I quite like this for my SIL with some skinny pleathers for Christmas.
She can bung it on with a suit afterward if she fancies etc

Is it small bit of com in mouth or useful?

It would be more versatile without the black trim thing.

I can't decide. My fashion brain has shut down

Not dreadful but it wouldn't get my Xmas knickers in a twist either.

If you're sure it's her style though.....?

I like the pleated/folded neckline. Does she definitely suit cream? It isn't as neutral as people think. It can be very draining on the wrong skin tone.

I like it. I think its quirky. It would look great on the right shape..... but its very hard to buy for someone else. I second the notion, do you really know her style and what she likes?

I like the neck line
I think it will be good in different ways..versatile I mean
She wears tons of cream but that is a very good point
It looks more yellow in the link than in real life and is edged in pleather but looks fairly expensive from a glance

A small bit of what?

I think it could look cheap in the flesh. It's polyester, which can be fine but can be awful - the seams down the front and back will have to be finished very well for it not to look cheap I think.

Nice shape and neckline though.

vom...sorry auto corrected

Won't work if she's generous of nork.

RonaldMcDonald Tue 02-Dec-14 19:39:03

not norky at all
she is into big blouses...this isn't really my thing
maybe a voucher is a better shout

I think it's lovely and if my norgs weren't massive I'd definitely be pleased to get this as a present

I'm still struggling to get past 'com in mouth' - sorry grin

I don't know about your sister in law but I think it would look shite on me:
That trim makes the neckline quite high.
I don't suit cream.
I'm short and it would probably end right at the fattest point of my thighs.

But apart from that it's lovely! Don't know if that helps?

Can't believe I missed 'com in mouth'! grin

100% polyester- me thinks no!

Gem124 Tue 02-Dec-14 20:22:35

I think it's classy and one of those tops you'd get a lot of wear out of xx

I would like it if it were silk, but polyester is a big no for me.

I have a number of blouses from warehouse which I love & I really like this. I would get it (as long as the cream fabric doesn't look cheap irl)

Like it.

Would be nice if silk
