It's ok.

Bit high necked for me.

Nice colour.

What is the occasion?

Looks very crumpled on the picture, not really keen on it sorry.

HollyBollyBooBoo Wed 08-Jun-11 22:12:22

Gorgeous! Absolutely love it, would look lovely with dark jeans. Now I want it!

Yes if you have small boobs but not if you are bigger than a c cup.
It's the gathers up to the neck - will look good if you have good shoulders/small boobs/long neck but will make big ones look bigger.

I'd wear it with long navy crepey trousers (except I wouldn't as I am a 32G and it would look crap on me)

FrancesFarmer Wed 08-Jun-11 22:14:31

It' a pity it's so crumpled because otherwise, it's v. pretty.

I have the patterned version and love it wear it to work or with jeans. Is fab.

ParanoidEyes Wed 08-Jun-11 22:17:00

I love it. Nice to see a top that doesn't have tits flopping out of it.

applecrumbleandcream Wed 08-Jun-11 22:17:39

Yes I prefer the floral version, that is really pretty and looks much nicer imo.

FrancesFarmer Wed 08-Jun-11 22:18:16

Wow, that one looks great, Whoneedssleep.

Perhaps the first blouse looks as good but is let down by poor photography.

Ooh! Bought this in cream last year, didn't know they'd made new colours. I love it, it feels great on and I like the high neck. N

Well I have it so I like it.

Colour is gorgeous, high neck works on me (tall, long neck, not particularly well-endowed in the chest department), fabric doesn't look crumpled in RL. And it's versatile: so far I've worn it under a suit for work and with wide leg indigo flared jeans.

Now, do you like it, OP?

Hassled Wed 08-Jun-11 22:21:45

I like it - and I don't understand why I like it, because in theory the whole high-neck flower thing should be hideous. But it's not hideous at all - and the colour is lovely. Prefer the fuschia to the floral version.

frillyflower Wed 08-Jun-11 22:42:21

I really like it. I love the colour and it's very versatile I think.

I thought I would wear it with a black pencil skirt and black kitten heels.

Only thing is that as sleeves bit is sheer your bra straps sow. Does that matter?

frillyflower Wed 08-Jun-11 22:42:58

Or 'bra straps show' even!

FrancesFarmer Wed 08-Jun-11 22:46:37

Does that matter? Yes, they absolutely must not show!

frillyflower Wed 08-Jun-11 22:47:44

Then I must wear without bra!

partyhats Wed 08-Jun-11 23:18:54

I like it. I think you have to be a certain shape to carry it off though i.e long neck, slim with good shoulders (not slopey like mine, I've always wanted a shoulder transplant if there was such a thing)

5DollarShake Thu 09-Jun-11 02:27:24

Ooh it's gorgeous - love the colour in the OP.

whoneedssleepanyway Thu 09-Jun-11 09:45:14

or wear strapless bra or one with nude coloured strap...

bigbadbarry Thu 09-Jun-11 12:36:53

With my cream one I can get away with a nude bra underneath - the shouldery bit are sheer but not that sheer, so it is ok.

madammecholet Thu 09-Jun-11 16:15:12

My mum has that in black and also in grey, really suits her. Too fussy for me tho...

ohnelly Thu 09-Jun-11 21:00:16

Love it

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 09-Jun-11 21:05:43

I think its lovely and am not generally a fan of phase 8. I'd wear it with white skinnies.
