I can't find a cheaper version of the jumper online, but I'm certain they exist. Weather lady carol had a sequin lips t shirt on ITT last night which I know isn't Markus Lupfer. I would guess maybe New Look, Dorothy Perkins or TK Maxx would be good bets.
Jonesy might give it a whirl, not sure if it's a bit too young for me ( I am nearly 45) , Size 10 but with hips! I had a look couldn't suss out the lengths. I am thinking fitted plain black jersey top ( just ordered from Pure Clothing this week ) or a fine knit black jumper.
Right all reporting back- skirt has arrived and it looked better on TV and on Zoe Ball! It's quite short on me- if I kept it then I definitely need the longer length as it's on the higher side of mid thigh.
It looked a bit cheap closer up- I didn't hate it but I saw a young girl wearing out on Sat night and it put me off a bit! So it's going back and I'm flashing the cash and opting for a different one from Reiss instead. More age appropriate and expensive!!
Yes mighty the stiching was what did it for me! It was so visible and crooked that it made it look really cheap. So disappointed as it was a bargain!
I like either Reiss Ione or Mauritz skirts. I thought with a plain black silk top and a statement necklace and black tights and heels then that would look good. Again just need to order them now and see what they're like. Much more expensive than the topshop one but I'm prepared to throw money at this now as going to make it cover lots of occasions- Christmas work party, friends 40th bday party etc.
There's a cotton animal one in oasis which I might get but it's more casual. I wouldn't spend 120 on a skirt. I tend to do high end high street but only in the sales unless it's something spectacular. Having said that I'm wearing Lk Bennett stuff bought 4 years ago in sales and it's still in great nick so worth the spend. Keep you posted.
