be ideal for my shoppings !

Makes me wonder, is there anyone who will really wear that?
But I like the color.

I could never wear that dress; it would clash with my flip flops. =)

Haute couture always fascinated me, because I wonder, "Who in the heck would actually wear those clothes other than on a fashion runway?"
