Dress and tunic

usual-shop-jan-09-032The dress (20p) is 1980s Etam, but has a ‘40s feel to it now I have taken out the shoulderpads. The Marks & Sparks tunic (20p) is a bit tacky; I was drawn to the retro print, but it’s all a bit shiny and looks mumsy when worn over trousers but tarty over leggings or worse, tights. Is this an illustration of M&S’s shortcomings on a wider scale, producing clothes which superficially look fashionable but which just aren’t quite right?
