I love it and it is flattering but Im stuck as to what to wear with it. I can put together a daytime look but I really want to go to the pub in it as well.

I cant walk in massive heels btw but I am interested in shoes boots, although Ive never tried any on!

I like contrast of textures with leather - so cashmere, chunky knit, silk or lurex all good

kittya Mon 06-Dec-10 14:29:07

what kind of colours to go with olive?

I have a black leather pencil skirt and wear it with a cashmere v-neck or silk blouse. I find mine a bit too long to wear with shoe boots so I've only worn it with heels so can't help on that front!

kittya Mon 06-Dec-10 15:49:19

what kind of heels? I want fullish ones as Im thinking of the weather up North!!

RolandButter Mon 06-Dec-10 15:50:53

a couple of cushions?

kittya Mon 06-Dec-10 17:50:41

not the look I was going for

FellatioNelson Mon 06-Dec-10 17:54:26

Tricky. Not high leather boots - all too much. Maybe suede. But I agree - woolly tights or lacy ones, cable knit, pringle pattern, etc, maybe shoe boots or natty ankle boots with a heel. And a lacy/silky blouse with pussy cat bow, or a cashmere sloppy sweater off one shoulder?

FellatioNelson Mon 06-Dec-10 17:54:57

Fitted tweedy hacking jacket? Or velvet?

tethersjinglebellend Mon 06-Dec-10 18:06:47

This would be nice with a gold pendant...

the lurex top is the same colour as the skirt practically so I think its too much.

Yes, I know I can go to town with the tight situation!! I have all kinds in all different colours.

Its a top for big knockers and shoes for skinny ankles I need!!

FellatioNelson Mon 06-Dec-10 19:23:13

Well if you've got skinny ankles then you can definitely rock the high heeled platformed ankle boot. I think fishnet tights and a lacey/flouncy pussy-cat bow blouse would be luvverly.

RolandButter Mon 06-Dec-10 19:57:05

with it id do a black loose knit off the shoulder sloppy sweater
PLAIN tights ( enouh tetural detail with the leather)

shoe boots ( are millions around - you can find them no problem) and a long gold pendant like this

RolandButter Mon 06-Dec-10 19:57:53

whats wrong with this? here

edgy enough to make you not loook --like a sofa-- like Stefanie Beacham

RolandButter Mon 06-Dec-10 20:02:06

and what about this for a mid height boot - nto as sexy as the uber high ones but ok

kittya Mon 06-Dec-10 20:12:06

I love those boots, Ive never worn short boots and a skirt before. They look like I could walk in them. I havent got a next near me, are their shoe sizes standard?

I dont think that black top will suit my big top half really but I do like it.

Im ordering the telephone pendant, I love it!!

RolandButter Mon 06-Dec-10 20:57:06

2/3 then
what about a cardigan ( long coaty) for skirt(
i have this one and its ace
and i have tits dont pin it like that obv
thast too long isnt it

kittya Tue 07-Dec-10 13:16:38

I like that but I do think it is too long. The thing with a lot of those drapy cardigans they hang funny over your boobs because of that silly drape effect.

Im just about to order the boots, Ive got the tights. Its just a top now!

kittya Tue 07-Dec-10 13:27:53

HELP!! The boots are sold out!! Now, what?

kittya Tue 07-Dec-10 17:41:41

any other shoe suggestions its for next week!

tethersjinglebellend Tue 07-Dec-10 18:21:34


Too low?


Too high?

kittya Tue 07-Dec-10 18:57:09

they are gorgeous but, I wouldnt beable to walk very far in them!! the grey wouldve looked really nice with the olive.

Im rubbish in heels.

tethersjinglebellend Tue 07-Dec-10 19:10:15

Am I looking at the right sold out boots which you liked? the black next ones with 7.5cm heel?

RolandButter Tue 07-Dec-10 19:11:40
