I think the dress looks way too big, almost as if it had no waist. And her hair looks a little messy.

This kind of dress - so 60s retro that it could almost be a vintage piece - with a high waist has the kind of cut which must fit like a glove to really work well, but unfortunately it does not.
It's indeed too big, in the shoulderline as well, which creates a somewhat odd impression. I'm not too fond of this shade of orange on a pale brunette either.

I like the dress, but I don't think that this particular cut suits her. It would look nice on a pregnant woman, IMO.

I'm in the minority but I really love the dress, colour and cut is very pretty, what I dislike very much is the no tights/shoe combo and for some time now I find Mary's hair really awful, fake colour and much too long, quite messy.

I like the dress too. It might be a little big in the shoulder area, but overall it's very pretty and the color is great on her.

Very lovely. I love all aspects of this look.

I agree, the dress is too big on her, especially through the hips. The color is nice on Mary. I also agree with many of you, her hair has look not so great for a while now. A little messy and not kept. And I can't seem to figure out what color it is, some days it looks like it has a hint of auburn, some days it looks much darker. I am assuming that lighting has a lot to do with it.

I'm not fond of this dress on Mary. It just doesn't seem to fit her well.

Maggie Alderson approves: The rules: try new things

I guess I admire Mary's bravery and spunk for wearing something like this BUT the actual outfit in question is not to my liking If that makes sense?

Makes perfect sense. I try new things and some work and some don't. But the courage to try is admirable.

She has the figure for it and looks grand in the silhouette. I love the pattern and scale. However, complete coverall in the print makes it seems a bit like camouflage. Better in front of the shrubbery? But good for her to do as she likes!

I like this outfit. I won't wear a black jacket to the orange dress, but it looks very good - maybe because this outfit fits CP Mary

The print on the dress reminds me of cow hide. The black jacket is not helping the look any. Sorry, but for me this is a miss.

I'm not a fan of the black jacket, either. It would have been less jarring if the shoes and bag were black. With the current choice of shoes, an ecru (I am guessing that is an off white tone in the dress) would have been less odd. And really - I am not a matchy - matchy girl, but that black takes away from an artsy print that wants to draw the eye.
