This one here - but its Maran so £££. Anyone seen anything similar at all?

I love it apart from the length. Lots in Zara similar I have a lot of tops like that bought over the years always dig tem out in spring Gap also have them sometimes.

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 20-Apr-13 07:37:00

Ooops I meant Marant. The length would be good on me I just know it - I did wonder about Zara but find the quality of their embroidery is recently a bit crap and also a lot of polyester.

LetMeAtTheWine Sat 20-Apr-13 07:40:44

It is lovely. I want it too....

noddyholder Sat 20-Apr-13 07:45:32

Yes you do need to spend more for decent embroidery.

Haven't I seen embroidered white blouses in Wrap or Poetry catalogues?

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 20-Apr-13 07:51:38

I'll have a look at wrap but have found their sizing enormous and their customer service shockingly bad.

ShotgunNotDoingThePans Sat 20-Apr-13 08:00:51

Hmm not quite.

noddyholder Sat 20-Apr-13 08:01:13

The wrap jessamy one is lovely might get the lilac. Mrscb how huge are they?

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 20-Apr-13 08:06:45

I tried one last year in an 8 and would say it was more like a 12 - very long and broad in the shoulder.

And when I returned it they took about 3 weeks to refund and were very rude on the phone when I chased it.

ShirleySharpeyes Sat 20-Apr-13 08:07:21

How about Monsoon?

ShotgunNotDoingThePans Sat 20-Apr-13 08:07:27

Kinda but again...

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 20-Apr-13 08:07:45

Oh and I had to pay to return it with signed for delivery which was £££ and would be even more so now with the Royal Mail price increases so was very put off ordering from them. Which is a shame as some of their stuff looks nice.

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 20-Apr-13 08:09:23

Yes not quite right Shotgun but thanks for looking. Perhaps I'll just have to wait for the sales - I've seen the coral version on matches and only need it to be reduced by about 70% [because that will happen] wink

NotTreadingGrapes Sat 20-Apr-13 08:09:25

Oh I need it too! I mean I really do. Dd's communion in 4 weeks and that is just what am looking for.

Off to look at Zara which I had completely forgotten about!

DaffodilsAhoy Sat 20-Apr-13 08:16:20

Oh that is gorgeous envy

white company

ShotgunNotDoingThePans Sat 20-Apr-13 08:16:30

One last go.
Am often looking for similar myself but with a bit more shape. One day!

NotTreadingGrapes Sat 20-Apr-13 08:20:02


MrsCampbellBlack Sat 20-Apr-13 08:21:34

Oh I like that white co one but wonder how voluminous it would be - however have a 20% code some where so could be worth a try - especially if I could do the half tucked in thing with it.

The anthropolgoie one is nice too - am going to London in a few weeks so will go and take a look.

Thank you!

DaffodilsAhoy Sat 20-Apr-13 08:25:16

lovely but out of stock at mo

DaffodilsAhoy Sat 20-Apr-13 08:25:49

madammecholet Sat 20-Apr-13 09:54:17

noddyholder Sat 20-Apr-13 10:08:49


TheConstantLurker Sat 20-Apr-13 10:10:16

That first H&M one is cotton.

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 20-Apr-13 10:19:42
