Right, I have a wedding to go to in October, evening reception, in Scotland (for weather considerations ). I have a really nice pair of black wide legged trousers hanging unworn in my wardrobe and need a top half to go with it. Help me find something.
I am 5"1, Pale, Short bobbed dark brown almost black hair, busty(G Cup), probably hourglass shaped, I'm slimmest under my bust. I've just had a baby so still quite a little bit self concious about my tummy area.
Criteria Size 16/18/20 I vary from shop to shop, bloody nightmare Colourful ( I have a wardrobe full of black) I'm BFing, top doesn't have to be friendly, but not too revealing as I'm likely to fall out of it. At least top half of arms covered I think I would prefer tunic style, Must be under £60
I am a bag and shoe-a-holic so have pretty much every colour combination covered so don't need to worry about that.
Are you near a House of Frasers? Mint Velvet are stocked there - and you could try on in RL.
Unless you could get an exact match of red - I'd go for black pashmina. Try a tie rack or M&S - they have a full range of the spectrum pashmina type things. But tbh - I don't think you'd need it - the sleeves are flattering.
