Help! I urgently need a top for a night out

<wail> I’m so indecisive and stuck in such a rut that I don’t know what to buy. And it isn’t too hard ... something to wear with black skinnies and heels. Not too bare.

Please can someone give me some suggestions or link to ideas please?

Thank you.

What size are you? Big or little boobs? Hair colour and age?

Fluffysparks Mon 23-Oct-17 21:57:44

What’s your age/figure etc? Does it need to be next day delivery or something, and what kind of night out? Sorry if I sound really pressing blush

Oh sorry ... good point. 8-10. Teeny of nork. Hair brown. Age 48. Yes def next day delivery. Panicking!

Orangebird, you’re a gem! That one isn’t me ... but thank you so much for looking!

Don't know about black top with black skinnies, but here?

Have a look at mint velvet at John Lewis. They have some nice smart-casual tops but they are a little pricy. Give me a budget and occasion (e.g. local pub or schmancy wine bar) and I'll have a poke tomorrow. Aaand breathe OP!

Jigsaw?

A1Sharon Mon 23-Oct-17 22:53:34

Hush?

jenandjess Mon 23-Oct-17 22:56:28

OMG, you lit are fab! I love the Hush top! Not sure about black with black either, especially as I don’t wear a lot of black. Ok, Hush is a definite contender ... more than I want to spend but needs must and all the rest. Shall have a look at Mint Velvet now.

Oasis ?

Cream shimmer top?

With a gold bag maybe?

A1Sharon Tue 24-Oct-17 06:50:43

Gold.

Thanks ladies ... like a few of those but am going to brave the local shops, of which there are very few, and see whether I can find something similar. It really helps to have an idea what I’m looking for! If I have no joy, I’ll see who can do a next day delivery and order something when I get home. Thank you.

Super flattering top. I got it in black to wear with pleather skinnies. Can dress up or down.

I love the Oasis top. Now I know what to wear with my black coated jeans. 😁

I just got this delivered from Tesco which i really like and is a bargain! You need to go up 1 or 2 sizes though as the tops of the arms are really tight! I'm usually a 10-12 on top and I had to get a 14 for the fit.

jenandjess Tue 24-Oct-17 23:29:56

Thanks guys for all the great suggestions. I had no luck today but had a search through my wardrobe and found the perfect top! Got it in Monsoon a few months ago and forgot I had it - pink floral with 3/4 length fluted sleeves and looks great with black. Thank you again!
