I have silly boobs which means I can only wear scoop (or v neck with buttons) tops. I own 3 styles in 4 different colours but they are all very dull (fine for work as a childminder but not really good for non work).
I'm going away in a couple of weeks and really could do with buying 2/3 new ones that are a bit snazzyish, but still conform to the style that suits me.
I already have ones that are similar to DP (thanks Herbietea), Joules (thanks Celia and accessorizequeen), I just want something a bit less plain I guess. Not evening dressy but not work like either.
Bethelbeth, yes I do mena silly boobs as in quite brilliant really, just hard to dress down! I'm quite slim, (size 10ish) but have 34E boobs, wish such a curvy shape dressing for the day can be tricky. V neck and overall oomph is not something I shy away from, but the sort of v neck that suits me is that slash v neck (if that makes sense?), which are a bit booby for day wear. Plain v necks just look weird on me?
I have scoop necks in grey, white, black, navy, pink and purple plain, the same colours again in stripe, I have v neck buttons in red, burnt orange, grey, mustard, royal blue. I also have all those again in short and cropped sleeve.
All the nice smart casual tops I have are short sleeve and I can't find anything long sleeved; for example I have a lovely bandage style short sleeved tshirt in white with little hooks at the neckline to make the v as deep as you like.
I think I'm not making any sense? The cold has got to my brain!!
