no it is not v exciting I accept - however skirt is v exciting - it is RED VELVET what's not to be excited by. Someone on an earlier thread, when I was talking about getting it shortened, suggested a lovely top but I feared it may upstage the fantastic velvetty fantasticness of the skirt
I like things that I can get wear out of. Also I like reductions! I am playing safe I guess... oh I'm going to wait and see what it looks like
Ah well now you've described the skirt I think maybe yes a plainer top would be a good idea. A red velvet pencil skirt sounds v sexy. You wouldn't need much embelleshment of that. Do you have a link? <nosy>
Why not send for the jumper anyway and see. You have lovely high shoes too, I hope?
yeesss... if only I were tall and slim! I don't think I can pull off that much bling tbh. I want to be a bit strokeable I think. I've ordered another top off East which is a chiffony thing with a tank top body, in black, but they don't have my size (12) so unless their sizes come up big or small I'll be sending the 10 and the 14 straight back
I need to buy shoes. But I think we are talking New Look shoes rather than anything pricey. I have about 5p to my name . I'd like something high, but not too high. I have t walk everywhere, and I live up a hill
I second/third all the 'bit boring' votes I'm afraid. Looks nice enough for during the day or wearing to work, but not if you want to look fab in the evening. Loving some of the suggestions though....and a size 12 is perfectly slim lady; don't do yourself down!
