Oh dear.  The drop waist is a no.  As is the skirt length...and to think we once wished for longer skirts.

It manages to be both frumpy and reevalling, which is quite an achievement

 Laugh bounce  Yep.  High neck, long sleeves, hem down near her ankles, yet seemingly no lining or slip and open up the front to the top of her thighs.  I wonder at the workings of her brain.  And why on earth would a woman with a long waist anyway, who seems to want to disguise that fact by so often wearing clothing which has little design tricks like peplums and a waistline well above her natural waist, decide to wear a dress with a drop waist?   Crazy

From the waist up she looks great:



The pearl earrings are cute, she's got the Bletchley brooch on, her hair is a good length. But from the waist down, the dress is not nice.

Now we wish for a few more buttons and a slip . . .

I have always loved this dress, so much so that I bought the Zara replica, which is a lot better; it is not silk, I admit it, but the lower part, a classic mid-length skirt, looks like a million dollars!

Doing some STEM codebreaking thing with visiting school children.

And it's an unflattering and expensive dress, but she is wearing it for a second time rather than buying an equally expensive but ever so slightly different polka dot dress for the event

I donít like how high the slit is, but I think she looks incredibly long and tall in this dress.

Cute close up pics (you can't see the drop waist). She should lend her hair colourist to Leti







And to bang on about KP's social media game again? it's definitely getting better. It tells a story, uses good photos and always provides links to the cause. Like...



Quote
The Duchess of Cambridge with @BletchleyPark Veterans Elizabeth Diacon, Georgina Rose, Audrey Mather and Rena Stewart ó who all worked to feed crucial information to Allied forces in the critical months, weeks and days leading up to D-Day during #WW2.

Like, it names the people she's meeting and links it to D-Day and bigs up their achievement. There's even a hashtag!

My first thought was this is a great sitting dress (if that makes sense).

For those curious, there is a great mini-series about Bletchley Park called The Bletchley Circle.  Beautifully shot and acted miniseries about the amazing work women did during World War II, particularly with regards to intelligence gathering and analysis.

Waity should be thrilled to be amongst such esteemed women.

It really is - well framed, I like that it's not one of everyone smiling for the camera but talking, and the dress photographs better sitting down - and by utter co-incidence, the colour matches everyone and tones with the info boards on the walls.

I'd like more visits to events and places without a personal interest, but I won't quibble with this one - women have been too often written out of the roles they played during war and this is a good reminder.

I canít think of any instance where a drop waist looked great....on anyone. That being said, it works better on a tall and lean frame.
But I agree that her hair color is wonderful on her.

It's a no from me today - far too revealing, too sheer, too low a waist. She looks soooooo thin it's frightening. And she looks knackered. But yay for a recycle and yay for keeping up the connection with Bletchley.
