I knew I had to post here. You are both right. My hips are very far from skinny and that clingy shape won't work. Baubles - the discombobulated pocket - I know exactly what you mean but couldn't put it into words. ChinUp yes. Just because I like that lime green doesn't mean it likes me. Think I'd look a bit post-viral in it!
Wallis do have some nice things in but not sure if that is one of them. That pocket thing just looks weird floating round there on it's own and it just looks a bit discombobulated, like the shape doesn't match the colours. Gah, I know what I mean. I think it would look better if it were a-line/trapeze shaped rather than the fitted shape that it is.
