I'm having a drinks party for my 30th (eek!) and need an understated but fabulous outfit. I'm a curvy hourglass/pear shape. I want something flattering but stylish. Preferably a "going out top" that I can wear with trousers or smart jeans and heels. But would also consider a not-too-dressy dress or one of those fabulous high-waisted A-line skirts.
The rules are that the top/top of dress must: - have sleeves - have a neckline that isn't too high or too low (because BOOBS) - be a bright or strong colour. I'd love something blue (strong royal blue) but also suit red, turquoise, jewel colours. NOT black or dark grey - not be too Christmassy (hard atm I know)
I did go shopping but it was a bit of a disaster. Looked in House of Fraser, Monsoon and a couple of other high street places, but no luck. I'd like to look online now. Will probably do my usual trick of ordering loads in the hope that something will work!
Right this is super low because of the wrap...but a pin would make this much better - also not sure if it is a strong enough colour for you. I really like the way it is styled. I would wear it with jeans rather than trousers and some awesome kind of necklace.
