I would be gutted if my boyfriend bought me a dress. Even if the size was right, you have to try it on to know it fits and in older women's shops (sorry Phase Eight), the sizes tend to be one bigger than they really are i.e. a size 10 girl fits in a size 8 dress.
Jewellery would probably go down better...
awww thats really sweet of you to find a dress and buy her it. Anyway it depends on what sort of stuff your gf likes, if she likes to dress up or is fairly casual on a night out (Someone else said the exact same thing i know). I would wear something less casual for my birthday personally. Coast do really nice party dresses x
Looks frumpy and the tie belt thing is hideous. Sorry.
Me? No chance.
If your gf was like 40 years old and a primary school teacher, then it'd be perfect. - 18th? Not so much.
Ew no. I'd try topshop, you can't really go as wrong. Unless thats her style?
I couldn't really say if your gf would like it as everyone has different styles and tastes, but personally, unless your 95% sure she'll love it, don't buy it!
Perhaps you could say that you'll take her on a shopping spree for one, and give her a budget or something to spend. That way, she can choose it herself, and trust me, she'll really appreciate you coming along with her, especially as guys usually HATE shopping! (that is, of course if you don't spend the day complaining!)
Is your girlfriend in 1950s America?
Nononono, shes 18 and i doubt she would appreciate wearing something that looks like 1950's wallpaper.
Look on ASOS, or even better get a female friend of hers to help you.
For the sake of your relationship, DO NOT buy that dress! Plus, if that dress is a product of your choice, do not exercise your choice. Either don't buy her clothes, or go shopping with someone else.
depends really on her style wouldnt personally wear it.. maybe go with something a bit more safe?
Don't buy that dres sunless you know she likes that style. Most 18 year old girls would not wear that though. Maybe you could take her shopping and let her pick one? Or try something like motel rocks, newlook, dorothy perkins, miss selfridges, warehouse or topshop. Phase 8 I think is aimed mroe at middle ahed women.
I really would let her choose something herself.. I wouldn't trust anyone to buy clothes for me!
Also dress sizes can be a bit dodgy, and I don't want to be rude but that dress does look like it's for 30 year olds plus.. not an 18 year old!
Can't you buy her something else or let her choose and just pay for it?
Depends if your girlfriend likes those sort of dresses
