Wouldn't suit mine - empire line. Boo.

Still pretty wishywashy though - not grey, but not exactly anything either.

Wouldn't suit me I like mint velvet though. Don,t really like that pattern. Some nice things in French connection but expensive.

thats ok my lover

grin at it being described as "a vibrant touch of colour"

JunoWatt Thu 02-Jun-11 11:35:28

tbh ANYTHING that cures my stripe addiction is good.
it does look nice with denim - the blue in it is brighter than you think. but its the neckline thats nice

Reader, I bought it , but it's going back.

I love the colours but somehow it just doesn't look quite right.

I am uncertain because it is see through over the tummy area. A cami underneath defeats the purpose. I don't think seeing a tum through material is nice in an oldie- 45+- anyone agree or not?

JunoWatt Thu 02-Jun-11 12:22:25

aha yes. i think depends on skin colour.

Don't buy the bandana print skirt then strawberry - gorgeous fit and shape, but you could read through it, it's so thin.
