Ok I am newbe so please be kind!

I have a reunion to go to in a couple of months and I really really really want to look as fab as possible (had a terrible time whilst I was there and need emotionally to look fab)

Ok so I have the trousers sorted (palletso sp?) and killer heals.

but what I need is something to cover my arms (I hate them)!

I have a small waist and I would like to show it off (I am NOT normally shallow honest, but just for this one day I think I can be)

I would like a sort of semi structured look on the top, I have 100´s of suit jackets so I would like something different, I was thinking about a fitted cardigan or jacket? But I can´t find anything I like I am about a size 14 on top!

Can anyone help??

Hi have you looked in Monsoon? I was looking for a smart cardigan to go over a dress recently and they had quite a few nice ones in there. I tried this one on:,mon_1.6/3332733451

Looked quite strange on the hanger but really flattering on - wrong colour for the dress sadly!!

Oh that could work in terms of shape (I THINK)

But I normally live in Black!

It is quite a bright colour - but very pretty and might help with the confidence maybe?? I think there may also have been a dark pink cardigan with the same peplum(?) waist but different front fastening.

I have never even looked in a Mango shop!

How is there sizing?

Definatly think I will need wine to get there, not looking forward to it unless I can look fab

No help on the jacket front sorry but I would definitely recommend having a blow dry an getting your nails done for a general confidence boost. Good luck hope it goes brilliantly.
