Looks fantastic on,very "period drama" though not exactly "trendy" but It's lovely on. Thoughts on is it too old for a 34 year old tall and curvy size 16 mum. What colour and what style of top?

Ta folks

Er.. trying again ta da

it does look very old and dated. Although you could wear a polar neck top, with some good looking boots on, and a belt on the hips.

fishie Wed 01-Oct-08 21:40:07

maybe something like this but you'd need to get the same boots as in orig pic.

FairyMum Wed 01-Oct-08 21:41:15

shock No!

controlfreakinfreaky Wed 01-Oct-08 21:46:05

that is soooo not nice.

horrible length / too fussy / dull and drab colour.....

carries Wed 01-Oct-08 21:46:08

FairyMum Why?

TurkeyLurkey Wed 01-Oct-08 21:47:44

You may end up looking old before your time in it. Although agree could pull it off with polo nack and trendy boots. Hard to do though.

What about this

Quite different.

carries Wed 01-Oct-08 21:49:07

mmm.. old before my time. Hate that, but also hate mid length and above knee skirts cos got fat legs.

controlfreakinfreaky Wed 01-Oct-08 21:50:39

much nicer imo.... but still got a frumpy thing going on in the skirt area....

for what purpose are you wanting it? work? play?

carries Wed 01-Oct-08 21:51:01

Thank you folks! Opinions not what I hoped for, but honest!

SparkyFartDust Wed 01-Oct-08 21:51:27

I don't like it carries.

I want to but don't. imo the fabric/ pattern doesn't suit the style of skirt. This one wouldn't give shape to thigh/leg and looks like it might not flatter.

My friend wears this style but more cut on bias and slightly shorter- they look great.

what do you like about it?

FairyMum Wed 01-Oct-08 21:51:37

You need to get yourself off the Pera Una website. If you have fat legs, these skirts are just going to make you look even fatter. Get yourself a nice knee0line skirt. Don't hide away!

carries Wed 01-Oct-08 21:51:39

Play. Casual winter wedding.

controlfreakinfreaky Wed 01-Oct-08 21:51:42

most flattering length for everyone is just below knee, ending on the bit where your leg goes in before calf...

FairyMum Wed 01-Oct-08 21:52:20

White stuff skirts very nice!

controlfreakinfreaky Wed 01-Oct-08 21:52:50

budget?

controlfreakinfreaky Wed 01-Oct-08 21:53:20

dress better than skirt for wedding (and easier)!

mabanana Wed 01-Oct-08 21:54:54

YOu'd look like a refugee...or a witch! It really is horrible IMO. Fat legs? Easy, nice A-line knee-length skirt in a stiffish fabric (eg denim) black tights and Duo boots.
