My usual attire is straight/ boot cut jeans with a clean cut top but I fancy a change and still look about 15.

I'm after a more polished, grown up look for every day wear. Practical without being boring.

I'm 5ft 2", size 8 not very curvy at all with the exception of a "perty bottom" as dh kindly puts it wink.

Looking forward to responses, thanks.

Boogie I don't see anything really wrong with that you already wear.

Are you thinking of banashing jeans for tailored wide legged trousers and a few hundred quids worth of silk chiffon blouse?

Maybe ditch the jeans for a while, and go for all the fabulous dresses around right now. You can wear with fabulous necklace, or flats, or heels, or whatever really! And you can always wear leggings under, if you want. something like this should really make the most of your shape, and add a waist. But oasis have lots of good dresses. There is the wallis dress that has taken over another thread here: 20551&storeId=12557&categoryId=145409&parent_category_rn=140428&productId=1236135&langId=-1 and you could wear it again with fabulous jewellry, any pretty much any shoes.

Anything of interest? Or, have I missed the point entirely!

I think I know what you mean - at 28 i am trying to find a style that is smart and sophisticated but also still fun and funky. A friend of mine has really got me into accessories which I love. I have recently brought this dress

It's great because I can wear it at home witht the kids with flip flots or to work with heals and perhaps a nice little cardigan. Plus you can either go no boobs and look very demure or with a bit of wonderbra help look a bit more womanly!
