This shirt

Ok, in my ongoing quest for a funky summer shirt/blouse type affair, I would like your opinions on this one:

In case anyone read my last thread about the Tabitha Webb rainbow shirt, I did order that one, but wondering if I like this one better, so thinking of ordering it as well, and sending one back. This is the TW one:

What say you MNetters as both very different?

Loving the Amber shirt but I see it's sold out?!
Do not like the rainbow shirt at all!

Hoppinggreen Thu 23-Mar-17 16:18:10

Not keen on either to be honest but that's just a personal thing as they aren't like anything I would wear.

healthyheart I have managed to source a production sample of the Amber shirt at a bit of a discount as it does appear to be sold out.

I've ordered the rainbow one too, but may well send it back. I just want to see it in the flesh and try it on.

Don't like the Amber one. Too frilly and flouncy for my taste and doesn't look like it costs anywhere near £165.

Love the rainbow one but as its such a statement item I don't think it's very versatile and agree with posters on your other thread that the placement of the rainbows at the shoulders is poorly done esp for the price.

Blimey I think the green one is awful. I don't particularly like the rain bow one, but that green thing is just terrible. Sorry op we clearly have very very different tastes.

DavetheCat2001 Thu 23-Mar-17 16:46:08

haha! Maybe it's me!

EllaHen Thu 23-Mar-17 16:48:56

I think they are both lovely. I wouldn't pay anywhere near those prices though. £30 max.

Blimey Dave you're finding some right corkers grin

But ignore me, if you like it then that's all that matters smile

DavetheCat2001 Thu 23-Mar-17 16:56:18

I do have quirky taste I have to say, but it's good to hear other opinions.

vitaminC Thu 23-Mar-17 16:57:03

I love the green one. Slightly frilly for my style but I like everything else about it.
Not keen on the rainbow one,I'm afraid.

Glad to see you found the Rixo website! I love their blouses, and love the green one!

Bluntness100 Thu 23-Mar-17 17:04:33

To be fair though, ,it's prob the best one they sell.,,they have indeed got some right corkers on there,,,😱

DavetheCat2001 Thu 23-Mar-17 17:06:48

Thanks for sending me that way vuvezela!

I do like the green shirt, but the rainbow one looks like it's from the kids department from Primark. I can see what you are aiming for though and there is a distinct lack of nice summer shirt/blouses at the moment.

I love the rainbow one, sadly way over budget for me or I'd snap one up sad
Not keen on the green one personally but each to their own!

MumBod Thu 23-Mar-17 17:19:28

I bloody love that rainbow shirt 😍

toffeeboffin Thu 23-Mar-17 17:22:30

I like the rainbow one.

Not keen on the green one, and I know for a fact it'd make me look fatter than I already am!

DavetheCat2001 Thu 23-Mar-17 17:26:31

Very differing opinions.

Hmmm..thought the green one might be a 'safer' option but maybe not.

Might hold off until the rainbow one comes, if I'm meh about it, I might send it back and order the green one.

Giraffeseyelashes Thu 23-Mar-17 17:41:26

I love the rainbow one!

paddypants13 Thu 23-Mar-17 17:58:56

I prefer the rainbow shirt but it's not my taste. I hate the green shirt. Sorry Dave.

DavetheCat2001 Thu 23-Mar-17 18:04:34

That's fine. I like the honesty on this board! smile

I think my taste is a bit marmite!

wiltingfast Thu 23-Mar-17 18:35:42

If you really must, then the rainbow one definitely.

That is quirky funky etc.

The other one could be per Una from m&s imo!

Pistachiois50pmore Thu 23-Mar-17 18:51:04

This one is nicer from Rixo I think

2017SoFarSoGood Thu 23-Mar-17 19:02:34

for the money neither seem to be worth it. The green is too... just too! The rainbow is too trite, if a shirt can be such. Nah. Keep looking.
