I don't think your link is correct, its showing maternity wear when I click.

this dress but with short sleeves in blue

Hard to picture but yes i think it might, sorry. It would depend on shoes etc though.

beige wedge peep toes, so similar to jacket

open to other suggestions as it's a difficult dress to find cover upfor

Hmm, i've been thinking but its a hard one, with beige shoes you might pull it off, give me a min and i'll think.

IO seem to style the AW dresses with the leather biker so perhaps you are just being very fashion forward. Loving their winter dresses.

lol maybe
I like the plum wrap.
Ordered the hipster plum wrap style one and it looked awful on me. I def need it to be knee length.

I have never actually kept anything i ordered from IO as i am not as amazonian as i think i am, it always swamps me, hoping the Maternity stuff is better.

Think I'd put it with a cropped/shrunken blazer style. Something like this,

Similar style


ggirl Fri 19-Aug-11 20:14:40

ooh good idea
do you think black with the bright blue ok
would i need to wear black shoes then?

magicmelons Fri 19-Aug-11 20:16:55

If you click through the h and m blazer the black one is styled with similar blue underneat.

magicmelons Fri 19-Aug-11 20:17:41

I actually like the light grey one.

ggirl Fri 19-Aug-11 20:19:25

hmm yes , but then black shoes?

magicmelons Fri 19-Aug-11 20:23:46

No i think you could carry on with beige after all you'll only have the coat on outside and the black shoes might not look right on their own, i think if you wear some accessories , beige shoes and jacket you'd look good.

you're a star
