I can't do jeans or trousers. I just can't. I'm small (size 8) but very poorly proportioned (thighs=danger zone). My teens and 20s were a sad travesty of fashion as I slavishly tried to squeeze the turnips into denim.
In my 30s, I worked it out - shortlish flippyish skirts/dresses, vintage wherever possible, thick tights, boots or ballet pumps. Hopefully the right balance between Interesting and Inappropriate.
But now - my wardrobe looks dangerously muttonish. But I don't want to turn into a librarian. (No offence to librarians. Some of my best friends...it's just that when you're small, if you go librarian, you can look like a Miss Marple toy).
I saw you link that top on another thread - it's lovely. Apparently the man made fabrics they use now use sports technology to make them more breathable. Basically the message I got from the store manager was that man made was there to stay due to cost of natural fibres..... It's the first viscose dress I've bought, hope I don't regret it!
