Item One - a 'going out' top with wear with midblue skinnies

Item Two - a going out top to wear with black skinnies

Must be cotton, silk or something and not polyester - must suit norks.

Item Three - black heeled shoe boots

Item Four - grey jumper dress, short enough to be mid thigh on a short-arse

Item/s Five and above - work top to wear with a black pencil skirt or black cigarette trousers

Thank you. smile

What shape are you and what is your budget Remus?

do you have any preferred brands?

How about the Warehouse top linked to on the going out thread? for item 2.

MissDD1971 Sat 05-Oct-13 18:29:20

sorry Remus that top was man made so count it out...

MissDD1971 Sat 05-Oct-13 18:33:58

am rather liking this one not sure what you'd wear with apart from item two.

This top in red - I have the blue spotty one and it looks great with skinny jeans, am wanting the red one too to go with my black skinnies

Sorry - not sure how to do a clickable link on an ipad

Grey jumper dress.

I have the navy from last year after seeing a thread about it on here and bought the grey this year. They are very warm and very flattering.

MissDD1971 Sat 05-Oct-13 18:37:07

silk shirts from Zara variety not sure which you'd prefer, more going out again

LittleMissWise Sat 05-Oct-13 18:37:26

blush I know its purple on the link, but choose grey on the options, I thought I had!

MissDD1971 Sat 05-Oct-13 18:38:52

LittleMissWise what's the sizing like on that jumper dress please? am 5 ft 4 and curvy 10-12 - I fit 8 or 10 in Whistles if that helps.

MissDD1971 Sat 05-Oct-13 18:39:35

ignore my link poxy Zara got it wrong but you can search re silk on their site.

unless you find silk to be PITA.

I have some similar from Baby Ceylon, her previous company, hang beautifully.

MissDD1971 Sat 05-Oct-13 18:45:46

oh Diamond - my BM dress was from BabyCeylon. it does hang beautifully.

MissDD1971 Sat 05-Oct-13 18:47:07

the first top there (on tops page) the fuchsia pink one is almost same as BM dress but with sleeves!

Diamondcassis Sat 05-Oct-13 18:53:50

Really pretty. Was v sad when Baby Ceylon shut down (tho did have amazing warehouse sale...), F & B are mostly different in style, maybe a bit more mainstream. But I still wear all mine, years down the line.

MissD I am a 10 in most shops (never bought anything in Whistles), have 34D boobs and a 10 fits me fine.

Here's the thread from last year incase someone else can give you some more idea

this is this years thread about it.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 05-Oct-13 19:40:17

Thanks everyone.

I like the Uniqlo dress but we don't have Uniqlo here, and tbh their stuff is always a disaster on me irl anyway.

Shoeboots all too expensive, sorry. Should have said that I have an M&S rather than R&B budget.

Jigsaw top is lovely but too high necked and too expensive, I'm afraid.

I'll have a look in Zara.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 05-Oct-13 19:41:11

Don't like 2nd R&B pair, even if they were cheap. Sorry.

MissDD1971 Sat 05-Oct-13 20:23:24

sorry Remus.

trying to think.... maybe asos has a nice top.

do evening tops have to be silk or can it be silk mix? trying to think if Whistles did a nice top and will look later which you could get with 25% Grazia offer.

MissDD1971 Sat 05-Oct-13 20:28:17

Remus - if you do silk check this link or type silk tops into asos. tons there!

Eastpoint Sat 05-Oct-13 20:28:39

I didn't like the ASOS dress, I ordered it this week but I'm bigger bottomed - 32E top & size 12 lower half - it looked a bit short waisted on me & I am very short bodied. I tried the 12. Good length however, I'm 5'6".

MissDD1971 Sat 05-Oct-13 20:32:33

thanks LittleMiss too! smile

ceeveebee Sat 05-Oct-13 20:34:48

Shoe boots - these are gorgeous but too high for me
