Sorry - me again

Have had lots of help on here in the last couple of days but I need more!

I have a black corset top, that I am thinking of wearing with a black 1950s style skirt to a party. But what can I wear over the corset to hide my flesh a bit?!

I had visions of a lovely, delicate silver capelet but can't find anything of that ilk.

Any ideas much appreicated. Budget is more M&S than Coast.

This - thought it's a bit sheer

Another Next offering

janeite Sun 14-Jun-09 19:27:22

Ooh I do like that one. But I find that the clothes in our Next never have any kinship with those on the site and mainly consist of hideous pink things in strange shapes. Will have a look for that but could do with some alternatives as well.

And I can spell 'appreciated' - honest!

Less fond of the second one - a bit too bridal.

Some Ebay options

janeite Sun 14-Jun-09 19:29:36

Not Ebay. Want to be able to buy in store.

Fussy - sorry.

Would you do ebay? omen_s_Clothing?hash=item27a934cf58&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12%7C66%3A2%7C39%3A1%7C72%3A 1685%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50 emQQptZWomen_s_Clothing?hash=item3ca2aabf4c&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12%7C66%3A2%7C39%3A1 %7C72%3A1685%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

cross posts!

Pennies Sun 14-Jun-09 19:35:06

Maybe not glam enough

I know what you mean about Ebay - I'm a bit like that too!

janeite Sun 14-Jun-09 19:35:14

Thanks anyway.

Pennies Sun 14-Jun-09 19:36:41

Oooohh look -,5,shop,women,womenknitw ear,bolerosandshrugs Monsoon have loads]]

janeite Sun 14-Jun-09 19:36:46

Don't like the M&S one and I think it probably comes forward too much at the front and would make norks look huge. Would like something to 'lift' the black a bit I think.

Thanks though.

Pennies Sun 14-Jun-09 19:37:13

doh! Monsoon have loads

janeite Sun 14-Jun-09 19:40:26

Agh - don't like the Monsoon ones either. Am thinking pretty and delicate and fluttery, rather than knitwear I guess.

Pennies Sun 14-Jun-09 19:46:35

I know you said not Coast, but if you find £50 in the street there's this, though it may present the same prob as the M&S one coming too far forward.

janeite Sun 14-Jun-09 19:48:40

I'm so sorry - I don't like that one either. Really I just need something to cover my shoulders a bit of my back: anything that comes too far forward would detract from the corset and add bulk I think.

Sorry. blush

Pennies Sun 14-Jun-09 19:50:09

OK, one last try: A=5513079365422133049004 this]]

Pennies Sun 14-Jun-09 19:50:31

GAH!!! this

janeite Sun 14-Jun-09 19:52:12

That one is unavailable but a good shape - and good price. Think I'll try to find the Next one in store, unless anybody else can come up with anything.

Thanks for your help.
