Please could you advise me where to go shopping based on this photo
I've just gone through all my tops and here is a photo of the 54(!) that are left There is a purple top with abstract patterns on it. Next to that on one side is a forest green top. On the other side is an orange top. The green and orange colours are ones I am most complemented on.
My skin tone isn't wonderful (a bit yellow with bags under the eyes) but the right green, blue or bright orange seems to transform me.
I would also very much like more patterned vest tops&t shirts as I'm not great with jewellery so I like it when the clothes do the work.
I am fairly slim for 46 and wear jeans with everything. I look good in jeans as have long slim thighs.
Oh and I work from home -I have a few nice dresses for meetings.
Are they all tops? Are you looking for layers under or over your tops?
I find Benetton really good for patterned shirts that you could wear inside your tops (collar showing type of look) but particularly good with a long v neck style knit. I think they look better in real life than on the website. Otherwise I tend to wear a vest top that shows under the top layer (usually a long line vest as I find my wobbly tummy needs the distraction). You could try using a coloured vest top to add a more interesting layer.
Sorry lingle if that came across as facetious - I just found it funny that you were looking to buy more with so many - I wouldn't be able to find anything. I am the culling queen though (and no, haven't joined the MK massive)!
