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

I will try the Oasis silk ones on. The prints are pretty and they are well-priced for silk.

Other Stories one is probably a bit too severely cut for my norkage, although I do rather like that 'asylum chic' sort of look. smile

Have you looked at the & other stories tops page?. I know I know I know - you don't like online. But some lovely things....

this looks nice. Looks grey (and very wearable) on my computer.

this is very similar to the blouse I mentioned the style.

They also have this and another one - not sure if it'd do for the norks but reviewer says it comes up large:-

Oh Remus - if I see it again - last year Oasis did this gorgeous blouse - it was green with birds and for once (thank the gods) the bloody thing DID UP over the norks!

It was manmade but you could undo it and it still looked fine and no norkage showed. I was shock and pleasantly surprised. you could wear it evenings and daytime and with skinnies etc. almost perfect blouse... they may do similar style again.

Remus - no help for you but Bravissimo do bigger busted blouses (horrid though, don't like Pepperberry) and M&S do some too but more work type.

I wish high street would wake up to the fact that we have norks!

I'd love to have my D cup of yesteryear (but that probably/could've been wrong as I was 32 band for years and I'm actually 28 maybe even 26) and my ability to get away with strappy cami tops - those days are long gone now as I found to my cost in Zara t'other week

that is nice actually, it's viscose though so does that count for you?

have FCUK prices come down recently? they used to be stupidly expensive for what they were, imo

Saw this today and it's really lovely. Would be nice with pencil skirt and blazer.

It's such a pain. If they fit norks, they are huge across the back, shoulders, arms. And they make me look bigger than I am too.

Remus I feel your pain re button up blouses. would love to make them work but norks get in way!

Thanks Faux. I like the dark floral Oasis one out of those, but don't really suit button up blouses, due to norkage.

FauxFox - you've done well!

sometimes I go into shops and see lots of tops in un manmade fabrics and sometimes not...

I saw a trend online - lots of butterflies and florals and dark florals. when I looked too.

Yy, fags, Lynx and BOY HORMONES grin

I had giant jumpers knicked from then boyfriend, which always smelled of a mixture of fags and Lynx.

Yes - it's nicer in black. There are a couple of black ones actually. Will investigate tomorrow.

tethersend Sat 05-Oct-13 22:17:12

That was in reference to the grey dress, BTW- I like that black one.

tethersend Sat 05-Oct-13 22:15:39

I remember going out in one of my dad's not too dissimilar jumpers, tights and DMs grin


LOVE that - fear I may be too norky to get away with it though. It reminds me of being a skinny 17 year old in DMs. smile

Tops are a real fucker.

I don't do jeans, so always stick to blouses.

tethersend Sat 05-Oct-13 22:05:14

grey dress

I like that, but too similar to ones I've already got tbh. I HATE shopping for tops, which is why I have a wardrobe full of skirts and jeans and nothing to wear with them. smile

going out top or one to wear with skinnies, I don't really get tops grin
