I'd get one from Joules and then a little cheapo cropped cotton cardie from M&S to wear over it.

There are lots on there if you look through the website.

thanks miniwedge..some of these are good but I wass thinking of something short, sassy, funky, 'out there', possibly abstract as opposed to floral design,

miniwedge Sun 12-Jun-11 19:51:39

better? loads on asos!

this too but it may be a bit floral
jersey wrap

miniwedge - it's perhaps a little formal..more for office than hanging around trendy bars...will check on asos tho, thanks

Clure -Love the Mia dress...will definitely hv a think about that. Thanx.

Ive just bought this and it is fabulous, fabric is gorgeous, belt gives it great shape, so so pleased. Looks brill with some killer heels but also lovely with flat sandals. Think I will be able to wear with tights and cardi in colder weather too which is a bonus.
