They are completely different to anything I would have chosen myself. They fit. They even look elegant on the model on the website . But i don't know if I can pull it off. Obviously I said thank you. Now what? What would I wear it with?

Why "obviously" thank him? If you don't like it or how you look in it just ask him for the receipt and exchange!

Saying thank you is kind when a person recieves a gift so I understand that. I can't open your link but I'll presume this is an expensive purchase. My story is different because I presume the items were cheaper but my oh once gave me a pajama set I hated. I thanked hI'm and put it in the back of the drawer. An expensive item I would want to return as I wouldn't want the money to go to waste.

Link doesn't work. DH used to buy me clothes without checking first. Lovely thought and I did thank him, but there is no point pretending to like it if you don't. If nothing else, he'll continue buying things that don't work.

You can thank someone for the thought but politely explain it's not quite right for you. No point and a waste of money keeping something you never wear, having to buy stuff to match, or wearing something you're not happy in for someone else.

sorry, didn't check the link. Can't seem to make it work, so have tried to attach a photo.

I've never worn anything like it because I've never found a skirt that sits at the right length on me, this one is long enough. And he bought me shoes to wear with it grin But I don't know what to teem it with on the top half. I politely declined his choice of top and suggested he return it!

Any white top? Strappy, t-shirt etc. I like it.

DisdressedDolphin Sat 25-Jun-16 20:08:23

So the top should be fitted rather than floaty (like the skirt is)? It's not quite white, more off-white.

White vest top or fitted white t shirt.

If they fit and look good, wear them! Life's too short not to be confident. Wear them out somewhere with him.

White top tucked in? I like it.

I love that skirt, it's beautiful! Agree with a fitted white vest or T-shirt.

DisdressedDolphin Tue 28-Jun-16 13:54:24

Ok, which is best?

I think the white (obviously with a nude cami underneath) and then you need to do that tucked in a bit but not fully tucked in thing that I can never master everyone seems to be doing.

Lovely skirt.

Mrs9C Tue 28-Jun-16 14:39:45

Yes, the white one, tucked in smile

Tucked in all the way, then raise your arms up over your head. Should stay tucked in but give just enough bag/gape to look good

DisdressedDolphin Tue 28-Jun-16 15:33:03

Right. I shall give it a shot! Now, keep the black ones or return? Does the first black one seem an acceptable 'out to lunch with the IL's' outfit or does it not go at all?

HappinessLivesHere Wed 29-Jun-16 21:55:29

I think the first one is s complete mis-match to be honest. Sorry!

Gaspard Wed 29-Jun-16 21:59:02

I think the black tops are lovely but a bit too long. You look great, by the way.

3boys3dogshelp Wed 29-Jun-16 22:01:23

I like the third pic. I don't like the first one at all sorry. You have a lovely DH!

MissWimpyDimple Wed 29-Jun-16 22:04:42

I like the neckline of the third top. Really nice.

mogloveseggs Wed 29-Jun-16 22:12:26

Third one. Looks really lovely.

BretonTop Wed 29-Jun-16 22:16:50

Lovely skirt! Agree don't like the first top (black t-shirt) but the others look good. Love the shape of the third one; could you get that in white? Envious of your figure BTW!

bombayflambe Wed 29-Jun-16 22:37:15

first black one too covering, white one too baggy over your middle (even tucked in I suspect) third one great shape but better in white.
